  • Ratings Article Read Me First!

    This presentations in the Ratings series attempts to cover the tow-related limitations (set by the various component ratings) applicable to a towing a travel trailer, aka a “bumper pull” RV.

    Each presentation (and the slides within each presentation) build on the previously presented information. Subsequent information assumes the reader comprehends and can apply the previous concepts.

    While not "required", it's a good idea to start at the first presentation and work your way through each one to ensure each topic is understood.

    Each article has a link to a thread in the main Towing and Hitches channel where you can ask questions, suggest changes, or offer a counter opinion. (The author(s) make no claim to "knowing it all".)

    Forum moderators are not GD employees--we are volunteers and owners presumably just like yourself. Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, we have nothing to gain should you choose to purchase a product or engage a service we discuss on this forum.
