Motorhome Magazine 2017 Guide to dinghy towing?

I apologize if this has already been discussed....
Does anyone know if "Motorhome Magazine" has published the
"2017 Guide to Dingy Towing"?

Thank you!

FMCA published a guide in their Dec. digital edition. It will be published in their January magazine. I don't think Motorhome mag has published as yet.
Find a FMCA member and they can help you by downloading the list

Even though the FMCA guide comes out near the beginning of the year as LJowdy has pointed out, I believe Good Sam Media's MotorHome Magazine Guide to Dinghy Towing is a supplement to their April edition. It usually is available online on their website in late March/early April (?) ...not certain on the exact date but you can keep checking on this page:

Good Sam's MotorHome Magazine Downloadable Dinghy Guides

Raven13, you may have missed that link I posted in a previous post above but if you're not a subscriber to MotorHome Magazine itself, you can start checking that link around mid-March as they make it available to non-subscribers. I'm now certain that the Dinghy Guide is published and included as a supplement in the April edition of the magazine ...whenever that is sent out; sometime in late March? It's been quite a few years since I've been a subscriber so I can't remember exactly when the magazine arrives on the doorstep or is available digitally.

If you are a subscriber to the magazine, then I guess you'll get it when you get it in March/April --lol.

As has been mentioned, if you know a FMCA member and assuming you're not, I'm sure they'd be glad to share it with you now as theirs is out in the January edition.

"Raven13".....If you know what you want to buy, you can often go online and find the user's manual for many new cars. Download it and look under "recreational towing".

Oh, good to know! I guess we'll go out and try to find an issue on a newsstand.

Thanks for your reply, palehorse89...

We really don't know what we want. This will be our first experience towing a vehicle, and my husband wants a vehicle that isn't too big or too heavy and one we can tow 4 down... I'll be online searching "recreational towing"!

Thank you, Dutch Star Don!
