Towing performance / recommendations
Our 2000 Jayco 3230 (32' class c) is built on the Ford E450 chassis with the 6.8 V-10. It has a GVWR of 14,050, and a GCWR of 17,550. With this large a coach on this chassis, most/all of the GVWR is taken up with the rig and our relatively minimal gear, leaving roughly 3,500# for a toad.
We will likely be setting it up for a toad this year. Currently have a 2010 Honda Fit which would work and is fairly light.
My question is: does anyone have experience towing with this chassis at closer to the GCWR? For other family reasons, I am playing with ideas about a different (heavier) toad, but don't want to end up with an impractical setup if I push the weight up toward the max.
