I just posted in the newbee forum... figure I'll post here too. Here are a couple of random pics of the 5th wheel. The rig is a 04 Jazz 2830. RV'ing is all new to me as of last year but I am having a blast.



Couldn't get it to fit in the garage



Here's pulling tandum to Moab



My in-laws are in the red truck.. I'm in back truck



This happend at the end of last season



So I went and bought some E rated tires and wheels to go along with it.

Hello PClayton,

Welcome to iRV2, we're really glad to have you here as a new member and are looking forward to reading your posts about your RVing experiences and adventures. You'll find a great bunch of folks on this site who are very knowledgeable of RVing, the rigs we use, and the places we go in them.

I see in one of your pictures that you've towed a Jeep Wrangler behind your 5th wheel and I'm wondering how the rig handles with it behind there. I have a Wrangler Sahara that often I'd love to take along with me but have refrained from doing so due to all the cautions folks throw out regarding tandem towing.

Do you have the brakes activated on the Jeep and if so, how did you go about rigging it up. Do you get any tail wagging with the Jeep?

Again, welcome to iRV2, we're glad you joined.

I know that depending on where you live there are regulations with towing tandum... here in Utah you can tow tandum. It has been no problem at all. You get a little bit of sway only when going down hill over 65mph or so. Other then that it is minimum. My truck is the one towing the CJ7 and my father inlaw tows the Wrangler... We have made 8 or 9 trips from Salt Lake City to Moab Ut with no problems. Just keep an eye on your speed and I'd say you'd be fine
