Looking at your unit, there is not a single road in all of GA that your tow vehicle could not pull your unit very comfortably. I live 40 miles south of Atlanta, and have driven all over GA pulling a trailer as well as driving a motorhome.
If you are a WBCCI member, there is an Airstream only campground 7 miles north of Helen that is a wonderful place to camp- full hookups at $7 a night. If you aren't a member, then it is limited to one night only.If you stay a week to 10 days, your savings in campground fees would pay for a years WBCCI membership!
It is a wonderful place to use for home base to run all over N GA.
Stone Mountain campground is very nice as well. You probably will need to check on reservations. It is in close to Atlanta, and makes the whole city available from there. The charges are more- do not know the current charges.
If you drive through the town of Atlanta pulling your trailer, go STRAIGHT THROUGH TOWN AND USE THE HOV lane.....if there are two or more in the TV. It is the safest and slowest lane either on the bypass or I-75.
The thing that makes it so safe is that the idiots in my state/area don't do stupid things trying to pass you or exit/enter around you. it allows you to only have to watch for traffic on one side. I have done this for over 10 years, and never a problem, except for one irate Harley rider. Have no idea what his problem was as I was doing 60 in a 55 zone- I was the slowest one there however.
PM me for a phone number if you would like to talk about the area by phone rather than here.
