Sanibel 3600 Towing experience
I have a Sanibel 3600. Dog and I have been full timing in it for my job for the last two years straight. I love it. No major issues, stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Made a few changes here and there, but it's comfortable, spacious, and a great non conventional home. I've even had dates over and believe it or not, their fears of their date "living in a trailer" were relieved!
Only issue I've had is with the exception of a virgin tow from NH to western NY in a borrowed 3500 dually, I've never towed it. It's moved from NY to DC twice, but I had a hauling company do it for me. Surprisingly affordable and completely stress free. Regardless, it's time I got a hitch.
My truck is a 2012 F350 PSD, SRW, 4x4, SuperCab, short box. 3.55 rear end. I have 6k coils in the front and have added extra leafs in the back for a total of a 5 pack plus helper. I'm considering ride rite bags as well to keep the sag to a minimum. My tires are E rated tires. I'm not tuned but I have a tad bit more HP and torq coming in than stock. I've done the loaded calculations and know my weights and I'm within a safe margin. One single man traveling lives pretty light. My hitch will be an 18k Pullrite super glide, auto slider.
I'm aware of the cons of the srw and a short bed, and why a DRW is ideal for pulling big rig like this, but trading is not an option and I only tow a handful of times a year.(though they have the potential to be far, e.g. NH to Texas)
Do any Sanibel owners out there have any towing feedback/experience? Similar truck, hitches, ect? Would be greatly appreciated! I've seen others with my truck pulling my trailer out there in my travels, but never had a chance to find out how they are managing.
