Nash Towing Question

Hi, We've been looking at the Nash 24M and wonder how well it tows. The tongue seems light since it has the kitchen in the rear along with the bath.

Would like to know how it pulls. Our current Creekside tows great but we really like the FP of the 24M

Thanks in advance!

I agree that the tongue wt on that rig seems light and is just less than 10% of the dry wt. ORV tends to run closer to 12% or higher on their models. I also looked at some of the other Nash models for example the 23D and its tongue wt is closer to 12%. Now some of the light tongue on the 24M could be due to the fresh water tank being ahead of the axles. however the black and grey tanks are in the very rear of the rig so that would just add to the light tongue wt. The OTG models have more LPG and of course your batteries will also add to the tongue wt. I towed an 05 22H for over 10yrs with no problems - however its tongue wt is again around 12%.

Personally I would be a bit leary of that model for the reasons you mention.

I suspect the weights you are looking at are unloaded trailer weights. When you load the trailer with gear, batteries, water etc. you can adjust where you put things to increase the hitch weight. I'd be a lot more concerned if the empty hitch weight was heavy than light. Light hitch weight is a lot easier to fix. In no way would I shy away from a model because of empty weight balance.
