Morning all, I am having to move our 2018 CC Cottage 40 CRS about 900 miles mostly all Interstate with small hills but no major mountain ranges along the way. Weight as most of you know is around 15,800 but the tongue weight is what is going to get you, 1583 pounds. I have a 2018 Ford one ton dully that pulls our fifth wheel of the same weight like it's not even there so not to worried re the actual weight but what does have me concerned is the tongue weight which is near max from what I can tell. Yes, considered a professional mover but looking at $3500 to $ 5000 to have this done. Just enough to get me to consider myself towing it. Anyone have any thoughts or experience?
You may want to check out uShip. They will normally come to less than $2/mile for a cottage. We had gotten an estimate from them but the RV park owner moved or CCK for us for $2/mile so we let him move it.
I would agree, get a good hitch and enjoy the drive and pocket the money saved. My first TT had an mt tongue weight of 875 pounds, add the two propane bottles, spare that was on the tongue and the battery. Tongue was close to 1200 loaded ready to go no problem being towed by any of the following vehicles.
2012 Ram 2500
2014 F 150
2016 F 350
