Is a terrible tow vehicle. Even with the 450HP SRT V8. The driver is very low off the ground and will feel very unimportant and become depressed and will steer the rig into a nearby canyon/crevasse.

I won't name names, but I've seen some Toyota FJ TV that look terribly weight unbalanced. Like front wheels ready to go off the pavement balanced. The owners were complaining about traction. Go figure. Great view up there though.

Slowmover,
"Chains rated properly with proper TV attachment (which is not to the hitch receiver)"
This caught my eye. I have always attached to the little brackets that are part of the hitch receiver. Is this incorrect? Jim

The hitch receiver can come off the TV. The chains are to be attached to the TV independently of the hitch receiver so as to keep the trailer attached.

Yes, if the hitch is setup correctly.

Are you still happy with you Tourag as a TV for your 25' AS? I just purchased 25 International and want to use my '15 Tourag TDI for TV.
