The thread is legit as far as I can tell. We will leave it open at this time.

Hokie, I think Chevy asked the question because you deleted one reply due to "spam". In searching FAQs I did not come up with an accurate definition of spam. This thread may not be the place for it, but, an explanation of spam might help us all. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

I was wondering if somebody else used his computer and posted that. If I saw it on one of my websites, I would delete it as spam as well.

Spam may not have been the correct terminology in this case but he posted information on his trailer with several links to advertising sites placed within the message.

Spammers are generally those that join and post only messages to buy shoes or pharmaceuticals or jewelry or watches, etc. and have no interest at all in the forum.

That's true. So he was just trying to tell everyone what his rv was and some ads got mixed up in there. He copied and pasted his post. I hope he comes back and fixes it.

If it's a T34fbsp then it weighs 10,000 lbs dry and has a 16,400 lb GVWR. The hitch weight is 1200 lbs dry and will go up from there.

You really need to get it weighed, loaded and ready to camp so you'll know what you're dealing with real world.

However on a lifted 2500 with 35's you're overloaded.

I've been reading this thread with interest. The only Sierra TT (bumper pull) I could find on Forest River website that is 38' long (38' 8" to be exact) had a empty weight of 9550 pounds, and a GVWR of over 11,000. The hitch weight alone was 1,300 pounds. I'm afraid you have waaaay too much trailer for your truck. And as the others have pointed out, add a lift and big fat tires, and you have a rolling nightmare (as you've found out). I'm not even sure how you manage to get an equalizing system hooked up! I would love to see a picture of this rig hooked up and ready to roll. I think this would do a lot to help us help you. You may or may not be within the GVWR of your truck, but I think you have too many things working against you.

if you have a 07 Duramax , You have a Great truck to pull it with, But I would have to agree with the Lift, That is your problem, I have a 04 Duramax long bed clubcab, and pull a 34' 5er, I had to install air bags also to keep the Bounce down..

I don't know what this dude posted spam wise, but I doubt he'll ever be back.

That being said, lifted trucks can tow but it takes the right tire. I doubt his are it.

I would bet money on changing out the tires to a more capable tire of the task even if larger would cure the problem.
