Hi Happy Days

Do you have a vehicle now that you would like to tow with? I cannot think of any vehicle that will tow a 30' that won't tow a 34'. I generally find a 34 tows a little better than a 30'.

UMM. Are you saying you are towing a 6200 lb trailer with a van that has a 3500 lb tow rating? Maybe I'm missing something but it sounds like you are about double the max for that vehicle.

There are a number of threads in existence that discuss manufacturer published tow ratings. This thread should give you all the information you need to come to your own conclusions.
