Max angle for towing

I have a 37 foot 5th wheel. I want to take it camping by a lake. The road into the spot is angled from the hard top. I am wondering what the max angle, (side to side) is before I run into trouble, like "tipping over". I know most of the weight on the camper is lower towards the frame, but................

Thanks.

Todd.

Depends on too many things to give you a valid answer.

truck height. Hitch type, trailer height, total weight, and how you loaded it, etc. etc. etc.

Perhaps the customer service department of the manufacturer might be of some help.

I'd think common sense would prevail here observe it by eye. Are there other folks taking their rigs thru this area without any issues?

if this is a commonly traveled road for campers, and there is not a pile of them at the bottom of the hill, then I would think yours should make it too

sure is. I looked you up on Dmax Forum and it was you who turned me on to this forum. Turns out we have been involved in many conversations.
