HI I have to just say I loved my hardside for all the reasons you mentioned above but I would compare it to herding a bowling ball down the road. Horrible gas mileage with that thing and horse trailer hooked on behind. But super comfy! Park it and pop out the slide and that was about all that I needed to do!
It was a 11′ Elkhorn fleetwood with a slide out man it was DELUXE but it got destroyed in a hailstorm parked outside not underneath a shelter. I had it on my 02 gmc sierra k 2500 4wd diesel dually which I would say would be the minimum to help with sway or whatever LOL but now I have a pop up which has its own issues but at least I can park it in the garage on the truck. Campers are like sheep…looking for a place to die if you ask me. So each have their issues you just have to learn skills to fix them. Best of Luck!
