    I deliver custom toy haulers nationwide for a dealer in Phoenix. I've seen alot of customers buying trailers and not having enough truck to tow it. I'm not only talking about weight rating but also vehicle size. Just because a vehicle is rated to tow a weight dosent mean it can do it safely. There is alot to consider when towing trailers. A travel trailer is like a rolling billboard and getting into crosswinds can throw around even the largest and heaviest tow vehicles. If you're close to the edge of your vehicles abilities it'll get you into trouble real quick. I always tell people who ask to go with the smallest and lightest trailer that will fit your needs. I also tell them to try and find people who are towing the same configuration, and don't just relie on the salesmans "it'll be fine".
