Reason for MH

One other item for the "pro" motorhome list is travelling with the pups.

Easy to pull up to a resturant, attraction, friends house, etc,, start the generator, crank up the AC, and not have to worry about the little guys for a while.

After a lot of thought, the "all in one" convenience of a MH won out over a TT or 5th Wheel---and I already had vehicles ready to pull pretty much any type of towable RV.

Any option requires towing "something" from time to time.

Only had the MH since January, but I've never regretted the purchase.

I talked to a LOT of people about their hindsight thoughts after owning RV's for a while, and, one almost unanimous phrase kept reappearing......"I wish I would have gotten something a little bigger".

Does anyone have any pictures of an A/S MH pulling an A/S Trailer?

That would be neat to see that picture!

There are a few on this forum. Just wish I could find them. It was really neat looking. They are here though.

... relative advantages of TTs versus MHs and vice versa,

IMO the biggest advantage of a MH is that you can tow a vehicle, an impossibility with TT. If you travel a lot, it seems like a better idea.

The biggest advantage of a TT is that you can have a tow vehicle which is also useful for many other things. You can use as transportation, or carry lots of stuff. You can have several TT and only one tow vehicle.

We had fiolks in our unit that pulled a Bambi with a B-van. they recently sold the B-van and bought a classic MH. Far as I know, they are still pulling the Bambi. Her son stays in the Bambi. at rallys

It's hard to beat the style and grace of the 345! Of course I am totally unbiased and objective!

A Classic MH will not pull a AS trailer. The tow limit is roughly 2,000 lbs. Some folks tow Saturns at around 2,300 lbs.

Did I mention how nice Lug Nut's 2004 CCD 25' trailer is?
