yup, my dad drove 1000 some miles towing one trying to go 65. i say trying cuz the aerostar van going up any slight grade would bog down bad towing that full trailer.
it is for thier butts.
if youve never towed a trailer especially a loaded one, brake way early and whatever you do do not swerve for any reason. also dont be one of those dumb aholes that pull out in front of you and apparently forget they have a trailer as you almost cream it...
Also take your turns wide, look further ahead than you normally do, be aware of the effect of tongue weight on your vehicle, be aware of trailer sway and what you can do about it, etc...the list goes on forever, those are what I remember off the top of my head. Do it enough and it all becomes second-nature.
It's only their 5x8 trailer. It's not the 6x12 or anything. I'm getting rid of some furniture and my XBR400 so I won't have a 40" CRT HDTV I have to make room for. I love the picture, it's a breathtakingly beautiful tv to watch (makes LCD tvs look like garbage) but I don't want to haul a 400# tv with me.
