Vengeance 25V

I put a down payment on the Vengeance 25V Toyhauler today. Does anyone have any advise on this unit? We rode the Harley to the dealership today and loaded the bike to see how it fit. I'm new to trailering and this is my first RV. I will be pulling the unit with an 2010 Ford F150 Platnium with 5.4 with 3.73 rear.
Thank you!

What does the Hog weigh?
You will need to add that weight to the weight of the TT.
Then you will need to know what your gear is gonna weigh.

And welcome to FRF from SW Idaho.

My bike is an CVO Road Glide about 1000 pounds.

That would be it. The yellow tag on the dorr and on the front left side indicated that the dry weight was 5860. The General Manager at the dealership told me that my truck could pull the unit with no issues. If there was issues I could bring the unit back and he would give my money back.

Be sure and get it in writing?

I want to make sure this is the toy hauler I want. I've been looking at the Shockwave also. A little more money but it looks really nice. When I loaded my bike in the back of the vengenace, it took up the entired back. Not much room to more around.

Will the tie downs be strong enough to hold?

Yes. The hold downs appear to be mounted to the frame.

It's very common for the dealer to tell you that. It happened to me too. I ended up buying a bigger truck.
