RE: Class C rear end sag and banging!

Your 29' Class C built on a Ford E350 chassis is most probably significantly over loaded on its rear axle. The E350 chassis uses a Dana 70 rear axle rated at 8500 lbs. Your 29' should have been built on a E450 chassis that uses heavier rear leaf springs and a Dana 80 rear axle rated at 9600 lbs. Have you weighed your RV to determine the actual weight on the rear axle alone?

RE: Drop Hitch Receiver

You want your tow bar to be level with the height of the bar no more than 2" higher than at the toad. What ever you do don't select a drop receiver that puts the tow bar height at the toad higher than at the motorhome hitch. Doing that could cause your toad to jack up and crash into the rear of your motorhome in the event of a very hard stop or a crash of the motorhome itself.

RE: Dewinterizing issue

That is why you should learn to winterize your RV yourself. That way you will know how to unwinterize it.

RE: E350 vs E450 chassis pros and cons for a short 24 ft class C

Did someone mention that the E450 chassis uses a 55 gallon fuel tank and the E350 chassis only has a 38 gallon tank.

RE: Skirt or Bra or More?

Instead of a bra, just buy some sandpaper and use it to scratch the paint and the windshield on the front of your toad. You will get the same result but you can buy the sandpaper for a lot less than a bra. I use a 1/4 in thick plexiglass shield that mounts vertically in front of my toad on my Blue Ox tow bar.

RE: Flat towing 2014 VW Beetle

I flat tow a 2016 VW Golf GTI with 6 speed manual transmission. My Golf was the guinea pig for Blue Ox to engineer and install a base plate for this car. However the Golf had locked steering requiring the key to be in the ACC position. I solved this problem by having a mechanic remove the steering lock pin from the steering stalk assembly. So far I have towed my GTI for over 8000 miles with no problems. So that VW officially does not approve flat towing any of their models, their manual transmission models are being successfully towed by many owners.

RE: AAA RV Premier said they won't tow dolly...

And why do people post meaningless last sentences?
