Why did my buddy's trailer tow so much easier than mine?
Performed a "rescue" tow of my friend's rented TT recently on our trip from Alabama to Yellowstone. His TV had to be towed due to a failed alternator and I towed his trailer from Island Park, Idaho the last stretch into West Yellowstone. It was a 26 footer with a dry weight in the low 6000's and 15 inch wheels. What struck me was how much less my truck seemed to be working to get this trailer rolling and up hills compared to my 25 footer with dry weight in the low 5000's and 14 inch wheels, both with tandem axles. The heavier TT was somewhat more aerodynamic but not radically so and that wouldn't matter with the initial moment of inertia process. Appreciate any feedback on if it's the bigger wheels or what?
