>Selecting Your RV Tow Vehicle
>I have a friend in Utah named “Skinbad”. I wonder if this is his rig.
He’s hooked up and ready to fly!! It’s amazing how the extra weight really smoothed out the ride in the SUV. He did have to air up the rear tires a bit (around 160 psi)
He added some heavy-duty chain for extra support on the tailgate (note that he used the “Heavy-Duty ‘S’ hooks to attach the chain) He also paid-up for some BIG 5/16 sheetmetal screws to attach the frame to the tailgate. Yeah, he knows it’s overkill, but he didn’t want to risk the possibility of having an accident.
Much of his time was spent on his front porch whittling down that MASSIVE 4×4 board to fit precisely into the ball mount receiver. Also note that he used a 14″ piece of 1×4 to help distribute the load more evenly–“You can’t be too safe, you know!”.
It cost a little more, but you just can’t be too safe when pulling a trailer of this magnitude !!”.
Look out Utah , cause here he comes !
