Toad Question

I know this has been asked probably more than I can see, so please don’t beat me up to bad. I have a 2011 Winnebago Access Premier 31N F450 I’m pulling flat 2019 Chevy Colorado 4x4 with brake buddy. I maintain my 62mph hwy speed excelling to 65 occasionally. Not experienced any issues but it’s just me and wife. No bicycles no big grills anyone have comments as we would like to go out west with this set up next year. Hear in Georgia not having issues.
Thanks

Nobody ever has any real issues towing out west. Everybody thinks you need 9,000 HP to drag a toad up a mountain pass. You don't. Just down shift and go slow if necessary. If you have to, unhook and let someone drive the toad. I've never seen anybody stuck on the side of the road because they can't get up the hill. Just make sure everything is within the weight limits and have fun.

hohenwald48 has it right - there is no reason for concern. You may be going a bit slower than you would like on the steeper grades, but you are going to get to the top just fine.



Keep an eye on the temperature gauge on those long climbs, just as you would in the Smokey Mtns climbing out of North Georgia.
