I'd say wait till next weekend. Not like you're gonna be camping in it anyway, except maybe if you get stuck on the side of the road on the way home!!!
Be careful.

I would wait and tow in better weather. Safety first.

Towing in snow, ice or blizzard like conditions would be taking an unnecessary chance even without towing a trailer. I would also suggest for you to hold off until you get more favorable driving conditions to ensure a safer trip home for you and your new unit. Best of luck --Rob

I love this place. So protective! We are going to Casper to pick up our new TT, we aren't towing anything there. So, we set out today during a clearing and we had dry roads all the way to Bozeman, MT. Another 6 hours and we are there! It is supposed to be 50 and sunny Thur - Sat so we should be free sailing home. STAY TUNED... PICTURES OF NEW TT COMING SO SOON... and updates on RVW experience.... NERVOUS, EXCITED... AND I really like the hotel we are sleeping in, makes me think of how many nights I could spend in hotels for what I paid for the ROO!!! Don't worry... just kidding... don't turn on me! I can see it coming already!

BE GONE WITH THE SNOW!!!!!!!!! Bring on Camping weather...
