If you get stuck, I have a 4wd truck, a good sturdy chain, a 4 Ton come-a-long, a tractor, and a camera to record the memories. After we pull you out, we'll have pancakes anyway. Let me know , Raz
To reiterate...
"4WD has its place of course, but for on-road towing of a fiberglass trailer, the cost and liabilities outweigh the advantages by some margin. IMNSHO."

Thanks for the invite...
It would be a pleasure to meet with you and share a meal as well.
Real maple syrup is sure a lot better than the maple "flavored" stuff which claims to be a "Great Value"!

Unfortunately, we won't get to explore your hypothesis since we never go that far without taking Eggy-Sue, so...

Vermont is off our Itinerary every year from Thanksgiving to Easter (at least) and "one outstanding reason is that I would not take a fiberglass trailer anywhere 4WD was needed."

Still cheaper for me to tow with a 4x4 than it is to own and operate and buy insurance on two separate vehicles - one for towing and the other for getting up and down in the winter the mountain I live on & into the Rookies in the middle of winter for skiing
