During New Years Eve First Night celebrations on Cape Cod, Crit and Diane made many townspeople VERY happy serving Hot chocolate, coffee and great donuts. They were set up next to the ice carver and it was a wonderful night.

Before I had my bird, I used to joke that they could turn it into a condo for me.
If I can figure how to post pics.....I will post one of them serving some happy customers.

The Wagon would be a very cool bunk house.

Default Donut wagon / Towing details

Crit guesses the Donut Wagon weights 15K empty.

Jason is pulling it no sweat with an SP36.

What I'd like to know is:

What's the tongue weight. Is the 15K estimate the most accurate number anybody's ever going to know re the total weight?

Is the chassis pulling capability / tongue capacity of a '75FC33' as much as that of a SP36; i.e. Is it likely a FC could pull a Donut Wagon equivalent without expiring on the pavement?

I ask because of my parallel line of inquiry about towing capacity at
http://www.wanderlodgeownersgroup.co...owing+capacity

"It ain't heavy... it's my Bird"

John in AZ with said '75FC33'
