Mountain Roads or Highways

Am picking up a new Jayco Jay Feather RBM on Wednesday. Dealer is 200 miles from home. Haven't pulled a TT in 30 years. Coming home, can trip through the Ozarks on hilly twisty mountain roads, or add 50 miles and use four lanes most of the way. TV will be pulling 75% of capacity. Should I play it safe, or gain experience?

Hmmm, your from Mountain Home Arkansas

With that said, I would play it safe, you already have a lot going on with a new TT

Once you get home and get the TT the way you want to you could always head up to the mountains for a test run and camp out


Enjoy the new TT

Yes, Mountain Home, highway 14 through Buffalo National Park is the shorter, but twisty route from Little Rock. Great fun in a sporty car, but I think too rough for this old guy.

I agree with CJ, stick to the 4-lanes this time, get the feel for how it handles. After you are comfortable towing it, then go play! ST
