Dash shakes/vibrates when pulling trailer

Why does my dash shake/vibrate like crazy when pulling my flatbed gooseneck trailers when empty?? It shakes pretty bad, and has since new, but as i am starting to pull alot again, it is really annoying me! Anyone else?? Any fixes??

that is a really odd problem....

Im sure that someone more familiar with pulling will chime in and give helpful insight.

Have you pulled the trailer with another truck empty to see if it does the same to other truck?

leveling kit is all, and the trailers do not do the same to any of my other trucks

typically only happens when the trailers are empty

apparantely no one else's truck does this?? Maybe it's the leveling kit goofing the angle of the dangle up?? It has rancho 9000 shocks on, wouldn't think that would change anything. Maybe just the trailer, even though it doesn't do it to my other trucks?? Anyone?

Sorry I have nothing to help but I would take the trailer to Ford and take a Tech for a drive and hopefully get it fixed
