I've been lusting after a toy hauler and a truck to tow it with for a decade or more.
I have the truck. A '12 F350 SRW short bed diesel.
By the numbers and taking into account a 50gal fuel tank and the weight of the 5th wheel and the tires I have on it :( my rear end will support another 3200lbs.
I'm going to be using it for work as well as play so I need a high load capacity. Most of the toy haulers I've looked at have very low capacity, in the 3-4000lb range.
Then I discovered the 375AMP by Forest River. Great layout, fairly light and nearly 8000lbs of capacity. I think we have a winner.
True, fully loaded this would exceed the capacity of my truck, but having that reserve, the low pin weight and who's to say if I need another truck in the future anyway. [moderator edit]
So, let's hear it. The good, the bad and the ugly. And any other trailers I ought to be looking at as well.
Thanks in advance.
