Hi,

I need to tow my SV6 behind my motor home and decided to borrow my friends tow dolly. It is a Forest River HDCD80SA. Both GVWR and GAWR is 3500 lbs. It has surge brakes installed from factory. Weight of the van is 4000 lbs. He seems to think that it is robust enough to tow my van with no problems.

I normally tow a 4000lbs 20' boat, but will be leaving this one home on this trip.

My motor home is a 2006 37' Holiday Rambler Vacationer; Workhorse 24 platform.

I need to know what problems, if any, I may be facing if I decide to tow with this setup.

Input needed and appreciated
Thanks
Phantomiz
