    RVers refer to both as a RV.

    Especially since a recreational vehicle is a motor home or trailer set up for living quarters.

    But I have always had a TT RV growing up and worked for Coachmen back in the day!

    Yes, I understand that. That's why I said "In my mind."

    The word vehicle to me implies the ability to move itself though, not something that requires another VEHICLE to tow it.

    Wind resistance plays a bigger factor than weight.





    Yep....

    I think I was 1100lbs over my GCVW, not the dry weight of the trailer... So 8800, not 8500 :lol:

    Either way, it pulled it like a champ. No sway, the only thing that really let you know it was there, was the really big hills.... :uhoh: :lol:

    8,800 is still 8,800. My pontoon might go 3,500 including the trailer.

    What did you get pulling the pontoon? 10-12?
