Trailer with Tow Rig Pics

I thought it might be interesting to post up pics of your trailer with your TV pics. This might help people concerned about what tow vehicle they need for their family and see what we are using and why and how it performs. For us, we had to think out of the box a little to get the TV that best suited our needs.

We have three kids and travel with two dogs so roominess inside the TV is top priority. We had our 2500 Suburban outfitted with a 2007 LBZ Duramax and 6 speed Allison Transmission. This truck pulls the 318 with little effort now and has plenty of room for the family.

Digging up memories. My first camper, first tow vehicle. 1992 Wilderness 32 ft, and 1999 F150 with a 4.6 V8... Yes, 4.6, not the 5.4 however that did come later in 2001.

Then my 2003 Expedition EB and my brand new 2005 Montana 330RKBS 35ft with 2 slides. Thought the world couldn't get better. Yes, still under on the TV, but not by power this time, more by weight. Pulled great though, used it until 2008 with 96K miles, and still was like new when traded.

Bought 2008 Silverado Duramax 2500 Crew Cab LTZ which for the life of me, I cannot find a pic of.

Finally, a 2011 Silverado Duramax 2500 Crew Cab LTZ with 2012 Sierra 365SAQ. Right on the border of being at weight (again) and probably would be better with a dually. Since baby #2 is on the way, there will be no dually in the very near future.

I wonder why they never offered the dmax in the burb for reasons just like yours. I have seen a lot of those conversions. A very good idea. I bet it works great for you and your family.

As for me I have a 05 Nissan Titan pulling a 2012 sandstorm 203slc. Fully loaded I weigh 6800lbs. My truck does well and it's just me and my wife right now but kids will be in the picture soon and right now I am pushing the limits on my truck. . My next truck will be a dodge with a cummins diesel. But I have to make my truck do the job for at least another year.

Didn't Ford offer a diesel option in their Excursion line for a few years?

To be honest, we've only had it out twice so far and I really haven't paid too much attention. I have read other posts that suggest there is a slight lean when the slide is out. I'll have to check it a little closer next time we set up. BTW, how does your Ford pull your trailer. We have a Silverado 1500 with a 5.3L and it is really a dog pulling this thing. Really hoping to upgrade our tow vehicle next spring to a HD with turbo diesel.
