I,m interested in sharing ideas, problems and solutions with anyone who has gone down this road. You can see pictures of our combo here. Over all it's working well but can think of a few things and procedures I would like to improve that someone else may have already been through. Here's the link. Our website

Radar, welcome to iRV2.

That's an interesting set up you have there.

What is the weight of the Class C?

The only time I know my Yukon is behind me is on the big hills, and I suspect your Class C lets you know it's back there on the hills too.

Yah we know it's back there on the hills but she tows nice. Stable even in Cross Winds. it comes in around 9400 pounds dry which of course is the way we tow it. Once we get to our destination we load it up and it comes in closer to 10500 with us in it. Overall we are happy with the set-up but am wondering how others doing this are dealing with a few of the challenges we ran into along the way including

driveshaft issues
extra storage
safety chain issues
lights
power for running lights etc.

Nothing major but enquiring minds want to know.

radar,

We have been considering a similar setup. Maybe a lighter unit than yours.

Have you run into any problems with campgrounds wanting to charge you for 2 rv's?

Hi Terry. Not so far but keep in mind that for the most part we have been dead heading when we pull this little rig. eg, usually on our way from Vernon BC to Palm Springs where we spend about half our winter. We use Palm SPrings as a spring board to head into Mexico with the little rig. We also use it for day trips or weekends from Palm Springs. We are full timers so the little rig is kinda like our cottage. When dead heading we usually stay in Casino's Walmarts etc. In the campgrounds we do stay in we just explain the situation, that there are only two of us and that we use the little rig as our primary vehicle and not as an RV. Even Outdoor resorts in Vegas was accomodating although we had to put it in the storage compound at 5 bucks a night. We own a lot in Outdoor Resorts Palm Springs and had to get special permision to have it in on our lot. Again, a properly written letter explaining the situation was all it took although it was granted on a temporary basis only. Ours is kinda in a grey area as it is kinda a Bplus/C motorhome so it kinda falls in between the cracks a bit. Overall it has been a VERY positive experience and we are glad we went down the road to make it work. It has added a huge dimension to our RV lifestyle and allowed us to take in places we could not have gone with the big rig. Kinda the best of both worlds. I wish it was four wheel drive though. You wouldn't believe some of the back roads we have been down in the Baja. The duallys make it fairly solid in the sand and so far we haven't go stuck. (knock on wood). What were you hoping to tow??. We saw a Road trek behind a Beaver in Palm Springs just before we left. Good luck on your project.

We just returned from a trip to the Florida Keys and while traveling we saw two Class B RoadTreks at two different places being towed behind much larger rigs. Never did get to talk to the owners, but one merely parked the Roadtrek in front of the lot like a regular toad.
