Yes it did happen to us.
It still does.
I tell them that it is a very light trailer for it's size and that the combo works pretty well for us.
All of the comments so far have been very positive.
I actully get more comments on the truck than I do the combo.

We have met a lot of nice folks becasue of it. It's kind of a conversation starter.

Yep. Regularly. In RV spots, gas station, rest areas, etc. Amazed that the Toyota Tundra pulls a 5th wheel. I enjoy it. Get to tell em bout the truck. 5.7L, 381 HP, 401 ft lbs of torque, largest disc brakes on half ton. Revolution hitch gets em every time. And the 11mpgs pulling too. They just scratch their heads with their chins dropped. Lol.

Get questioned a lot about how we tow a 5er with a full bed hard tonneau cover and with a 1500.

I enjoy the visits. All I had to do was a little research so I could avoid a truck that can't take to the drive-thru or fit n a parking garage. I even had to explain to the dealer why and how I could tow with a short bed truck. They didn't even know what a reese revolution was and this was in October, 2012

I don't know what a reese revolution is. We use a Super Glide for our short bed. It works great. Made in the U.S.A.

I'am guilty. I'am one of those guys that wander in to your campsite. I want a fifth wheel so bad. That I bought a new ford Ecoboost with max tow pkg.But I still think the fifth wheel pin weight is to much?Do you guys use any air bags or springs ect . I know this truck can pull it no problem I even have 1950lbs payload cap.I didn't buy a bigger truck because it is my everyday driver and I only tow a for short trips.

Take a look at the flagstaff 8528rkws, the pin weight is a little over 1,000 lbs. There is a similar model by rockwood too.

Yes, I tow with the Air Lift 5000 and Helwig max tow sway bar on the rear end. The frame, engine/trans and drive line are the same as a 3500. The bags give your frame a third point of support, helping the leaf springs. Stay with in the max weight of the truck with the coach empty. The added equipment will take care of the extra weight. Always weigh your rig before a trip. The coach pin weight can be reduced by loading the rear of the coach. CHECK YOUR TIRE LOAD RATINGS!!!
