Hi, this is great information. We are starting our reseach and have learned a great deal. Like find out the lenght we need 1st then the tow vehicle. We want to use for short trips initially but in a few years when retirement comes, would live in it for weeks. I'm starting a log and doing lots of reading, plan to start visiting dealerships. Thanks

Visiting dealerships and attending rally open houses are great ways to determine what trailer meets your needs.

Best of luck,

Thanks for the offer. We are on the near northside. I hear there is a central indiana rally at the fairgrounds the week before the race, thought that would be a good way to get to see some trailers and tow vehicles.

Also, do you find your F150 sufficient to pull your trailer. I'm going by the 80% rule, 80% of TV GVWR = trailer loaded rate.

Howdy Hoosier!

Welcome to the Forums from the North end of the state. We were just in indy for the weekend ( Erins folks are in Avon). I did not know there was a pre race rally at the fairgrounds... I will have to look into that.

Have a great day!
