RoamingRanger Posted July 27, 2020 Report Share Posted July 27, 2020 Hi, I'm looking for opinions from HDT owners regarding limitations they face utilizing HDT's as tow vehicles? Increased difficulties finding a campsite or campground due to length? How often do you have to park your HDT offsite in overflow? Limitations driving over bridges or through city streets due to weight? Limitations getting into State and National Parks? Difficulties navigating city streets or campgrounds with a 13' tall HDT (low bridges, narrow streets, low hanging trees etc.)? Assuming you pull a rather long trailer, do you avoid states with conservative maximum length towing laws? While researching, I was shocked to find 15 states that prohibit vehicles with a combined length greater than 65' (source: https://www.nexttruckonline.com/). I'm assuming the majority of HDT's with a 40' 5th Wheel would exceed 65' in length. How practical is it to use your HDT as an everyday driver (sightseeing, grocery getting, etc.)? Any additional limitations I'm not considering? Due to our family size (6 currently), we'll likely settle on a 36+ foot 5th wheel so I'm considering a HDT as our Tow Vehicle. Any input you can provide regarding limitations of using a HDT as a tow vehicle and a daily driver are greatly appreciated. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
