Determining how much weight your vehicle can tow is the primary factor in deciding what RV to buy. Whether you own a mid-sized SUV or a duly pick up truck, unless you’re planning to buy a new truck to fit your RV, it’s important to know what your limitations are with your existing vehicle. Pulling too much weight puts stress on your tow vehicle’s engine and transmission. On the other hand, you want an RV that’s large enough to fit all your travel companions comfortably.
Here at Explore USA RV we want to make sure you are confident in your purchase. That is why we are happy to provide an accurate, up to date Tow Guide showing the weight rating of various tow vehicles available on the market from 1999-2016. This way, you are able to choose just the right RV to suit your vehicle quickly and easily. Looking for a light weight camper that your minivan can tow?
