So after almost 25 years of camping, DH and I are almost ready for our longest road trip yet. We spend every summer on a site and just take a short trip each spring. This fall we are going to Ashville.
Thanks to the forum, we have our power surge protector, new tires on the TT and know the route we will take from Ohio to NC. The only thing left to do get the TV ready. Our 2011 Ram, 5.7 gas 3/4 ton max cab needs new tires. The C load Firestones aren't to be trusted on a longer tow. We like Goodyear tires but can't decide if we should upgrade to E load or stay with C. (I have been told D load don't exist for our tire size.)
We tow a 2015 Windjammer 3029. Dry weight about 7400, loaded about 8500 pounds. just 2 of us and a couple big dogs but I don't pack light! C load tires would give handle almost 12,000. I think we will be about 9000 - 9500. I hate to give up the ride by going to E load.
Am I pushing the max on the C load too close? Love having this group to air out these issues. Love DH, but he knows how to put air in the tires and considers round to be good enough!
Thanks camping buddies!
