Beautiful rig. How does your 43' Diplomat tow the trailer? Cummins 425 ISL?

How long is your trailer?

Mike.

Thinking about pulling a trailer,not sure how long to get . What does every one haul inside? Seen all the pictures from outside how about some inside shots. Would like to bring toad plus golf cart plus stuff. What to do if you have to disconnect ? How to move trailer around if no pull through sites? Thank you all for any reply.

We pulled a 28' stacker with mother's Altima on the hoist, the scooter and most of the spare parts for the race car and motor home in the upper attic.
On the floor we had a 240" long rear engine dragster, golf cart, new Trailer Toad we displayed at races, two 8 x 20 outside mats for under the awning of coach and one for race car. 20 gallons of race fuel and 15 gallons of diesel. Upper cabinets in front for small parts, racks along both walls for tie downs, lawn chairs, etc. 18,350 lbs gross weight. We went all over the Country with a pretty weak 6.4 (I think that's the size) emissions Cummins and the lighter duty 2150 Allison. It got great mileage but was pretty weak on any long grades. I wasn't racing other motor homes so it never bothered me, that's why they have XM Radio, right?

We didn't do a lot of campground camping, it was usually three or four days a week at the drag strip then a couple Wal-Marts on the way to the next race. When we were lucky enough to "plug-in" we found every campground very accommodating about the trailer. We usually made reservations and told them what I was arriving with, I asked if they had a way to either store the trailer in a secure place or if they had a spot I could get in. Several times they used their "campground pickup truck" to back the trailer into a spot that was not attainable with a 38' coach.

If nothing else, it made for a good way to meet people as the full-timers wanted to watch "how in the heck you getting that rig in there?"

I attached a photos of a customer's "different approach" to his towing a trailer with his new Trailer Toad assisting his pickup with the tongue weight..

The 3500HD will handle 1500 tongue weight and 14,000 gross weight. I don't think you need the 5000SD.
The one advantage of the 5000SD, if you run some serious miles are the wheel bearings are much larger because that model has a 6000-lb Alco-Axis torsion axle and is just more durable as far as rolling more miles between wheel bearing service.

If you have any questions or need to ask some questions just give me a call or drop me an email at jok@trailertoad.com

Maybe I will see some of you at one of the World famous Wal-Mart RV Resorts some night and we can share a few adult beverages ;-)

Some nice rigs here. What are you paying to get the trailer painted to match the coach? I am looking at an enclosed trailer and want to do this.
