[QUOTE=cwsqbm;2777154]We also used to walk to school, uphill both ways either in deep snow or 100+F heat. Thank God for progress.
Looking at DP motorhome, the weight of a 5,000 lb toad isn't going to be a major factor. I'd say that most modern (say 2000+) DP motorhomes have enough power to pull a Jeep. My goal is to slightly faster than the loaded trucks up the really steep hills.
I don't like to hold up guys that are paid by the mile, but I don't mind if I have to slow down behind them.
Of course, a 300 hp motor pushing 30,000 lbs combined will be roughly as fast uphills as a 450 hp motor pushing 45,000 lbs.[/QUO
Going "slightly faster" go ahead and stay behind the Truck, you will be creating what is call "turtle races"...the ones that think they have the Power to go around but end up taking 5 miles to pass while backing up traffic...besides, I thought none of us were in a hurry
