Last year with my old truck. I'll have to update when I get trailer out of storage this week.

Nice setup. I have just recently bought my '08 Tundra (Jan.) was towing with an '05 Yukon. Certainly like the more power I have with the Tundra

The Tundra is a great truck. I went a few steps forward and a couple backward to get into this old truck. I'm giving up 70hp and 11 years of truck age, but I'm getting more payload and no monthly payment and this old truck actually has 30,000 less miles than my Tundra did.

The Chevy even has fifth wheel hitch rails already installed so I may end up in a fiver. I just won't be going anywhere fast with this old 6 litre vortec engine, and there won't be a gas station I won't want to pay a visit too along the way.

Fingers crossed I made the right decision

The Trailer is a Wildwood Heritage Glen 312QBUD and I live in Canada so everything is expensive

We are really happy with it and if you have kids, it can be a great option with the back bedroom.

I have a similar truck towing a 5,000 lb TT. I see you are upgrading trucks and I'm just curious to know how yours towed the Windjammer.

My F250 had the camper package so it had the overload springs & rear sway bar. It pulled the Windjammer without breaking a sweat. That picture was fully loaded at about 8500lbs with almost a face cord of firewood in the bed with very little squat.
