HAHA! that's just the thing - they have no experience towing ANYTHING! but they are GUYS. they think that cars and trailers are in their genetic material. To them it's like asking how they know how to pee standing up - they just "know"!
yes, there is a hitch receiver, i think i was using the wrong term. i guess what im looking for is more like a towing system. and no, we wont be packing heavy. there's 2 of us in a 84 suburban - we could live full time in that, without the trailer.
yes, we will be doing a cross-country trip in sept. highway driving is happening.
after more research i *think* i want a reese Straight Line Dual Cam 600lb/6000lb
is there a risk in getting oversized weight dist. bars, etc? the tounge weight will be heavy, but the trailer weight is almost 1/2 of what its rated for!
or is the #550
more inline with what i need? (just cant seem to find it sold anywhere)...
