Is this tow vehicle too small?

Please view the movie:

I think it could be used as an example of why we tend to say bigger is better.

That is just the point. A lot of Can Am applications I've seen are connected to 30+' coaches with very under powered, outclassed tow vehicles like the long, long thread with the Intrepid towing a 34' tri-axle Airstream.

I see by your profile that you have a much different setup, in which case, I applaud you as one of the few Canadian Streamers that do things correctly with a CanAm (or without).

BTW, I didn't really see any CanAm in the video...I was just playin around.
