The Easiest Towing Experience & Our 12 Favorite Tow Vehicles

The Easiest Towing Experience & Our 12 Favorite Tow Vehicles

If you are going to explore the national parks and amazing off-grid locations, you need an RV that is easy to tow and drive. Like you, we understand why towing or driving extremely large vehicles could seem scary and overwhelming. After all, you want to spend your leisure time exploring, not worrying. While this is absolutely the case with monstrous RVs and other towables like Airstreams, it is simply not true with a Road Chief. Towing a Bowlus Road Chief is truly a breeze. Our owners think so too. Read their testimonials for their first-hand experience.

Here are the reasons why the Road Chief is the easiest full-sized travel trailer to tow:

  1. Aerodynamics & Shape: The Road Chief has a truly aerodynamic shape meaning superb handling in crosswinds & when traversing mountains.
  2. Center of Gravity: The Road Chief has a low center of gravity which is important for general handling such as quick lane changes & driving in high winds.
  3. Lightweight: The Road Chief is so incredibly lightweight (up to 3,000 lbs lighter than comparable length travel trailers). It means that you can tow with almost any vehicle and that you’ll be able to accelerate & stop quickly as needed.
  4. Width: With the Road Chief you have a clear path of vision down both sides, making lane changes or pull-ins a breeze. The Bowlus Road Chief tracks directly behind your vehicle, so you don’t need extension mirrors, and there is no worry of not getting through narrow passages.
  5. Sustainability Friendly: Large behemoth RVs cannot be towed by electric vehicles and they make your gas mileage or range dismal. This is not the case with a Road Chief. In fact, our owners report getting over 30 mpg while towing with their Road Chief and up to 200 miles per charge with a Tesla X.
  6. Backing Up: Big RV’s can be stressful to back up and can leave you feeling embarrassed in front of the whole campsite. The Bowlus Road Chief is so easy to back up, getting into that perfect spot. It’s just that easy.
