No really,tomorrow I'm going to hit the interstate with our TH ,33' ,for the first time. Just to get the feel for it,and start geo method with new tanks. I've towed large equipment trailers,and our old 24' prowler,but the semi,and wind effect will be new,or maybe different.
The relevance of this question is.....after seeing this pic I'm a little less concerned.
Sabre: 42'
Truck: 22'
Bumper to bumper: 58 1/2'

Immediately before this was a 19' pop-up pulled by a Durango (likely overloaded) for a year. My only prior towing experience was pulling a kayak trailer from the lake parking lot to lake side down a pedestrian path.

Want to talk about crapping yourself?! That was it!

I still get nervous with campgrounds and getting her parked, but I almost always go for back-in sites and have always been able to make it; even if we do provide an hour of entertainment for the neighbors.

With the length of the 36QBOK-7 you'll fit right in with the big-boy truckers. 10-4 good buddy!.

Wow that is a big unit! Our TH is 39' 11"...... We have the third axel too...I guess it is for hauling bikes etc.... Our first trip since the drive home from the purchase, is over Memorial Weekend. We have a back up spot......and I will be sure to take pics of the hour long entertainment! Beautiful 5ers out there! I so love the outside kitchenettes!! We have an outside refrig, and I love that!
