    Let me introduce, my name is Claude, I am a lover of the traveling trailer lifestyle to visit the beautiful places and spend quality time with my family in North America. During the winter, we stay in Cartagena, Colombia along the Caribbean sea to enjoy the hot weather, but when spring comes, we return to Canada for vacation and work.

    So, I just register on this website to find out the news and trends in the world of RV and camping as well as to provide accurate information about the trailers that are Prolite model built in Canada and thus give useful information to people who have problems with this type of trailer or seeking to understand better the entire product and services. I have direct contact with the manufacturer to make things happen quickly for the members of this forum.

    I am not here to promote this type of trailers, not for spamming, but only to be in relationship with members wishing direct responses and without distorting the facts. I will visit this forum every day to answer questions or to provide practical information about it.

    Thank you

    Welcome to the RVUSA Forum. Although I have never heard of the ProLite brand, we are always on the look-out for professional knowledge and someone who is willing and able to answer questions. Do you tow your trailer all the way from Canada to Columbia and back or do you have one in each place? That must be an interesting trip, if you tow both ways. Again, welcome and post back soon.:):)

    No, to pass Central America is tough and at Panama I would take the ferry to Cartagena. I stay in Canada with the trailer and maybe I will go to Mexico but with the narco problem at north... I fell bad.

    I had to go look at the Prolite web page. They make some small trailers, but list them (click on "Our Models")along with the recommended type of tow vehicles. One such model was spec'd at 1830 pounds and could be pulled by a compact car. I drive a 4x4 Hyundai Tucson with a V6, and the recommended towing is limited to 1000 pounds, and requires electric brakes on top of that.

    This begs me to finally ask the question that has been on my mind. Are the car/truck manufacturers being honest about how much weight the vehicle can actually tow, or are they low balling the specs so they can avoid paying for warranty issues whenever possible? Basically are they figuring they would have less costs if people actually stayed within the recommended towing limit as opposed to towing trailers the vehicle could actually handle? Then there is the insurance angle. Get into an accident and if you were towing something just slightly over the limit, will the insurance company refuse the claim? Is there some way the insurance company can give benefit to the car manufacturers for specifying a lower tow limit, if it will save them on claims later on?

    Good morning Claude,
    We are a couple looking to buy a RV A class the smallest and cheapest on the market. We would like it to be a diesel, preferably a cumming motor, with a u dinette. Do you think a Avanti by THOR would be a good choice ? Do you have a better suggestion. We hope to use it for a south and north america trip. We come from Montreal and speak french ... sorry for our bad english. Thank you from your response. at

    Kind regards
    André et Martine
