The only towing difference that I have noticed between the 25 and 30 is that I run over curbs more often than previously. Getting better though. The bigger wardrobe is really worth the extra length. We have rarely been over 7400 lbs, even with all my wife's shoes and the little bit of "junk" I carry along. Also, I have never not been able to fit where ever I have wanted to go. Jim
That is very interesting.
We also have a 30' International Signature a 2013, and the most the trailer axles ever weighed was 7,440 lbs. And that was with our normal travel loading. Mostly its a bit under 7,400.
My wife also likes the wardrobe and I appreciate the extra room in the lav.
