How many times have you travelled in your RV with a vehicle in tow? The majority of camping enthusiasts would agree that having their own, personal vehicle on their camping trip for adventures, quick grocery runs, or emergencies is convenient. But, did you know that both the United States and Canada have Federal Regulations on weight limits for towing without supplemental brakes? Check out the chart below to see if these Federal Regulations apply to you!
