Smitty says :  Yes towing with 95s is good MoJo.  I am switching to 110
this time for a couple of reasons.  The frontal area of the new camper is
 worse than a barn door and I can use the power.  Development of heat
disposal has reached the point I feel I can deal with the 110.  Also I am
using a Safeguard now which will help me deal with the occasional pinging
problem.  And I had a pair of good 110 heads on the shelf and no 95s.  I
know I said at one time I wouldn't trade a 95 for all the 110s in the
country.  But we evolve.
