Hi all! Iíve been camping on and off my whole life. Started with tent camping, moved to a popup, then a 21í tow behind. Hadnít camped for close to 10 years and decided to jump in with both feet
Iíve done much research on hitches, pinboxes etc. Talked to a bunch of people in the industry and not one person gave me the same info. So confused as to what hitch to buy and if my truck will tow the RV easily. So hereís what I have so far:
Towing with a 2017 Silverado 1500, 5.3. It is a short bed (5.5í) has 10 plys, (not sure that matters). I just bought a 2014 Springdale, box is 28í but overall length is 31í 3Ē and dry weight is 7400lbs. So far, I have a Reese Pro series 16k stationary hitch ordered along with a Sidewinder pinbox, and yes, it will fit the RV. So now for my question. Am I still going to have issues turning? Will I have issues pulling this RV? What if I take it out west?
Iím super excited to get back out there again, just donít want any major issues before we get started.
Any additional info is much appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
