Georgetown 374ts Towpression
Sorry if I missed and or duplicated info found in other threads....but. With purchasing our new 374ts we new from the start we would be purchasing a Toad or trading our Jetta to allow for 4 flat. We narrowed the list with the 2 top choices being a new or used CR-V or Chevy Equinox (4cyl). Both coming in under 4000lbs. So many considerations and questions.
A small start.
1. The 374's receiver height. With both the CR-V and the Equinox the base plates are 15" off the ground. The receiver height 25". This makes me take pause.....10" drop hitch? Considerations on replacing the receiver on the morothome with a heavier receiver with a lower profile? Anyone have experience, suggestions?
2. After reading extensively, I'm leaning toward Redy Brute elite rv tow bar. Simplistic? Piggy back wiring the brakes and lights to the 374. Battery bypass(disconnect), or with the appropriate fuses on toggles to avoid pulling each time? Experence, suggestions?
3. Base plate is still up in the air, but the less cuting the better. Demco seems to be at the top of the list as far as ease of installation and avoiding modifacation. Experience, suggestions?
4. Bicycles? 4 of them need to come along. Because of the potential drop receiver, placing a dual adapter is not an option because of reduced load ratings. Should I weld on a seperate receiver for the bike carrier to carry between coach and dinghy, or install a receiver on the back of the toad?
