I was just reading my February issue of Highways magazine. There is an article on page 40 called "Play It Safe" by Jeff Crider. It highlights RvEducation101
that teaches newbies about RV Safety.
They use as their shining example a woman named Linda Dragan. Here is a direct quote from the article: "The video was so good, Dragan says, that she watched it five times and gleaned enough information from it that she felt she and her husband could safely operate the unit. So the headed back to the dealership and purchased a 27ft slideout-equipped SunLine travel trailer that they planned to tow with their Toyota Tundra."
Towing a 27ft trailer with a Tundra? That triggered an alarm in my mind. I went to
Sunline web site
and found the 27' 2004 Solaris Slide Room T-279 SR which is the only 27ft slideout they advertise, has a GVW of 8600lbs
I then went to the Toyota web site
and found the beefiest Tundra, the 4x2 V8 Double Cab Limited has a towing capacity of 6800lbs and the V8 Stepside is 7100lbs.
Now I wonder what Linda found in the safety courses that made her think that she would be safe with that configuration?
Someone at Highways magazine didn't do their homework.
