I brought this same question up to my wife. She has yet to pull our trailer. I think it's time to learn! You never know when the time will come when you have no choice. Jerry

Have towed a 28 ft travel trailer with no.problem. Dh will not let me tow our 27 ft travel trailer. Only difference is the weight distribution hitch. Did not have one on the 28 footer Now backing may be a horse with a different color

My wife's legs are too short to reach the pedals effectively, so no she doesn't drive the truck with or without the trailer. That's why I bought Good Sam Travel Assist, a good idea for folks my age.

My wife doesn't tow, she says she can and has towed travel trailers before we met. I am sure she can tow but being a nervous driver on 4 lane roads with any vehicle not the best option. This summer on two lane blacktop she is going to tow. In a younger life my Father had a heart attack while travelling in Quebec in the 60's, my mother had never towed before, from that point on she was the driver for the next 10 years.

I do it all. But then I enjoy pulling the 5 er around. KC,Ks., to Cincinnati is a tough haul, usually 9 hrs just TV, 11 or so with trailer. 9 mpg gets you to stop often, LOL. Good idea to get her to learn, bad idea to make her !!

I wish my DW could, she has major neck issues and sometimes the ride is too much.

I told my DH that want to try and tow out near the airport (no I am not crazy there is very little traffic going east LOL). I have towed before BUT nothing as big as this trailer 32'. I have towed the popup thru the heart of the city after a major flood, towed car dollies and utility trailers. Wish me luck!!!

My wife normally drives - she probably tows the camper (31') as well as I do.

Would love the wife to be able to drive our rig, she did drive the pick up and wood trailer but that's about it, with the Kenworth she plans to be like ET & phone home just hope we are safely off the road.

Yep mine can tow and "break camp", one of the first things we did was have her do a complete set-up & break down so that she would know what needed to be done.

I, on the other hand have no clue where the cookies are "supposed" to be kept so my solution is to eat them all!
