SURVEY OF SUSPENSION SYSTEMS ON VEHICLES TOWING TRAVEL TRAILERS II. VOLUME 15

Loading patterns, load capacities and consumer knowledge in these areas were determined for 2,400 vehicles consisting of automobiles towing travel trailers, travel trailers, motor homes, and pick-up trucks carrying slide-in campers. These data were compared to results from a previous survey in an effort to determine what improvements were made due to industry and government action. Vehicles were weighed as loaded for traveling and the suspension rating data was obtained from the vehicle manufacturers. This report deals with the vehicles towing trailers. Separate reports are available which cover travel trailers, motor homes, and pick-up trucks carrying slide-in campers.
