The writer seems like an arrogant ass to me. To paraphrase his thinking, "I know I've been advised the truck isn't nearly large enough for the trailer, and I know I have no clue how to tow a trailer, but that's alright, because I'm good enough to do it anyway."

I would love to have an Airstream…. Unfortunately, if I bought one I would never be able to afford the truck that would be necessary to tow it…. Oh, well…. Happy with my Rockwood Ultra Lite….!!

This reminds me of a story I read back in the 80s in a non-sail boating magazine. Two guys got a fast catamaran sailboat, possibly a Phoenix 18 (long time ago). It's a fun day sailer that could easily hit 20+ knots. So these guys looked at a map of the Caribbean and decided it would be cool to island hop from St Vincent all the way to Anguilla. At 50 miles or so each day, they guessed 3-4 hours between islands, one island a day, sleep on the beach, etc.

They took off with a cooler of beverages and sandwiches. No charts, no radio, no lifejackets, no paddle, not even a compass. They admitted getting a little nervous a couple of times when the wind died down, it was getting dark, and they lost sight of the next island. But they kept going, and luckily made it.

Unfortunately, the magazine wrote it up like a great adventure, rather than the idiocy it was.

Sarcastic and stupid

Yeah, saw that article a couple of weeks ago. As a long time reader of C/D, I understand irreverence is part of their mantra, but hauling that beast without a WHD and sway bars of at least a 3/4 ton was just dumb. The boys at C/D should stick to Mustangs and Camaros

I shudder every time I pass a "RENT ME" RV on the road! Had a guy pull into a site next to me with a rental Class C and complain because all his hookups were on the wrong side of the site. I started to explain, but then again I didn't want him trying to back it up anywhere near my rig!

Oh my, that was pretty mild. If you don't remember it you should watch the Long Long Trailer.
