Does anyone tow their boat behind and launch on the ramps with their class a?? I have a 22' pontoon that we use quit often at different lakes. When we had 30' class c we use to do it with no problems. I backed down ramps that I couldn't turn on and my wife drove boat off trailer. We have a 37' class a now and haven't taken the plunge yet. I don't feel like their would be any problems, just wondering what suggestions I might get from those that have had experience doing this.

While I don't do it myself, I live on a large popular lake in CA and I see all sorts of motorhomes (Class A and C, slide-ins etc.) including some large diesel pushers towing boats. They all seem to launch at various ramps without any problems. It is a fresh water lake, so rust is not a problem--getting your tail into salt water would require a thorough hose-off ASAP.

I appreciate your response. Having never been in CA I can only guess that maybe your ramps are probably large and not to steep. I am in the kentucky area and our ramps are not always the roomiest and sometimes fairly steep. Hopefully I can hear from some of the folks who use ramps like these also . Thanks again for your comments.

We did it for years with a 35' F53 with no problems. I would advise, however, if the driver has to leave his seat, that some one block a wheel on the rv after the parking brake and "Park" are set and before the brake peddle is released.....

Thank you but I don't think I'll be leaving the seat. Be to nervous letting it set on ramp especially on steep ramp. Wife can handle the boat loading and unloading just fine.
