Griz, thanks for the perspective from someone who is currently towing a similar rig as I plan to. Since I have airbags also and will be hauling quads like you we'd be about the same. I think I'd have a problem going camping without water though. Sounds like I can load about as heavy as I want at the rear which is the opposite of the bumper trailers. And I know what you mean about towing a bumper trailer down steep hills, that's why I really want to step into a 5ver. Thanks for the info and thanks for your service, stay safe.

MaxAZ I know what you mean about camping with out water. I have 2 teenage daughters and the wife. They all wash their hair about 5 times a day and invite their friends and relatives to use our shower because I'm the one with the most water to use, 150 gal! What I meant by towing without water is that we California campers seam to all help each other find water close to the destination and pull empty the 3-4 hours then fill up for the last hour. Sometimes we don't have that option and you just have to fill up and go but for the most part we head out empty and it tows so much nicer without 1200 pounds of water forward of the axles. Of course I have moded the plumbing of the two 75 gal tanks so I can fill either one or both. That way when I can fill the rear tank only, 75 gal closest to the axle and it makes a big difference.
