We have not driven too far, but every once in a while I feel a touch of "tugging" but most of the time, I don't feel like there is even anything back there. Not sure if the "tugging" feeling is normal or not?
Wow... Pulling your popup with a 3/4 ton van. I pulled my popup with a 1/2 van and I literally would forget that its back there. That must have been one fun tow!
I'm not sure how its supposed to feel. I've never pulled anything bigger than a popup. With the help of others here I made the decision to move to a bigger tow vehicle even before I have even pulled my 233s...which gets delivered in 10 days...but who is counting! :-)
With all the reading I've done on here yours is one of the few cases I've read about where all of the "tow experts" dont have to get on here and chirp in with "wayyy too much trailer for your tow vehicle". If you log on and read enough you'll see that a lot. I say good job on being prepared.
I'm asking this because I'm awfully curious how well my tow is going to be. The numbers are one thing...but reality is another. I'd love to hear what your first real tow experience with some distance turns out to be like. I've seen very few people on here towing a 233s with almost the same exact tow vehicle. Mine is a conversion but pretty much the same guts (6.0 and 2500). I have no idea what my wheel base is. Nice job on knowing those numbers btw! What year is your van? So..let me know how that first tow goes.
