RE: Dolly Towing a 2020 Chevy Silverado

Quotes I have from several RV dealers for a tow bar, base plate, and supplemental braking system here are $5500 to $6000. Plus I would need a new base plate for new vehicles every 2 years (as my company changes my truck out every 2 years.

RE: Dolly Towing a 2020 Chevy Silverado

I’m pulling with a diesel pusher rated for 10,000lbs so I should be good there as the curb weight of my truck is only 5000lbs. The dolly gvwr is also 3,000lbs so again should be good for the front wheels of the truck up on the dolly. Just looking to see how to set the truck up to do this.

Dolly Towing a 2020 Chevy Silverado

Hi all I’m in the middle of deciding what to tow behind my Motorhome. I’m wondering if anyone has experience pulling a newer model 4wd pickup on a tow dolly? This is what I’m trying to do - I am looking at a tow dolly that has the capacity to tow my 2020 Chev Silverado 1500 4wd. The reason I want to go this way is that this truck is a work truck that I change out on a routine basis. I am a ~50-60km/yr driver for work so I mile up the trucks pretty quickly. I don’t want to have to reinvest $6,000 every 2 years to convert my truck to dighy towing. What would I have to do to make this work? Thanks.

RE: Road Trip! BC to California

On the other destinations topic I’m definitely up for ideas in within a closer distance if folks have ideas. Silver wood is a 5hr drive for us - that’s easily a weekend trip and we typically do that a couple times a year so still looking for something a bit farther abroad and trying to get an early start on Spring for the boys (6 and 10). They are accomplished travellers by road.

RE: Road Trip! BC to California

Thanks for all the feedback. I appreciate the views that “flying would be better” but there are a couple other reasons to consider for me. We bought the motorhome specifically because we want to do some long haul trips. Definitely see the perspective that this will be a long haul. We also have 3 dogs in our family that travel with us. Just for perspective I put 6.000kms on the bus in about 9 weeks this summer after we bought it so I’m not afraid of putting miles under me. If we ever win the lottery we will be cashing out of our house and full timing on the road in the bus! I definitely haven’t made up my mind on this particular trip, but really debating if this trip can be considered at the Mid-March time of year with weather and snow avoidance - and what routes would be the best for that. We may choose to fly for this reason, but if we don’t get the bus out for a long haul trip this spring we will definitely be doing it this summer. Canada and the US have too many amazing places to visit and we definitely want to experience them from the road, while trying to make the best use of my few weeks of vacation. Driving is a passion of mine - I love being behind the wheel and long hauls don’t scare me. Driving the bus in LA may change that though.

Road Trip! BC to California

Hi All I’m new to the forum and was hoping to get some advice! My family purchased our first Diesel Pusher (2009 Berkshire 390BH) this summer. We have been travel trailer RV-ers for over a decade but wanted to take it to the next level. Living in southeastern British Columbia, we are used to spending our summers hitting great RV destinations in BC, Alberta, and the northwestern US. Now that we have a bigger rig, we want to expand both our travels and our camping season. I’m strongly considering a Spring Break (mid-March 2020) 10-12 day road trip with my sons (aged 6 & 10h) down to Disneyland in California with the bus. Given that we live about an hour east of Cranbrook BC I know that winter weather is a risk. Thoughts on how to get south of the snow safely at this time of year? What recommended routes are available? Also any good RV park recommendations along said routes? Will RV parks be open? I’m thinking I can log about 800kms/day. Thanks in advance for the help!
