Our New Trailer

We downsized from a 42 foot diesel rig with 4 slides, and are now looking forward to being able to go to places we couldn't get into prior to this. We have traveled from Tennessee through AL, LA, NM, AZ, CA, NV, OR, WA, ID, WY, SD, KY, IL, OK, and VA, and look forward to being able to stay in prior restricted places due to the size of our previous rig. Yay!! LOVE this new trailer with 3 huge slides!

It really pulled great on flat land and even slight grades. The trailer wasn't overloaded, and that's the key. However, because we had just traded our RV for this trailer, our TRUCK was overloaded, so when we headed up the mountain where we live, it was slow going. Our truck has a 5.3 engine, and for mostly flat terrain, or even slight inclines, it's not bad, but if you plan to go into the mountains, then I'd go to a 2500.

We're already considering going with a bigger, most likely diesel, 2500. This trailer is rated for half ton, but my husband recommends going with a larger motor. Our 1500 5.3 is supposed to be rated for 10,400. The max on this trailer is 8860 (GVWR), and the gas mileage just wasn't what he hoped it would be (averaged around 10). Again, much of that could have been due to the extra weight in the bed of the truck, which would normally not be the case. I'll check back in after we've pulled it without the truck bed loaded.
