Hi Ed & Sharon... since I live in Florida, I have been in some terrific afternoon thunderstorms, where the winds easily exceed 50 mph. The TM is rock steady during these storms, but the noise level from the driving rain can be a little loud. But it sure beats tent and canvas popups for safety and keeping dry.

Thank you so much to all for your responses. It sounds like that would not be a problem for us. The sound of the rain on the popup is probably comparible. We have cement buckets for the poles on our popup awning. It is probably the most secure of the entire unit, but thanks for the tip on the TM awning.
Ed and Sharon Conley

I'm from South Dakota, Wind is a way of life. Thats one reason we went with the TM. On our first time out this weekend I pulled in 40mph head winds. On our 2nd day it was very windy. 35mph off the lake. we where broadside to the wake, and besides hearing it, I rarely felt the wind. every now and then a light "bump" when a gust hit, but no rattling or Vibration. I was very pleased. I had a class A that moved more than my new (to me) TM

Default Wyoming Wind Sock

Off topic, but I would rather be here in a TM than a pop-up. This wind sock is located outside of the Cheyenne National Weather Service Office. Further off topic, the Wyoming State Tree is reported to be a telephone pole.

My hosting position with the USFS presently has me stationed on a shelf high up in a valley completely surrounded by high mountains. Because of the terrain, the TM is hit by high winds (there must be bursts of over 50 MPH) during the day, and one night so far. The TM moans with the wind but has stood the test so far. The winds are so bad that the FS even had to weld chains to a previous host's TT to keep it in place. The limited space for the placement of the TM means that the rear end takes the brunt of the wind. Some air trapped under the back bed does push itself under the bed near the flip up dresser and thru the inverter panel box. Thank goodness this hasn't happened when it is cold, so far.

Love that Wyoming windsock picture, LOL!!!

We've only used our TM once so far, this past weekend so I can't say we have much experience with this. But we had some wind on Sunday and we didn't feel a thing inside. I had actually made a comment to my husband at that time that in our previous tent trailer, that kind of wind would have had me wondering and looking out the windows...
