Towing safely to your destination
Safety for your family and others on the road should be a top priority. In 2021 we had a guest that had an accident from unsafe towing practices. We recommend using a weight-distribution hitch (WDH) while towing our units. Will you be using a WDH on your trip? Read more in-depth information about WDH here.
Is weight the only consideration?
Most light-duty pickups will be able to tow our campers. Is max towing capacity the only number to consider? Different jargon could be confusing for new or inexperienced guests.
- Tongue weight
- Dry weight
- GVWR (Gross vehicle weight rating)
- GTW (Gross trailer weight)
Curt Manufacturing has an easy-to-understand article to help you get better familiar with towing terms.
Towing with a WDH
Watch our instructional video on attaching Trigger to a 2008 Chevy Tahoe. We are using a Fastway E2 Trunnion style WDH for this application. You may have a different style hitch head or spring bars.
Purchase this setup

Use the Fastway e2 setup required by your tongue weight. The first link is for trailers with a tongue weight of 600 pounds or less. You will need to purchase the correct size ball for your trailer. We use a Curt Echo brake controller. The Echo is Bluetooth and wireless, requiring no installation with your tow vehicle.
