Novice....Looking at FC23FB....TV-BMW X5

Considering the purchase of a Flying Cloud 23FB. Plan to use our BMW X5 to tow and are researching the appropriate hitch configuration. Never owned a trailer with brakes and a bed, so lots to learn. Thanking you all in advance for your knowledge and advice. Really appreciate your input. Pat

Here's a link to a previous thread on a similar topic.

The search feature here isn't great - I just go to google, enter my search term and the word airforum and the results are usually very good.

Good luck.

Well good luck and welcome to the group. I had a good friend who pulled with the same BMW 2013 and had a 25 FC and he had no issues. Just take it slow and it will all fall in place. If you have issues or questions just ask. Lots of info here. Bill

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us. We had a 23FB for a while. It is a great floor plan.

Thanks all for info. We were quite nervous about the plan until we found reference to X5s in TV service. Much more encouraging. Pat
