27' FB What's your TV- 2007 Classic?

We're looking into a 2010 27' Classic and would like to know what type of TV's are used.

Thanks!

Hi and congratulations! We towed our 27 Classic FB happily with our 250 Suburban. I did tow it from Oregon and through the mountains to Michigan with an Expedition but it was not really enough TV for the heavier Classic model.

As a practical matter your choices are full-size pickups or vans or larger SUVs like the Suburban or Expedition.

Vans have the disadvantage of being available in 2wd configurations only, aside from costly aftermarket conversions. They also have less cooling air reaching the engine and transmission, and are more difficult and therefore more costly to service.

IF I were doing it over, I would check the TV's tow capacity, wheelbase, differential, and make sure it has a tow package (tranny cooler, extra heavy springs, etc...). There is so much more to towing that simply the tow capacity of the TV. Most folks, myself included when starting out) think a tow capacity of 10,000 lbs. is all that is needed. The hitch is a big item - what kind of hitch will be used. Some are much more forgiving than others. Keep checking the FORUMS for threads on all the above. Don't find out after the fact that what you buy will pull anything, but the brakes may be too small or there is no tranny cooler, etc.... Learn BEFORE you buy. Good luck!

Thumbs up tow vehicle

We have a 2008 27 FB Safari and took it out West with a Dodge Durango/hemi for a tow vehicle. The TV was fine until we hit the Rockies going West to East. Not nearly enough torque to keep up with the grade. Now we tow with a 2008 GMC crew cab 2500 HD diesel. We love it and it has NO problem with the hills and gets better fuel mileage than the Dodge. We average 14mpg towing.

We have towed our 2005 25FB over 50,000 miles in the last 3 1/2 years. We have towed her with our 2004 Tahoe (5.3 liter/3.73 rear end) and found the towing experience to be just OK. The Tahoe lacked the necessary guts for a long steep pull. Most of the miles were done with a 2500 Suburban (6.0 liter/3.73 rear end). We have found that this combination works well in all circumstances.

A 27FB will probably weigh out at around 8000# ready to camp. You would probably be happier with a 3/4 ton something.

We have a 2002 Ford F250 Superduty Crewcab Diesel with automatic. Until recently we towed a 27' fiver. We are now towing a 2007 Classic 31. Towed it from Michigan to Alabama and towed like a dream. Although it is heavier than the fiver, couldn't really tell much difference in how it towed.
