    When we hitch our Palomino 4124 Y Series (light-weight) to our Toyota Sienna, there's a significant dip. The front end of the pop-up rides low. Is there any easy fix for this? We have a standard hitch with a brake controller, and often use a Swagman to carry bikes.

    Have you checked your tongue weight? It may be related to the way your trailer is loaded. Your tongue weight should be 10-15% of the trailer weight. If the tongue weight is in spec, two options would be a weight distribution hitch or spring helpers.

    Does the van sag or do you need a different ball mount?

    I used Timbren suspension helpers on my previous tv. Very happy with the results.

    I think I need a different ball mount. The van doesn't sag -- it's just not the same level as the pop-up.

    Having the camper a little nose down isn't bad it's better than nose up. Do you Have a photo of your rig hooked up?

    On the other hand, a little nose down is not a lot of nose down. As you requested, pictures would tell us a lot. But nose-down, I prefer to keep it within an inch or two of level.
