Re: Washboard roads

--I agree with the concept of using low pressure in more extreme situations. also have the luxury if always running in similar conditions for specialty tires. we would use high floatation low pressure tires with bead lock rims made for use at lower speeds if required. I don't like the idea of using regular tires and reducing pressure as a common practice on washboard.
--I lived and worked in an area for many years with no paved roads. It was common practice to have two spares, often that was not enough.
--Most had raised suspensions to reduce rear drag, some had articulating dual suspensions...all were at least double the weight of an escape, in many cases these trailers could not be run at highway speeds on pavement as the soft articulating suspension would cause the trailer to sway and in some cases flip.

--I was thinking most people were looking for suggestions to use where washboard occurs on good forest roads and average speed was higher than 20 mph with two wheel drive vehicle.
