Choosing, Upgrading and Living With a Tow Vehicle

An RV Tow Vehicle is the rig you put in front if you're gonna haul a trailer. ;)

To be accurate, it can be said that your Motorhome becomes one too if you pull a toad or a trailer of some sort to carry your toys and tools.

This is a fairly sizeable part of this site. Likely it could be made into a
complete website of its own! Just what I need ~ another ~ iron to put in the fire! :)

Most often, when you hear someone say; "RV Trailer Toter" they're talking about a truck used to drag a fifth wheel or pull trailer.

That may be true, but it's still a far cry from the complete story. When it comes to trailer toters they range from two wheelers and tiny mini coopers to humongous diesel slurping beasts.

This section of my site will concentrate on the truck type since that's where my experience lays... and at least for the time being how I roll.

Whichever way you choose to go, you'll want to invest some time and dinero to set up your rig properly. Making that effort will add a lot of capacity and flexibility to your travels. At the same time it will ease your mind with its improved reliability and performance.

Here's a few articles to stimulate your towing imagination.
