Ok so I was looking a getting a toter (sportchassis) to tow are boat when we travel. But now I have started to look at super C and want some real world experience. I have seen they can tow up to 15k. We have a 37ft boat (43ft from trailer ball to prop) here are a few question
How do they tow?
Thoughts on towing a 43ft trailer that weighs 13k?
Does anyone launch a boat with there rig?
We are looking at doing some longer trips (1500-2000) trips towing thoughts?
Looking at gulfstream supernovas thoughts?
I haul heavy equipment for my business so I'm used to driving tractor trailers.

I have no experience with this, but I would advise due diligence on the weights.  Find the GVWR and GCWR for your selected rig.  Also check the weight rating of the receiver.

To tow a  13K trailer, the hitch weight will be at least 1300# (10% of 13K) so the receiver must be able to handle this.

Advertised tow rating may well be the GCWR minus the curb (dry, empty) weight of the coach.  Make sure you can carry all your stuff in the camper (likely 2000# or more) and still have room in the GCWR for that much trailer.
