Hog makes a great point regarding wind to traction ratio. That shouldn't be discounted.

I wanted to point out that the Anthem and Cornerstones have ATC (Automatic Traction Control) be sure to use it in any limited traction situation.

And after enough of the beers you can drive in anything! You can even drive 70 MPH in 2" of snow in Nashville. Show em how it' done up north. Actually, a large vehicle with a stretched out chassis is about the best there is when it comes to handling on slick roads, until the wind or other vehicles comes into it. Having to negotiate 20 mph traffic with their four ways on and traveling at 70 you may find it a bit unsafe.

Well, I wouldn't do it unless I had to, and I have.
Major problem is the cars, leave a safe stopping distance and at least three cars will pull over in front of you.
One thing I did notice was that the braking on the towed came on slightly before the MH brakes and helped keep the rig straight.
