Rig Scenarios

This certainly doesn’t show all possible scenarios, just ones under consideration and even at that, some more, hmmm, potentially realistic than others.

Scenario Dogs RV Class (View) Toy Hauler Motorcycles Jeeps H-D Tow Vehicle
1 Yes Class A Yes Yes Toad n/a
2 Yes Class B No No No n/a
3 Yes Class C Yes Yes Toad n/a
4 Yes Class C No No Toad n/a
5 Yes Class C No Toad No n/a
6 Yes Travel Trailer No No as the Tow Vehicle n/a
7 Yes Pop-Up Trailer No No as the Tow Vehicle n/a
8 Yes Fifth Wheel or Gooseneck* Yes Yes Toad**,*** as the Tow Vehicle
9 Yes Fifth Wheel or Gooseneck* Yes Yes No as the Tow Vehicle
10 Yes Fifth Wheel or Gooseneck* No Toad** No as the Tow Vehicle
11 Yes Fifth Wheel or Gooseneck* No No Toad**,*** as the Tow Vehicle
12 Yes Fifth Wheel or Gooseneck* No No No as the Tow Vehicle

* Gooseneck probably preferred.

** This then falls into a “double or triple-towing” or “captive convoy” scenario, which makes travelling life more complex and even limits the states in which we could travel with that vehicle combination, as well limiting the places we could stay once we get wherever we can go.

*** Would we really even need/want to bring our Jeep along if we have the detachable truck available for use running around locally?

Towing Capacities

These are our potential tow vehicles or ones under contemplation. For more info on towing in general and some towing capacity, statistics see the Trailer Life Downloadable Guides to Tow Vehicles.
