A recent Camping Life(Woodalls) article reviewed the 2008 Tango light-weight trailers by Pacific Coachworks out of Riverside, Calif.
The trailers “are turning heads for a number of good reasons. Floorplans that make good sense, top-flight appointments, and a high overall degree of functionality and utility have made Tango towables the talk of the town.”
“According to Pacific, the Tango 286RBSS trailer can be towed with a half-ton pickup or SUV. We suggest a weight-distributing device be used for this trailer if you do tow it with a half-ton vehicle, to spread some of that tongue weight out over the tow rig’s and trailer’s axles.”
