From the first day I got it new, my popup has always been squeaking. If you listen to other campers coming in and out of a camping ground, most of them are squeaking like crazy. Popups, hybrids, travel trailers, 5th wheels. We all squeak!
If you are properly hitched and locked in, your popup...
Yeah, it was mainly about total towing weight only.
But I liked the explanation of where the trailer weight was distributed before/on top/behind the axle and the implications on the tongue weight and overall trailer behaviour.
So what are the lesson(s) to be learned here?

I found this great article explaining why in Europe the towing limits are much greater than here in North America.
You regularly see a Forester or Focus towing huge trailers on UK/Germany/France roads. And still the Forester in the US/Canada has 1,500lbs towing limit!
A great read...

With a 4500lbs towing capacity with a Pentastar V6, it should easily tow our 10' popup (1,500lbs) and will give us upgrade room for either a bigger popup, hybrid or TT.

Electric brakes will ensure everything is safe, though.
If you can, get your pup/TV weighed at a weighing station.
Getting our rig weighed eased our worries. Now we know we how much we can pack and how much wiggle room we have.
Nothing better than getting the...
I'm one of those "camping to disconnect".
- No radio/TV
- No cellphone (can be used for emergency call only)
- No tablet/laptop
- No handhelds/DSi/3DS
- No MP3/iPod
Nature has many ways to entertain us.
I understand those who might need it, but I don't want to pay for something I...
