New Member and 1st Time Class A Owner

Hi to all,

I look forward to learning about owning a Class A motorhome and also sharing my experiences with everyone. Currently I am doing a lot of reading and learning about flat towing. I am planning on flat towing my 2014 Silverado. If anyone has any suggestions or can direct me to a specific posting, I am all ears.

Thanks in advance.

There are many past posts regarding towing a vehicle. The most common names for tow bars and equipment are Blue Ox, and Roadmaster. Do a search for either name and you will find a lot of info.

Well first off is the Silverado towable four down?
Then, is it within the weight limits of you MH for towing?
Then you can look at the specifics of towbars, baseplates and braking systems.
Have never seen a broken RoadMaster towbar, there have been several postings about Blue Ox breaking though.

The 4x4 Silverado is flat towable. You will need a tow bar, base plates and a braking system. I strongly recommend weighing it first to ensure you donít exceed your coach GCWR. The GCWR is on a data plate on the drivers door or area.

Thanks to all for the information and warm welcome. My setup will be on the edge of my motorhome's capability. I will have to limit what get's loaded in both vehicles that's for sure.

I'm sure I will be looking for a different tow vehicle soon.
