I currently tow a Venture 34, which replaced a Jupiter 31, which replaced a Stamas 29, which replaced a Parker 25. Since I have been going up a few feet at a time, I have not even noticed the change in the towing. But the basic rules still apply.

The truck must be rated for the task and trailer must be equipped with very good brakes. I'm very happy with the electric over hydraulics and Kodiak brakes. The system works well enough that the combo stops better than the truck alone. There are some inconveniences in towing 30 plus feet of trailer around, but the truck and trailer go a lot farther on a gallon of fuel than the boat does, and the pleasure of having a boat that will handle bigger water never goes away.
