Re: oldie but goodie -What Science Can Tell You About Trailer Towing, Pop Sci 1971

Hi: gocamp... Sure makes a compelling reason to buy a 5.0!!! The stability of the pin located over the rear axle of the tug is best. Seems like the over 2000 lb. recomendation of a WDH is vital for a straight trailer. Dual axles are better for longer trailers too, but that wasn't covered in the article.
Excellent read and thanks for posting it. Alf
