Hi, I am hoping someone has some experience with this. I recently bought a 2008 Fourwinds Hurricane 30Q and had been towing a wrangler behind the coach. I sold the wrangler and I am hoping to tow a RAM 1500 4wd behind (want to use the same vehicle for towing as daily driving).
My issue is the Ram is heavier than the tow ratings I can find for the MH, the truck is around 5,800 lbs the hitch is rated for 5,000 lbs.
If I upgrade to a class IV (10,000 lb rated) hitch, will the MH tow it OK? Based on the manufacturer's info for the Coach it looks like it will work, is there anything I am missing?
The ford chasis seems to be more than adequate for the job & according to the GCWR I still have 10,000 lbs to spare even with the MH loaded to its max.
Ford Chassis 6.8L Triton
V-10 Gross Vehicle (GVWR) 16,000
Gross Combined (GCWR) 26,000
