Lance 2375 With a Tundra

Currently I'm towing a Komfort Resort 239B 5542 dry weight, 560 dry hitch weight. 27 feet long. My truck is a 2017 double cab 4x4 with 6.5 foot bed. Equipped to tow 10K, with a payload of 1320 pounds.
I have a standard WDH and have zero problems towing, braking, etc with this set up.
I am thinking about the following new set up: Lance 2375
Dry weight 5030 Dry hitch weight 600 pounds Overall length 28 feet,

Trailers seem very similar. Anyone see any problems with this choice?
Thank you in advance for your opinions and suggestions.

My thought is the aerodynamic front and low profile of the Lance it will be easier to tow. That is a nice floorplan. I like Lance trailers as the lower ceiling with be easier to heat.

I bet you can answer this question better than anyone on this forum. Your set ups are similar, I would think you would be okay, as long as you made sure the WDH was re-evaluated and you accommodate the slightly higher tongue weight when packing.

Will not tow the same at all.





It will be 200% better because you will be that much happier with the Lance.

Use gross weight for your decision since nobody camps in an empty trailer and they all are closer to gross than dry. Also the dry tongue weight is ridiculous since it is a brochure number designed to fool you into thinking it is light enough for your truck. Multiply gross weight by 13% to get a realistic tongue weight, and don't forget to add 100 pounds for the WD hitch itself.

I have a 16 Ram 5.7 with about the same towing capacity. I tow a 30 ft Winnie 6300 lbs with a WDH and have no problem. Back and forth from Michigan to Florida in the winter. That being said I wouldnít go a lb heavier without going to a 3/4 ton.
My opinion is youíll be fine. How do you like your Tundra? I wanted one for the reliability but had little time to shop. Iím happy with the Ram so far and hope itís loyal.
