Just like Fireballsoca posted, the Tow Lites did not have all the bells and whistles. We purchased our Tow Lite 2005 27T in January of this year, replacing a 1999 21T, and the '05 is loaded. The outside of the trailer is labeled Tow Lite but when you step inside it has the look of a Classic, less the 6" in width. My storage space on the side of our house is 104", house to fence, so we have to stay with a Tow Lite.

The extra width of the Classic would be nice once camped, but how about when towing? Classic owners . . . ?

Default Towing a classic

The extra width of a classic doesn't bother us when towing. We have to keep looking back to make sure we have a trailer behind us. Tows very smooth.

Default A 95 Toilet! Are you kidding!

Dang, you are in possession of a rare factory slip up. Kind of like double stamping a coin! Hang on to that baby. It will be worth a
lot some day........( I have got to get some caffeine and soon!)

Luckydog, we have a 25-foot 2009 Hi-Lo Classic with a wide body. The factory in Ohio put the awning on our Hi-Lo before delivering it to us and, of course, that increased the width of the unit. As Sam said, we also have never had a problem towing the wide body Hi-Lo, except one time when we were a little nervous. We were on I-40 going and returning from a Hi-Lo Rally in Tennessee. Heading to and from Asheville, NC, there are a few narrow tunnels (which were built maybe back in the 1950s) with walls very close to the top edge of the Hi-Lo if you stay strictly in your lane. What we did was slightly ride the center lane with lights on and beep the horn once in a while to oncoming traffic. That convinced me that we would never take the Hi-Lo on the Blue Ridge Parkway because of all of the narrow tunnels built back in the 1940s. The extra width is great though when you are camped, especially with the tip out. What we've done is camp off the Parkway, unhook from the truck, and take the truck on the Parkway. Maybe what the company had in mind when making the Towlite and the 2010 "H" Model less wide was to make these campers more accessible to narrow roadways and historical areas and, at the same time, reduce the weight of the unit. Some states have denied access to wide body RVs in historical areas and their roads.

Thanks for your input Dee! That's something I hadn't considered (going through tight tunnels). We have similar tunnels here out west, such as this one on the Mt. Carmel Highway in Zion National Park. Good to hear the the larger width doesn't cause any problem as far as actual towing.

We had to go through that tunnel by driving on the centerline with traffic coming from the opposite direction stopped. I've forgotten the exact width limit, but our TowLite was considered to be too wide for 2-way traffic.

Yes, I had a similar experience going through that tunnel. It was very cool! At the time I owned a 22' Lazy Daze motorhome.
