I was fine with it at first and now i am reading too many posts that say it may be too much. Just wondering if anyone could steer me in the right direction. Will i be OK pulling this trailer with my truck? It says its rated for about 8800 but with loading it up with supplies i might be pushing it. Should i get the weight distribution bars and stabilizer bars from the dealer?
I had a 27' bhs revere and I pulled it with a 1500, however if your truck is rated for 8800, I wouldn't be towing the Shasta with it. You'll be pushing it and working that truck a lot. IMHO I think that camper is heavier then the sticker says, I know pull a 32' prime time tracer and my truck tows it 10x's better and it has a little heavier GVW.
As for a WDH yes you will need one, bags won't help to pull more weight they'll help your ride and help to level you out a bit.
Others will post but I wouldn't tow that camper with that truck
