Boy you're sure correct Lyle, we got 'bit' with the toy hauler we purchased. It is a little on the heavy side for our current truck, for sure. We won't be making that mistake again. We're ordering a Ford Dually this week as soon as we can get to the dealer. The payload is plenty for the hitch weight of this trailer. Hitch weight is "estimated" at 2150, I'd bet it's a little more than that. The dually 4x4 crew cab with diesel has cargo capacity of 3900-4900 lbs depending on gearing and added options. Trailer max weight is around 16k, tow capacity for the truck is 31k to 34k depending upon gearing and options. We've done our homework. But telling folks to do their homework cannot be stressed enough for sure, so I appreciate your reminding me!
Make sure that whatever truck you get has the payload to carry the FW. It's not about towing, it's about carrying...
