Anybody loaded and weighed a Fun Finder XTRA XT-245 toy hauler?
Has anyone who has a Cruiser RV Fun Finder XTRA XT-245 toy hauler ever actually loaded it with toys and camping necessities and then weighed the tow vehicle with the trailer attached and unattached? How much weight was transferred to the tow vehicle?
I am searching for a toy hauler with fiberglass siding that will allow sleeping in the front bed with two motorcycles still inside. I looked at a Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 19RR and a KZ MXT 20, but it looks like they won’t quite do it.
I have a ’13 F150 XLT SuperCrew Ecoboost 4x2 3.55 axle 145” wb 5.5’ bed with tow package (no Max Tow or HD payload options). I have added a spray in bed liner, tonneau cover, fire extinguisher and jumper cables. I am interested in an XT-245 toy hauler. There are none near me, but it looks like it might work as far as the space available.
GVWR 7100#, actual wt. with full tank and no driver 5540#, RGAWR 3850#, actual weight 2560#, yellow sticker payload 1607#, tow rating 9800#
Published trailer specs:
Length 27.5’, Dry wt. 4650# (saw one advertised at 5050# “as built”), Hitch wt. 765#, GVWR 7765#, Fresh Water 44 gal.
I will load it with up to two motorcycles weighing a total of 700 pounds behind the rear axle, generators, riding gear, tools, food, clothes, utensils and other junk. I am concerned about overloading the truck. I have 1560 pounds of total payload left to use and 1290 pounds of rear axle payload left to use. A driver and a passenger and a few incidentals could very well weigh 500 pounds. This leaves only 1060 pounds of total payload left for the trailer tongue weight.
I see on the forums that people are towing this trailer and others much heavier with “half ton” pickups. I know the Max Tow option adds 300# to the GVWR and about 180# to the payload of this truck, but that ship has already sailed.
Is there anybody out there who has actually loaded an XT-245 and weighed their rig?
