I have no idea what that thing is capable of towing but you'll be able to back that thing into any site!

I don't see a problem. Does it have a backup camera?

might have an issue with the mirrors - some states require 200 feet visibilty behind the trailer - otherwise you are good to go

No problem After all if a Tundra can tow the Space Shuttle then the Goldwing should handle the Eagle

I think you might want to look into a slider. No good having the front cap bumping you in the back of the head while backing into a tight spot!!

Maybe that is why they require one to wear a helmet

Hmmm, I'm just not sure. I'd suggest you check with your RV dealer to make sure you're not overweight.

Dont forget some 10 ply tire for the rear and all would be good.

My RV dealer said I'm not over weight at 5'10" & 180lbs.
