Towing an Airstream

Announcing PTX Ontario

PTX: Performance Towing Experience

Imagine: The opportunity to test your Airstream’s performance—emergency stops, slalom turns, acceleration runs, emergency lane changes and more. Now, for the first time ever, you can!

Take your Airstream to the limit at the only on-track towing event in North America at the Performance Towing Experience (PTX) in Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada, July 14-19, 2015.

At PTX you’ll improve your towing skills at the Grand Bend Motorplex, test your Airstream (or one supplied by event sponsor Can-Am RV ) under controlled conditions on road and track courses, optimize your hitch or tow vehicle, and compare towing combinations. Can-Am experts will provide hitch inspection and consultation, and classroom sessions on towing, hitch optimization, safe driving and other Airstream topics will be offered.

This is a power-charged driving event that no one in the RV realm has ever attempted! ‘Streamers, PTX is your first chance to actually feel how a properly rigged Airstream performs at speed. Prospective owners, you’ll want to be there too; you’ll notice a dramatic improvement in Airstream handling from your average “white box”.

PTX is brought to you by R&B Events, so expect entertainment, catered food, daily happy hours with prizes, and other fun perks like discount admission to racing events and activities for non-drivers. (The lovely sandy Lake Huron beach is only three minutes from the Motorplex.)

Save the date—July 14-19, 2015—and watch for registration details in future issues of Outside Interests and on the Facebook page and at
