So my wife and I are looking at getting us a Pop-up Camper (would be the first camper for either of us).
We have a 2013 Mazda CX-5 which we've never towed with before so we went to a dealer who was going to let us take out one of their trailers to see how the car can handle it, it was a 2013 Viking 1906 trailer.
The engine handled the weight easily, it didn't have any issues pulling or stopping the trailer, even on a pretty good hill.
However, I noticed that the trailer tended to sway and bounce a fair amount, which I was able to feel while driving. I've only ever towed before with a full-size truck in the past and I've never noticed this while using a truck.
Is this pretty standard when towing with a Crossover/SUV? Would a sway bar help at all or would that be overkill? Any other tips you might have?
Thanks in advance!
