New Casita

We are looking at buying a new Casita,17 ft. long. As you know it comes standard with 14" tires. We will be pulling with an f250 ford van.
, and we were wondering if upgrading to 15" tires would be better for the tow.

Looking forward to the group and the info.

No, because for every inch larger increase, you only gain 1/2” in height. I don’t think that you would really notice the increase or lack there of. Now you do get a better choice of “D” rated tires in 15 vs 14 inch wheels.

It is for that reason I would choose the 15” upgrade if it is available: availability and choice of tires.
