    That was a major reason we went back to the wing. My bride never could get comfy and relax on the RT . After 15k and lots of money we threw in the towel.

    :agree: All movement of the rear tire is transmitted directly to the hitch even if you don't feel it. Mine shook bad enough to break the tongue on a Bushtec trailer.

    I'm on my 8th Russell. The one they built for the RT was just what you asked for including thinning the back rest. If the rest of the Spyder was as good as the seat I might still have it.:thumbup:
