I was just checking the GVWR/UBW and NCC of a 25 foot Airstream Flying Cloud
and a 25 foot Bigfoot
with the front bed. I thought that the Airstream would be very light
compared to the Bigfoot
, but here are the numbers...Airstream GVWR 7300, UBW 5540 and NCC 1760. Bigfoot
25 foot front bed GVWR 7500, UBW 5450 and NCC 2050 pounds. I checked the specs on my 1993 Suburban with a 5.7 liter engine and it's rated to pull 10,000 pounds. Is it possible that I just don't know how to pull a trailer? Maybe I need to gear down more. I do put it into the gear above D for the hills, but mostly I have pulled the trailer on the flats in D. How does everyone else use the gears for pulling a trailer? I was quite surprised to see the weights come in very comparable to an Airstream for the Bigfoot. Maybe I just need to learn how to drive the Suburban. What can I say? I never took driver's ed since I got my license
in Alaska and they didn't offer it there.
