26' Toy Hauler - Audio Video upgrades 2015 RAGE'N X Install & Mods - Turned the ramp into a patio! Page 11


Recommended Posts

took the wife and my oldest son to see it today...again, i don't get it till Wednesday, so the best i can do is drive over and look at it LOL. Anyhow, here are a few more pics...with the rear down and the bunk beds lowered. Those 2 rear beds move up and down automatically to make room for the RZR. The bottom one can also be propped up to be another couch.

It's safe to say the wife is SUPER excited! so am I!

I have been wanting one of these for YEARS! I have never had anything better than a tent from the local sporting goods store so this is a MAJOR upgrade for us! I would have gotten one sooner but i was

Make sure to do a lot of research on towing a big load like that. Even though you may be below the towing limit, I'd be willing to bet that you are quite above the cargo payload limit when you get fully loaded up. There will be a sticker inside the driver's door frame that will list the cargo load limit. That weight includes your weight beyond 150 lbs, your passengers, fuel, any cargo (coolers, food, etc) and the weight of your trailer on the rear of the truck (tongue weight). Usually toy haulers put about 12 to 15% of their weight on the tongue, so at your 9,000 lb suggested weight of the trailer your looking at a tongue weight between 1,080 and 1,350 lbs. I'll guess that your sticker has a number around 1600 lbs , which leaves you with a cargo capacity of 520 lbs on the high side and 250 lbs on the low side once you subtract your trailer weight. Now you see why a lot of first time trailer owners step up to 3/4 and 1 ton trucks not long after buying their trailer. You always end up with too much trailer.

Any towing website or forum will have all the information I'm talking about in way better detail. It's good stuff to know.

you must not know about the Eco-boost. It's a towing machine. 9,000 suggested trailer weight? my truck is rated to tow 11,200. I don't plan on filling up the 100 gallon water tank or the 40 gallon fuel tank until i get close to where i am going. That will help. I also am not going to pack it to the brim with heavy stuff. Other than the RZR of course.

thanks for the advice bro but i already have all this fully under control.

I know all about the F-150 ecoboosts, got one myself. A '14 long bed crew cab. I checked out the post where you posted up your window sticker, I don't see the max tow package listed anywhere on there. Without it, you're stuck in 9,600 lb towing land. Just be really careful, you will be technically overloading the rear axle and suspension with the tongue weight of the trailer and your cargo (Passengers, Fuel for truck, etc). Even with my trailer that weighs 5,700 empty and about 7,000 loaded can be a handful in the wind or rough roads. You're going to be quite a bit above that, so as I say be real careful.

I would make a run through the truck scales and see what your rig weighs empty and then when you pick up the trailer run through one more time. The scales will weigh all of your axles (front, rear and trailer) and you can see just how much weight your trailer puts on the rear axle, but also how much your truck-trailer combo weighs. Go one more time once you've loaded down the trailer and now you know how much the trailer weighs loaded. I'd bet you are at least 500 lbs over on the rear axle, once you get the Rzr loaded in and all of your junk for the trip. You might try to load the Rzr as far back in the "garage" as possible which will shift a little weight off the rear axle.

Just be safe and don't be surprised if you end up moving up to an F-250 after a while. A trailer that size has 3/4 ton truck written all over it. B)

Nice trailer Steve. I just got a 32' travel trailer last month. There are two things I'd advise, as a new trailer owner:

1 - Go to Camping World/Village RV, and get yourself an automatic tongue jack. WORTH IT'S WEIGHT IN GOLD!!!! I didn't think I needed one, need is subjective I guess, but after using it a few times, it makes things so much easier. Rather than to stand there and crank and crank and crank.

2 - Don't be a jackass like me and miss-judge the ass end length. That was a $500 oops the second day I had it. But really more than that, if you don't have a sway hitch, really good Idea to get one.

That's all. Dig the leather. Wish we'd have gotten leather, but this one we couldn't pass up for the price and that was one of the things we compromised on.

Anyway, that's all. Enjoy it! Congrats!

Sounds like a group camping trip is in order. Ours is a little too heavy for the sand, but we are down for anywhere else. You know how mama and I like to party ;)

Designing, building, and shipping boxes. Yahoo IM - kingsuv00If the listening level is too loud, please inform the driver, so he can promptly pull over, and let you out.

not many cars can get me to pluggin my ears but this one.......damn. I mean the first minute is ok but that thing just really starts digging deeper and deeper in your earhole till you cant stand it no more. Seems like it does it with relative ease....16 12's on 8 amps.........gotta love it. :)
