Towing a 33 ft Travel Trailer
I have lots of experience towing various trailers, but never a travel trailer over 24 ft. We are considering buying one in the range of 33 ft from tongue to bumper.
I am interested in hearing from others just what to expect when towing such a long trailer with my 04 Shorty 6.0 TD. From a combined hauling and towing weight perspective the truck will not be overloaded. And I will be using an Equalizer Hitch.
But I am wondering how different the handling etc might be from towing the 24 footer. Will the larger trailer pull the truck around, etc?
Will appreciate any comments from others who have experience with this senario.
