    Hi.
    Totally new to the RV world.
    I race a car and need a decent size Rv to tow my car and trailer.
    I have seen a Gulf Stream 22ft Ultra for salke and am interested in buying it.
    Does anyone have any thoughts about that particular model?
    I am limited to size by wher I live and the practicality of parking etc.
    Most of the time I am by myself and dont need a big RV.

    Wopuld appreciate any help.
    Thanks
    Paul

    Hi Paul welcome to the forum, you need to find out what weight the m/h can tow? so as to stay within the law, and not make your insurace void should you have an accident. Tony

    :welcome:...can't help sorry, I'm at the other end of the size scale to a RV. In fact, my van might be smaller than the car you're trying to tow!

    Nightmares RV

    Well, mentioning no names I went to see this RV. It was not really very good at all considering the advertising blurb. The main thing was that when I asked to test drive it I was told that was impossible. I asked the chap if he would buy a car without a test drive and he said 'Yes of course'! He said I would have to commit to buy and then he would drive me around in it.:Angry:
    Well as you might have guessed I walked away immediately.
    The company in question is in the 'Oxford' area. The title might give a clue.

    I don't know if anyone has had any other experiences like that but it has put me off. !

    I'm probably going to buy a Chevy day van as it will be quite adequate for my needs.
    Thanks for all your welcome messages by the way.:thumb:
    Regards
    Paul

    Hi Paul and welcome

    Chevy dayvan is a good choice:thumb: , we have one that we use to tow our trade trailer , we use a bulldog 400 stabiliser to help prevent snaking .Our dayvan is a motorhome and we stay in it for 5 days at a time with our 4 dogs :Smile:( we do have a drive away awning which makes a helluva difference )

    Towing a dayvan.

    Hi Chris, Thanks for the reply.
    I had approached and outfit called 'Towequipe' as they said that they supply tow hitches for all vehicles.
    I told them it was a 1994 Chevy Dayvan and they asked me if it was an import. Did they think they made up in Birmingham??
    I was then told that I would have to get one from the US.
    Surely someone must have something suitable.

    Any help appreciated.
    Thanks

    Paul
