Referral

Thanks for the referral link Pageleigh! We're really looking for a 16' instead of a 13'. It will happen. I just need to be patient!

Maybe this will help in your search, ignore the JUNK in the title :

Naa it didnt some of us were just temporarily lost for words as to what further one can say today in regards to safe towing practises and especially in regards to a trailer at least 2500lbs over the cars towing ability.

Ken welcome! I am happy you found a great trailer that fits your needs but sure hope you will find yourself a vehicle better suited to tow that size of trailer safely for your sake and those you are sharing the road with. Most experienced towers know that trailer brakes can and do fail.

Carol?? Ken is one step ahead of you. He has already tested his combo without brakes. Works fine. Relax.

Aw c'mon. You are spoiling all the scarey fun. The safety posse has a new victim and they aren't gonna let loose until they get their kicks.

Thanks Emily! I had contacted the owner a couple of days ago. The camper sounds good, but it hasn't been used in 11 years; just stored. Not ever owning a camper before (tent only), I'm not sure what kind of problems I would run into and I'm about 2500 miles away.

Glad to see that nothings changed and as usual one of "good guys" is doing the usual "go for it" and has the humours side kick as well to egg it all on.


MC1 I didnt miss the post regarding the test performed. Perhaps you and Thomas should consider proposing the testing used by the OP as the new SAE J2807 Towing Standard. The automakers would love you for it. Pretty sure you would have no issues with getting them all to agree to doing that version & we all would have a lot more vehicles with specs good enough to tow even the heaviest of our fiberglass trailers

Sorry Carol, speaking for myself I would not be qualified to approach the SAE folks.

You may be interested to know that the SAE team did invite, and had Mr. T from Can Am attend their planning meetings as a consultant re J2807.

Oh sure, but did the SAE team have Carol's permission? She is evidently both a lawyer and a vehicle development expert.

There we have it the good old CanAM plug right on cue.

In this situation I would actually suggest that the OP might what to have a talk with Mr. T. in regards to this particular tug set up - after all even Mr. T. has his limits.
