Bigger TV????

I don't think he read the towing portion of his owners manual. We were eating dinner when the wife told me to look at what just drove into the RV park. I actually saw him pulling the trailer with that SUV. They are from Ontario, Canada. I prayed they make it home without an accident. Sometimes you have to wonder.

Pulling a huuuuuuuuuge trailer is one thing. (Probably travels on the flats of the country.)

Sooner or later..........you gotta stop it too.

That is SCARY!!!

But just for kicks I emailed this to my brother, who also tows with his Enclave (and is from Ontario, at least originally). I told him it's time to upgrade from his 10' tent trailer to a triple axle Airstream! LMAO!

We had a class 3 hitch on or Honda CRV........ Uhaul stocked it.(lowest price too)............. But the CRV at 1500 lb tow rating ...................

We have a class 3 hitch on our Outback more tow rating but....................

Both were put on to tow a golf car ..............(on a trailer)

I wanted more structure under the vehicle for trailer movement......

Setting it up is the easy part....... Keeping a transmission in it is another I see a failure coming................

With it's (the trailer) brakes it will stop / but may not in a panic situation..... You just about see any & everything...... Love People watching.................
