dry weight tahoe tradewind
am i safe to assume that a 1978 tradewind (25') with a published dry weight of 4200 lbs, is safe to tow behind a tahoe 5.3 vortec with tow rating of 6800 lbs? i tow completely dry, and can't imagine that i would have 1800 lbs of sofa and cargo in the trailer.
i guess my concern is that although we have towed comfortably all over 2 lane mountain highways in arkansas, we are contemplating a trip to new mexico down i40 for 10 hours. i have the original eaz lift weight distributing hitch with no sway bar. i have never noticed any appreciable sway, but then again i haven't towed with 10000 18-wheelers down i40 before. is a sway bar mandatory? is the friction bar setup effective, or should i consider scraping the whole deal for a new reece dualcam or equalizer?
any advice would be appreciated. btw my tahoe is equipped with airride load levelling suspension.
