You don't say if the trailer is a 5th or TT. That would make a big difference. Are they both SW? Does either of them have a towing package?

Maybe read it again. Is the toy hauler a 5th wheel or a TT? And how heavy is the toy hauler loaded? With this we may be able to help you.

The article,"Before You Buy - It's not rocket science" would be a good place to start. I think it may help you understand what to look for.

The article I mentioned above applies to all tow vehicles towing any trailer.
