Have launched my Ranger with a 24 foot Class A (454 carb) and both of the 31 foot Class C's. Haven't had any problems with either C or A.. Unless it is an unusually "flat" ramp the back tires don't get wet. I have launched on some pretty steep ramps (COE mainly) with no problems. BTW the Ranger weighs in at approx 4000 lb.

I like the option of a front hitch, so I think I'm going to ask around and see if I can have one installed. With being a new RV'er I'm a little extra worried about dirt ramps and slick ramps. I'd really hate to get stuck.
Yes, this was one of the primary reasons we purchased an RV as we do a lot of boating, and we have a large family (5 kids ). Previously I'd have to drive my F150, pulling the boat, and the wife would follow in the mini van, now we can all ride in one vehicle and then camp at night!!

I agree I have a little anxiety, so I will be extra careful launching and will choose my ramps carefully!

Your situation sounds much like mine. We've got 4 kids and bought a navigator so we could tow the boat and carry all the kids. But with the 3rd row seat in it, there isn't much storage. We tented ONCE and it was a disaster with the smaller kids (1yr and 2yrs). So now we're RV'rs!

Yep, the pontoons take up at least part of the storage bays. And the $1.2 million price tag might be a problem too.
