Outside online newbie article...

While he is talking about a class c rv, the gist of what he is saying applies to our fgrvs too.

Campers are Great, But (Gasp!) You Really Should Rent an RV | Outside Online


Might help some of the new folks here to towing, so posted it up.

There is at least one 4 letter word in there, so click at own risk.

Wasn't too bad,interesting and some good points, particularly about the semi- sandwich scenario.

Thanks for posting. I'll admit I'm a bit nervous. I have limited towing experience, but do have a Class B CDL, and drive a 47' straight job at work thru traffic in an emergency response mode. Plan to just keep things slow, not drive at night, not rush, and never drive tired.
