Tonka toy knows the laws and has plenty of experience. There is absolutely nothing wrong with his setup. I would be ecstatic if I had that for a wheeling vacation!

You do anything to the springs on the camper or can it handle the load fine?

2012 F350, 2012 28' rockwood 5th wheel, custom built 14' car hauler and all put together I'm 64' long just shy of the max length (65') in most states that allow recreational doubles
nice setup. FYI - law changed in April, you can now tow up to 75' in length in Michigan. My setup is at 65', wouldn't want to add another 10' but you can.

I hope you don't have more than one drivers licence... that would be illegal.

The hitch was put on before I bought my trailer, it's a class 3 Reese hitch and it's welded to the frame.

As for the springs on the trailer, I don't have any the axles are torsion axles and I'm only adding 650lbs to them. I built the yota hauler to only have 650lbs in tongue weight

Sorry, there I go again wording things incorrectly. The correct word would have been endorsement.

With that do you basically remove the speedo gauge and replace it with and over sized gas gauge? Awesome looking truck, needs a Detroit 453 diesel

Those engines sound sweet, but sadly they're rated about the same as the 6.2 I pulled out. This caddy easily doubles their #'s.

beatty, please tell me your not one of those douchbags that drives around ALL THE TIME with your mirrors flipped up like your towing some badass load, are you? Your redneck front plate leads me to believe that you do quite frequenty. Please prove me wrong.

Until you have to back up more than a few feet.....or have to get fuel and there isn't a truck stop near by....or a number of other things.

Its a nice setup, but it seems like a pita to deal with....especially if you are going to a location that you are not familiar with where you could inadvertently get yourself into a tight spot
