RE: Yet another what can I tow question

But isn't GWR subjective based on how much a person loads down the trailer? Doesn't it represent the maximum the trailer can be loaded down to?

RE: Yet another what can I tow question

This will be my first TT and I just don't want to have white knuckle rides. I'll have the whole family loaded in the truck and I just want to be safe. I doubt we'll travel much further than 4 hours away from our home location which is Columbia, South Carolina (smack dab in the middle of the state). We'll probably hit the mountains of NC or the beaches of SC mostly. Looking at a few campers with a UVW of 5,500.
