Found a good site for reviewing Tow vehicle capabilities

We are just getting started on our 69 Ambassador 29ft and are looking for a tow vehicle found lots of info but not enough in one place.

I ran on to this site

You can view 2000 and 99 online or request another year for all vehicles.

Hope this helps

I find it hard to pay $4 to know what the tow rating on a vehicle is when I can call the dealer and find out for free.
Those who know your tow ratings we could all post them here.
Sounds like a good thread. I think I will call it "What is Your Tow Rating"

Great idea, BUT.......

the TOWING FORUM may be a better place than FLOOR REPAIR. Do we have a TOWING FORUM, you ask??? I just found out that we do.

I was looking for towing tips, and found them about everywhere and anywhere, like in:

<What do I have to get to tow? by virginiak in Our Community

<introduction // need help deciding tow vehicle by jmeredith in Our Community

<New Owner-tow vehicle discussions by JodynJeep in Our Community

<Suburbans-tow ratings by Craig in On The Road

I found plenty more posts in <Our Community> , <On The Road>, <Axle, Brakes, Wheel & Tire Forum> and even several in <Repairing or Replacing the Floor>

This makes it very difficult to locate the type of info we are looking for.

I basicaly have to run the "search" all over the Forum, instead of zeroing down on the right place,.... like the TOWING FORUM , that I have discovered too late - well hidden in the ON THE ROAD FORUM.

"1stimer", I bet you did not check that forum. The first post was "Late Model Vehicle Tow Ratings" by Organic Hosting on 03-13-2002. []

and you can look at an incomplete summary of content: <Frequently Asked Questions about towing> found at

My summary is: the nearly random postings have been slowing me down in my search for my "perfect" Airstream.

I spend too much time trying to find information instead of digesting it.
