Itís up to the reader to decide how they want to use that info.

For the record, I tow my 29í trailer with the same thing I tow my boat, car trailer etc. A single rear wheel longbox diesel 3500 4x4. 8Ē forged drop hitch with no WD or sway do-dadís. My theory is like yours syclone... have enough vehicle up front to control whatís out back.


I agree. I seldom chime in myself as it can be very frustrating. I tow my 30 foot classic with a 3500 and I have a CDL license and Iím very lucky to live in an area where I can daily drive my truck. If I lived in a large city, I would probably be looking at the European SUVs due to the fact I would have no place to park my truck. Do what works for you and your life style.

I really hope people use other avenues for advice other that this site. 90% of the crap said here is BS opinions with no facts or experience behind the words. Reading these tow vehicle treads make me laugh as well as people stating their Airstream is a piece of sh** because the hot water heater stopped working. Come on people, letís get this site back to helping and encouraging people rather than smart comments and bashing people.

Thanks for this!
When I first joined this site it was much friendlier and less judgmental. More like a group of people in love with their airstreams all trying to help each other on their adventures.

Iím not sure when it became so much more judgemental and almost hostile.
Iím sure Iím guilty of this attitude as well and I am endeavouring to change my ways.
Telling someone that their experiences and opinions are wrong is rarely helpful.

Keyboards are the problem. As more people use their keyboards on a site, the more judgmental the site becomes. Sites, when small, trade information freely, in a congenial manner. We're all just trying learn.

As sites grow information becomes diverse and dense. Diversity adds noise to information. Density adds details to information. All of which add up to absolute positions. Often absolute positions are the only way to be heard above the noise.

This leads information to be binary, which in turn, puts information in adversarial positions, even when adversarial doesn't address the underlying problem.

Substitute thread for site and you can see how it grows from thread to thread on a site.
