I agree. I think the weights are going to be unimportant. It's needs something large for the stability.

Yes, you stop and think about it this TT is about as long as some semi trailers.

These types of trailers are primarily for the full timer who doesn't move around to much. Like say winters in the south and summers up north. It's more of a mobile home than it is your typical RV trailer. If you do want a good weekender with loads of space, look at a fifth wheel or motor coach.

Would renting a pickup be a possibility or do you want to own?

I doubt that you can rent a 1-ton (or 3/4) that it's approved to tow with.

And Thank You both for your service.

I like the Dodge diesel 6.7 3500 one ton but Ford or Chevy have models that will work. The diesel has power to spare and will last forever, the engine brake and tow haul mode will get you up the mountain easily as well as down it safely without touching your brakes for the most part. So, I suggest you put those items on your must have list for whatever truck model you go with.

cbauch,
I'm new here, first post. I just bought a '14 Villa Estate 394FKDS. My water heater is both electric and propane. The electric switch is located in the heater compartment on the heater itself.
