Towing on rough roads

Just got back to MD from florida and dont know if it is me but it seems that towing the travel trailer amplifies every bump, dip or pavement blemish. Sometimes pretty drastically. Maybe i noticed it more because i haven't towed since November, maybe i have something set up wrong or its just the nature lf the beast. Has anyone else noticed this?


My tow vehicle is a 2016 f250 crew cab short bed 6.2 gas and i use a weight distribution hitch.

Guessing you took I-95 ? Just did the round trip from VA to FL and noted that parts of NC and SC are pretty torn up. Georgia re-worked most of their roads about 10 year back and is IMO the best, but its only about 110 miles. As for towing amplifying the bumps, believe that TT get it worse than 5v'ers. However there are some bad bridge transitions that really bounce things around on I-95...

Yeah went down 95. Yeah bridge transitions were bad and there were some places the stopped paving and didnt smooth it out and it just dropped off. The carolinas were very bad. Thinking of getting better tires for the RV to maybe help a bit

Tires really won't make any difference, but slowing down will or a different route.
