Question, what kind of vehicle (truck, van,suv) are you folks using to pull your travel trailers with?
Is there a rule of thumb for horse power per thousand pounds of trailer weight?
Gettin' the itch to do some traveling.

Your dealer or library has specs for total weight the truck can pull and tongue weight for bumper pulls. If you get a bumper pull, which really is a misnomer since the hitch is frame mounted under the bumper, I highly suggest a stabilizer hitch for sway control and safety.
