Trailer Life & SOB w/Saturn Outlook OVERWEIGHT
In the same issue that this topic is about, good ol' Trailer Life has done it again.
Page 65 shows a Saturn Outlook hooked up to a Blast 150 (SOB), a almost 19 foot trailer .
The Saturn is rated for towing 4,500 lbs w/ GCWR of 9,500 lbs.
The Blast 150 has a weight of 4,240 lbs w/ full fresh water, water heater full & LPG full. BUT NO CARGO and the trailer is rated w/ a carrying capacity of 2,010 lbs.........
OOOPPPSSS.. about 1,750 lbs over weight or you travel with out any STUFF & I always want my STUFF.
BUT they did use ADD ON MIRRORS. That way they could see the overloaded trailer......
As for the tire chain issue, If you put them on the TV you better put them on the trailer too. Haveing lived in Alaska for over 22 years & driving a big rig up there, if you need them YOU NEED THEM ALL OVER.....
Just like studded tires. put them on ALL 4 (or 6) tires of the vehicle. Remember you need to stop on that black ice as well as go.
My wife called both snow & icie 4 letter words.......
