What Others Are Saying

"This is the best towing calc tool I've used so far." [sic] B. Pollock, Facebook

"This calculator makes it much more obvious and easy to understand just what we are doing. Thanks." Heartland RV Club member

"RV Tow Check App should be called the RV Sales BS Detector." [sic] RV forum member, 8Muddypaws

"I just had a tough time deciding which Ram 3500 CC 4x4 to choose. 68RFE or Aisin transmission. Short bed or long bed. SRW or DRW. I choose the long bed, DRW with Aisin. Using the calculator I am golden for towing my 15,500 GVWR 5th wheel. But, if I had chosen the 68RFE transmission, I would be right on the edge. The other options would have put me under." [sic] Heartland RV Club member

"I've decided after… punching my daughter's trucks numbers into the RV Tow Check app, there is "NO 1/2 ton 5th wheel" under the 6000 lbs GVWR, that her F150 should be able to safely tow!!! Dad is going to wise up and recommend she shop for a bumper pull." [sic] Heartland RV Club member.

"If I had this tool in 2008, I would have avoided a costly $15,000 mistake. I created RV Tow Check to save you from making a costly mistake." Dave Gray, creator of RV Tow Check

Full Description

RV Tow Check was created for buyers and dealers by an RV owner who experienced the frustrations of RV buying and matching up a tow vehicle with a trailer correctly. This app is a small price to pay considering it is capable of saving one from a very costly mistake.

RV Tow Check is the first "Before You Buy an RV" towing capacity calculator that conforms to manufacturers' weight safety and warranty warnings and complies with the SAE J2807 trailer weight rating (TWR) calculation methodology.

RV Tow Check answers the most often asked questions, "How much can my truck tow?" or "How much can my SUV tow?" or "How much can my motor coach tow?"

RV Tow Check can assist all RV buyers and dealers to ensure tow vehicles are properly matched to any type of towed vehicle.

RV Tow Check provides users with the choice of beginner or expert mode of operation. It is recommended that first-time app users start with the beginner mode and learn from the detailed instructions and pertinent details to become an expert user.

RV Tow Check simplifies the process of obtaining the realistic vehicle towing capacity for any vehicle towing a trailer, and it is as accurate as the weights that are entered into it.

RV Tow Check displays realistic vehicle towing capacity for a fifth wheel or gooseneck, and conventional trailers (bumper pull) simultaneously and provides instant results when selecting various kingpin or tongue weight percentages.

RV Tow Check requires a minimum of four inputs by the buyer or dealer. The required entries are gross combination weight rating (GCWR), gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), the gross vehicle weight (GVW), and trailer weight ratings (TWR) for fifth wheel, gooseneck and conventional trailers.

RV Tow Check users have the option to select a fifth wheel hitch if it is not installed in the truck.

RV Tow Check users may include any additional unscaled weight for cargo, aftermarket equipment, and passenger weight. The app does not assume everyone weighs 150 pounds as the manufacturers do.
