Agreed! Hopefully he can find the take away/lesson from this and not get spooked entirely from RVing.

Agreed. Get back on that horse! Of course, he might be lucky and find a friend to teach him.

My brother has been through several BIG RVís including one that scared him to drive. IIRC, his current class A is about 40í so he has gotten over it. He came to visit once in the scary one, CO to WA and he had his eldest son do most of the driving.

He is a rancher, pulls loaded goose neck trailers, 5er, equipment trailers loaded with tractors/bobcat, etc. so for him to say it made him nervous was mind boggling to me. Then again, I have minimal experience pulling anything.

We just got back to Western WA from Fort Mohave, AZ. I towed our 2001 VW Beetle on a rental dolly which is the longest I have pulled anything. Nothing compared to our 5er but it still was an excellent experience. I learned you can not back up those things while hitched. Sigh, learned it twice. The second time in the pouring rain. I am sure it is etched in my memory. ďPre plan the route, donít assume anything like Ďthat road surely goes through.í Fuel mileage isnít the same in the rain, have a backup fuel stop planned.Ē

Oh well, being retired allows for deviation.

Yep. It's amazing how much you can tow when you don't actually own the truck.

It's just basically a one-ton dually. Of course it ain't level. It has a freaking house sitting on its bumper! I'm impressed it made it that far.

They shoulda rented one of those 26' box trucks on the International medium truck chassis. That would have done the trick.

Most likely went with the cheapest option available for them

Swangas! Idiotic trend around Houston, TX.

Here is a Houston City Constable car with it! https://www.reddit.com/r/houston/com...op_car_i_love/
