RVSEF (RV Safety and Education Foundation)

Here is a great video explaining how to match your truck to the 5er/tt and it put out by the RVSEF (RV Safety and Education Foundation). If you don't understand what all the specs mean or how they pertain to towing limits this does good job of explaining them. I think this would be worth pinning to the top of the forum.

Not a bad video. My observation is that he didn't address the need to apply the tongue/pin weight to the payload of the truck. Most folks run out of payload way before they encounter the max GCWR.
