While pulling my 24' KZ with my 2013 Ecoboost crewcab I can step right out from a light ahead of traffic.

I believe in using the tool that does the job, not a tool that can do more; that isn't workwise. I assume a truck working within it's ratings will do the job intended and that has been my experience. Note that Can Am in Canada and it's customers report excellent results pulling large Airstreams with properly prepared cars and SUVs--Flexes, Chrysler 300s, Taurus SHOs etc. I think some guys like having bigger tools than they need and rationalize that want as a need.

Have you read up on what Can Am does and have an informed opinion? If not the cool-aid might be the dismissing of the possibility out of hand.

I guess some of you have never seen the movie, "The Long, Long Trailer" with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. They were pulling a massive house trailer..full of rocks... with a '53 Mercury flathead.
