Ever see a Class A towing a Travel Trailer?

... was driving from my home to work this morning and saw a big class A DP with a 30' or so toyhauler behind it. not sure if there was anything in the TH or not as it looked quite level and wasn't moving around a lot, but talk about a HUGE, LONG rig.

wonder if it was so the kids would have their own site?

just interesting to see them heading down the road like that.

It might have been a delivery from the MFG, if they were new, so likely empty.

I could see 2 families traveling with a MH towing the trailer and one family member driving the toad separate, but still have to watch your weight. (unless you got a BIG DP or Super C)

no, motorcoach deliveries don't allow anything to be towed except a tow vehicle, less than 3,500lbs.

but, I've thought about this type of setup for ourselves, the teen boys would like a place of 'their own'... it could work, but the motorcoach's GVCWR would also have to be high enough to allow it - that would be a stretch.

Yes I have seen a MH towing a TT several times. Not real common but happens on a regular basis.

I guess if they won't give you much for trade-in, you might as well keep it.

I have seen them used for large families, like 6-8 kids large families. Only a few times, but it makes a lot of sense to me. Who wants to sleep 8-10 in a motor home? The first time I saw a pair pull into a campground I was not really surprised to see the kids all pile out of the motor home (obviously stayed there while driving), then the oldest ones went inside the trailer, obviously to set it up for camping. They stayed for the weekend, then everything got packed up and they left. They were obviously experienced campers.

Once I was in a campground walking my dog and noticed a large DP pulled in at an unusual angle. I realized that he was dumping at a vacant spot. My second thought was that he was awfully close to a large trailer parked there. As I got closer I could see that he was towing the TT. The DP was 44FT and the TT was 36. This was not an isolated campground. It required driving several miles down city streets to get to it. After dumping off he went. Not for me.

I have seen a MH pulling a travel trailer a time or two. Big class A's should handle a pretty good size travel trailer.

I guess one concern could be how close the travel trailer would be to the MH. Could be a problem backing or in a tight turn.

Yep. 2009 iRV2 Rally. Member 007 brought the pop up for his twin girls. They had their own private suite!

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
