Got the 3500 [Winnebago Travato] stuck in the mud today. Twice. Had a friend who pulled it out once using the hitch, and then pushed it from the rear, bumper to bumper.

Didn't see any recovery points on the frame, but then again it was raining, and in mud, so I didn't actually draw under there. Anyone know if there are any frame mounted recovery loops?

There's a tow hook on the passenger rear and a tow hook in the tool kit that screws into the passenger front bumper behind a small plastic panel.

Wondered what that tow hook was for in the jack box. It's a pretty nice jack, beats the sh*t out of my ridiculous F150 jack that didn't even reach the frame (looked like they put a regular car jack in a 4x4)

Thanks, I have been wondering where I could attach a tow strap should I need it.

Now that I have located the hook in the tool kit and where to attach it I wonder how much weight it can take. Should I get stuck can I expect it to handle the weight of my Promaster, a 136 high roof, about 6,000 lb.?
Anyone know.

I have pulled another Promaster out of sand up to the front axle. I would guess my rope was rated at 2500 lbs.

There are a few engineers on this forum, right? I googled an online calculator to figure this out and got overwhelmed pretty quickly. I'm betting it's around 5,000 lbs before the threads pull out...
