Wondering if the frame can take the abuse? I will place a call into Forest River, but figured I would get a real world answer from you folks first.
I own a 26' commercial boxtruck and wondering if I can tow my 2014 Salem Cruise Lite 23RKXL travel trailer with it. The problem is that the hitch is like 12 feet past the axle and the suspension is very stiff. So that is a lot of bouncing transferred to the frame. I won't be towing for super long distances, maybe half hour each way, but it's Los Angeles freeways and they are crazy bumpy.
I've killed an R-Vision 25ft Trail-Lite "Super Light Weight" frame before towing with this same truck... it literally bent it where the "V" of the arms/tongue/whatever its called connect to the main frame and the whole trailer was dragging on the ground.
A fabricator who fixed it said he couldn't believe how thin the V part of the frame was and replaced with heavier gauge.
This is a brand new trailer and I prefer not to repeat the problem and don't want to beef up the frame and void the chassis warranty if I can help it. Wondering if the frame is made stronger from the factory I guess.
