I have been towing for only a little over a year now, but I feel like I have learned so much. Why? Because I became a student of it. I talked to experenced people. I did countless hours of internet research. I watched Youtube videos. Then, I took all those things I learned and applied them to my real life towing experinces. My number one goal in doing this was to keep my family safe when travelling. You have to wonder what these people could possibly be thinking. A Tacoma towing a rig like that lacks so many things. Horsepower, transmission capability, weight, wheelbase, suspension, brakes. Hopefully his transmission went out before he got too far. It would be a case of fate saving someone from their own stupidity.

Traded IN 19BH......;-( Miss It!

I was very hesitant to buy the TT I did and it's only a 26BH, to tow behind my Avalanche, yet I see so many people towing much larger trailers with what seems to be a very inadequate TV and wonder how they do it. I can't imagine an enjoyable drive with some of the setups I've encountered.

Well, Cobra, clearly the weight police were slacking. If they aren't around to guide you, just ask your RV salesman if a TV can handle a rig. Seriously though, I think you're pretty wise to be concerned with overloading. Welcome.
