Glad you made it and had the sense to slow down, don't rush and take it easy. I have a dually and my 5er is 21K, but I still take it slow and easy. If others want to pass me that is their choice. I'd rather get to my destination safe and in 1 piece than not at all. We, as RV'ers should not be in a rush.

Thank You!

My life is generally “wfo”, but I’m learning to slow down when prudent! We drove pretty late into the evening, to make yesterday’s trip a short one. We needed to get home, unload the camper and winterize the unit. Glad we did, we’re sitting @ 7 F right now....likely the high for today! The 7 day forecast shows all lows below zero. I’m ready for March to come in like a lamb! [emoticon] memtb

I question the person that would make this statement! Was it lack of skills or their location ( roads/cities/parking lots designed for small autos.

Skills “should” be easily accomplished....my 12 or 13 yo daughter’s first driving experience was on a gravel road in the Wyoming mountains with a Ford F 250, long bed, manual tranny, towing a 16 ft. flatbed trailer when going to cut firewood!

I guess you would be fine hauling a 20,000 lb 5er with your daughter and a 33/4 ton truck.

Well Ken, How was your oatmeal?

I wouldn’t be uncomfortable letting my daughter pull our 20K 5th wheel with “our” Ram 3500 SRW. However, I would prefer that she practice a bit before taking off on her own!

But......she was pretty good on a tricycle when very young! [emoticon] memtb

^^I'll add she did a super job towing a 16' flatbed, using a 250 with a stick, on the gravel, in Wyo mts. Kids in rural, or less populated areas, grew up quicker, and were more capable. Helps to have a good teacher too!

Quite true! The “good” teacher part may be questionable! [emoticon] memtb
