Hit the brakes real hard and the front tires come off the ground. Makes steering fun.

I towed my new, much bigger TT looking like that and thought it was normal. Almost wore out the rear tires between Missoula and Florida. Fixed now but no more eagle eye views of satelite launches...........

Agree with others, looks like a severe lack of WDH on that unit. Probably like someone said above, salesman (sure sir, yours can pull it with no problem with your bumper ball) !!!

If they hang a few anvils from the front bumper of the truck, they should be fine.

I have seen a Triple Axle 10,000 lb Airstresm being towed by a Honda Minivan. I could not believe it was happening. There is no way that is safe! A dealer here setup all types of under rated TV with 30 ft plus Airstreams.

Years ago I saw a front wheel drive Chevette or Vega towing 18 TT cross country. I saw him in a gas station with the rear bumper dragging the pavement and asked how it towed. He said " good but I loose traction on wet roads".

The SUV dealer said it would "tow" it. The trailer dealer said it will "tow" it and some friends and a blog said it would "tow it. Don't waste your money on those trucks it will "tow" it.
