Relating to Any Aspect of RVing, when & in relation to what could you say that

Recommended Posts

.... BIGGER is better?

 

For instance:  In relation to rear axles, a numerically bigger/higher axle ratio will tow a heavier trailer than a lower ratio number, such as 3.73 compared to 3.55 or 3.21.  So generally speaking, in this case one could say that bigger is better.


If you ever see me, simply pretend I am not there.

Most things are trade offs. Even your example of gear ratios has the downside of lower gas mileage, more noise from higher revs, etc.

 

But I’ll play along: my answer is Budget.

373 gears are the norm these days. Somewhat the sweet spot for towing and fuel economy.  Better say my opinion. 411s would be the tow gear but much needed fuel stops.  Gear ratio shouldn’t be a issue if towing with 1/2 -3/4 pickup.  All can tow the Ollie just fine.

Hmm. I'm usually in the opposite mode.. Smaller, fewer, less to tote, carry, clean and maintain.

I will say that our small trailers live really big on the outside. And, of course, bigger campsites are better...

No not necessarily. Depends on the TV and its engineering set-up/design. Some mfg.'s don't give you a choice in some vehicles - the powertrain is designed as a package.
