"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."

"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

The morning after Memorial Day 2017, I became aware of a horrific tragedy in Lincoln County, Kentucky. It was caused by a travel trailer becoming disconnected from a truck. The trailer then moved into the opposite lane and met head-on into an SUV. The SUV driver was killed, and six-month-old Colt Tuff Shaffer was severely injured. By Thursday morning I learned that Colt was not going to make it and he succumbed to his injuries a little while later.
I cannot ever relate to what the family has endured during this time. However, this tragedy hit me with much sorrow, sadness, and anger. Out of my anger, I created a new page entitled, How to Properly Hook Up Your Conventional Trailer. A few days later I felt a strong urge to do more. Therefore, during the month of June, I decided to sacrifice $1 dollar from the sale of each RV Tow Check App for iOS devices to the GoFundMe account set up for Colt.
