I have noted that the Redwoods are capable of towing around 3000 lbs. behind the trailer. Do any of you have any experience with pulling a small vehicle or trailer behind your RW?

Thanks

Rick

Rick, l have towed my 17ft fishing boat many times behind my 36rl. The boat tracks really well I don't know it is even there. The boat trailer doesn't have brakes. My 36rl has a 21k pin box with a 25k 5th wheel hitch.Just make sure you are not exceeding your GVW of your tv. or yor pinbox. Check your States length limits with my boat Iam 75ft long , my state has 70ft lengh.I have never been stopped I have pulled to Ontario to KY. Good luck o

I pull my goldwing 1800 on a trailer probably 12 feet long and have a rear view camera it is rock solid back there.
Live by Niagara Falls Ontario.
Last year we traveled to California and this year we are in Florida no problems so far.
I pull with a 2011 Chev 3500 dually I do not think it would be a good thing to do this with a smaller truck.

The Redwood is rate at 3000 lbs so I think the Jeep Wrangler will be a bit much in weight. I am looking at attaching a Smart for two or one of the new Fiat's. both weigh in under 2000 lbs.

They probably limited the weight to 3000 lbs because of the extra pressure on the pin box which which is rated for 18000 lbs. The way that the hitch is welded in place it would hold much more.

The limits are 3000 lbs. trailer weight and 300 lbs. hitch weight.



The Lippert folks said at the RW rally last August that any modification to the frame voids the frame warranty.

Ya Lippert always says that. According to Lippert, you can't even put a 5th wheel on top because it would mean drilling holes in the frame.

You warranty is through Redwood, not Lippert. Redwood may cover things even though Lippert hides under a rock.
