I'm shocked that Newmar has this problem. I'm more shocked at the response. I do take everything on a forum with a grain of salt but the response from them about the 15000 pound trailer would have set me off big time.
This is absolutely amazing. To say that you"need" to tow a 15K trailer to make the coach safe is hogwash. Theymade an huge engineering mistake and I truly hope they take care of it for thatparticular owner and those like him. -Glenn
Everyone knows that the lighter the vehicle, the better the fuel mileage. One of the reasons that the Ford F-150 went to an aluminum chassis.
I'm not saying that the RV's should necessarily go that way, but I find it hard to comprehend that the RV manufacturers *build these beautiful mobile homes with loads of creature comforts, but do not provide for it to carry the creatures and their belongings.
* As I said build and not design! I do not believe that the manufacturers do a lot of design effort or even have any degreed designers.

That Newmar story definitely made me chuckle a few times!
But the serious side of it is that it's totally amazing that this is even a problem.
How do manufacturers send a coach out the door that basically becomes overweight when the driver climbs aboard?
