10 Replies and 1647 Views Looking for tow van tire replacement recommendations  1647  10 Started by  cashmo We have a 2000 Ford E350 van primarily used for towing a 24 ft enclosed trailer. While I was happy with their performance, the original Goodyear Wrangler HT tires were showing signs of dry rot. Tirerack showed good reviews on the Kumho Road Venture HT and the price was right but they're not a good towing tire. I'm guessing soft sidewalls because the van bounces and the trailer's swaying like never before. The nice folks at the Tirerack are letting me return them but before I order another se...

3 Replies and 1021 Views Buying new gooseneck car hauler, good brands?  1021  3 Started by  kb_solo2 I'm starting my search for a 48' gooseneck car hauler with living quarters. Are there any brands I should focus on. Or stay away from. I will be hauling two cars, so payload is a factor. I am aware of the various axle ratings, etc. Thanks for any input.

22 Replies and 2365 Views Best tow vehicle available?  2365  22 Started by  Surferjer
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I got a Jeep to trade plus cash and I'm looking for a truck in the range of 12-15K. It will be used to tow a trailer/car combo plus tires and tools weighing about 4700 pounds. It will go to a lot of local stuff plus long trips to Peru, Topeka, etc. Any suggestions Anything to stay away from I'm pretty green on this stuff, but it seems like a diesel might be best. I don't know what's reliable, get good mileage, or what would be considered 'excessive' mileage. Any and all help appreciated...

0 Replies and 666 Views airflow software for tow vehicle/trailer  666  0 Started by  ken_vt Does anyone know of any basic airflow analysis software...low cost or preferrably free, that can be used to tune the shape of a tow vehicle/trailer combination. We are towing with a fairly slippery (aerowise) car, and would like to experiment with trailer enhancements, like fender skirts, rounding edges, air scoops. ken_vt

2 Replies and 1281 Views CRX Towing?  1281  2 Started by  Seth53 I know this sounds a little crazy, but I want to tow my tires and a container that I can put race equipment in. Something like a Miata or S2000 uses. I run autocross events so I don't have a lot of stuff, but my new bike is going to take up a little too much room inside the car for everything else. Once I get my bike and overnight luggage for two people inside there isn't much room for tires. Has anybody tried this before or am I the only crazy one that wants to tow with a CRX If it has be...

0 Replies and 772 Views Anyone need a vehicle transported?  772  0 Started by  mageep I purchased a very nice 8.5 x 20 enclosed trailer a month ago. One small problem. It's in Houston Texas, and I live in Canton, Ohio. So I am headed south next weekend to take delivery of it and haul it north. I mention this because I know often there are folks (like myself) buying southern cars up north. If you're one of those folks, and you have a vehicle, I am willing to discuss transporting it to you for a fraction of what current shipping rates are ($1.45 - $1.85 a mile! Ouch!). Of course ...

4 Replies and 982 Views Question about battery wiring  982  4 Started by  JSirota Hi all, My enclosed trailer has a 12V light circuit wired up to the hitch connector (so the lights only work when the trailer is plugged into the truck.) It also has a generator with a starter battery. Can I simply connect the positive lead of the starter battery up to the same circuit as the 12V lights, so that the battery will charge when the truck is running, and the 12V lights will work when the truck isn't connected Or is it more complicated than that Tha...

6 Replies and 5679 Views Towing Capacity/CGVWR - Toyota Class C  5679  6 Started by  Primetime Glick Yes, even if it's 1.00 lbs, tell me if you have a good idea what these things could do. Don't ask me why, but I got interested in Class C motorhomes. Yes, I know for the same price you could get a big-block domestic van Class C. But if all I have is a small Mod machine to tow, I'd prefer the gas savings and smaller size... if I could get away with it. I was wondering what the towing/CGWR would roughly be for a Class C Toyota (a) 22r, and (b) 3.0L V6. I guess these were mainly made in the ...

9 Replies and 1942 Views Generator for trailer -- recommendations  1942  9 Started by  boxboy We currently have a Honda portable generator (EM5000SX) that is overkill on power and noise for our trailer. Not to mention I can't get it out (have to take the car out) when we are on the road if we want A/C. So, looking for something in the 3-4 Kw range that is quiet. Both Honda and Yamaha have very quiet portables in the 3Kw range, and we could probably put one of them behind the car for easy removal since they are small enough. However, I'm also interested in an RV type generator...

12 Replies and 1982 Views Towing Capacity  1982  12 Started by  DBurkhead I was wondering what, if anything, might be done to a vehicle to increase its towing capacity. Specifically, once I retire the Miata from daily driver duties, at some point I'll need to start towing it to events. Unless I actually buy a vehicle specifically for towing duty, the most likely car to give that task to would be my wife's Subaru Legacy L. However, it's only rated at 2000 lbs towing capacity.------------------David L. Burkheadmailto:dburkhuadcomcast.net'May I be just half the perso...

0 Replies and 4000 Views Used H & H Car Trailer for sale - Kansas City area  4000  0 Started by  S2kTas I am not the person that is selling this trailer. I ran into a guy here in the Kansas City area, that has a used H &H car trailer for sale. It is 22 foot long and 102' wide with a ramp and dovetail. Trailer is 2003 model and Red in color. The guy that owns it bought it new and only used it to move a few times. Don't think that a car has ever been in the trailer. If you are not familar with H&H trailers, they are one of the top of the line trailer builders, with their offices in Iowa. ht...

7 Replies and 4369 Views anyone rent the tow vehicle?  4369  7 Started by  c4racer2 Has anyone here rented instead of purchased a tow vehicle. I've been buying and driving tow vehicles for several years and have realized that I only make it to the track 3-6 times per year. A quick search shows several rental companies - Hertz, Enterprise, etc. that rent trucks like F150's and Excursions for ~$200 for a weekend including miles. Seems that going that route would be a whole lot cheaper than owning my own and paying the mpg penalty when I don't otherwise need a truck. Has anyon...
