You know they make "toy hualer" travel trailers, right? So you wouldn't have to hack up a normal one. .

Other than that, the truck and goose neck are both top notch choices!

These days there are several models out there with the Ford Triton V-10 or the Chevy 8.1. (or 8.2???) Anyway, I have the V-10. It pulls pretty good & runs down the hwy at 70 no problem. The problem is when getting in the mountains it drags down to 40-45 mph & is screaming to maintain the speed. If I was doing more out of state hauling in the mountains I'd have to do something diffrent.

I like the idea of a shorter class A motorhome with a diesel pusher and enclosed trailer for one, maybe two trail rigs.

This would work nicely too. I like the fact that you can probably fine one with 4x4. Easier to wrench on and find parts. Not bad for $40,000. Only 45K miles on a 2001 Dodge diesel. Can't tell for sure, but it's probably a 1 ton duelly.

This one would also get the job done with style.
