I have recently purchased a new Slingshot 29BHS, which includes the Secure Stance axle configuration. The information I have found on this does not offer much information and just generically indicates that this offers improved towing performance. Having never towed a tandem axle trailer previously I do not have any basis for comparison. My questions are:

1) How significant of a difference in towing performance does Secure Stance offer as compared to a more traditional axle configuration?

2) What, if any, impact does this have on the life of the tires? I have read through many posts on this forum about tire performance and understand that the quality of the factory provided tires may be less than desirable. I am concerned that the Secure Stance configuration may shorten the life of these tires even further due to the extra forces that may be exerted on the during corning.

Thank you!

Our 29tt has it and didn't see any big differance,maybe less bounce on concrete roads.

Only 1 year of towing so tires aren't bad yet.I do back in to a 90 degree parking area and try to "release" tension by wigling forward and back staight a little.

Seams like a good idea just tuffer to get a scisssor stabilzer between.

I have traveled from the canadian border to the mexican border on I 15 and return.The wide stance is better tracking even when trucks zoom past, less sway. I am on my 2nd liepert axle replacement and waiting word on a 2nd set of worn tires. When parking the wheel bend over or when making a ticht turn such as in a gas station I have 30 foot zinger Regards jim Taylor
