While researching this subject for quite some time now, as I look for a TH that works for my family, I've run across enough people who have tried to tell me that a short bed/toy hauler combination just wont work.

Good Idea,

So for the computer impaired(me)....step by step how does one post pictures here. Mine are stored in Picasa. I know how to email them and that is the extent of my knowledge.

Thank you,

bob

Don't have any pictures hooked up but this was our first trip after we bought the camper way back in 2006 or 07. 2005 Chevy Duramax 2500 HD shortbed with Reese 18K sliding hitch. Only used the hitch twice to turn tight. Just traded her in on a Jayco Super C....

I have a 2012 F-350 SRW Powerstroke crew cab short bed. Just bought s 2007 Raptor 3600RL because it is a lighter toy hauler with half garage (11,800 dry) and it tows beautifully with a Reese Elite hitch. Got almost 12 mpg towing from NC to RI. Only thing I am disappointed with is the height of my truck bed. A couple inches shorter would give me more room to adjust and level the trailer.

Exactly right. Heartland bought the rights to the Titanium front end after they went out of business. They make this style in three different lines. Cyclone has two toyhaulers with it, Road Warrior has one toyhauler with it, and Big Horn has two regular 5vers with it. Because of the design, it's nose heavy at about 3k on the pin but my F350 sits level with it hooked up without needing air bags. We love it because you don't need a slider hitch like most 5vers in combination with a short bed!

Beautiful setup. I like the design of the Titanium because it makes use of the space above the truck cab.

Nice trailer but it seems close to the truck. You dont have cab trailer clearance issues?

That is the beauty of the Pullrite hitch... I was scared at first but just as you turn the hitch slides back... Worth every penny if you ask me....
