RE: Maximum towing

we tow a heavy 26 ft tt with a ram 1500 hemi and have done thousands of miles with it freeways, backroads, steep hills, done it all the truck is as solid as a rock, plenty of power of course, handling feels solid we are close to our max payload(within 10%)

RE: New Truck for New Empty Nesters

we tow 6000lbs with a ram 1500 hemi 4x4, 4door and i really wouldnt want to tow much more trailer than that the issue is the weight of the truck. this is true of 4 door trucks in general, they are heavy! if you decide on a 4 door truck check the payload capacity. you will run ouit of payload capacity long before you reach the towing capacity with our truck/trailer combo, we are very comfortable, no where near "the edge" and we tow 5000 miles or so a year, half our annual mileage

RE: Shifting An Automatic when towing.

we manually shift our ram hemi/8spd occasionally. mostly on long hills, up or down. rarely on main highways but on back roads regularly. mostly to limit speed on steep long down grades and to limit "hunting" on long uphills.

RE: Tow vehicle advice

definetly a case for a full sized 1500 truck, ford f150, chev 1500, ram 1500 we orefer a big lazy v8 over a hardworking, high revving v6 turbo as stated before, in two years you will want a bigger trailer especially for that cross country trip! select the truck with that in mindjust for reference, we tow 8000lb(loaded) 26 ft with a ram 1500, hemi 8speed. we traded up from a 24 ft 4500lb towed by a v6 dakota

RE: Not your dad's Airstream

1) won't sleep away from the wife for extended periods so dual twins won't work 2) putting the toilet directly next to 3 surfaces is stupid, from both a comfort and cleanliness perspective. Otherwise I like it, the storage is huge for that size trailer. good thing there's lots of storage, need it for all those pillows
