Yes, although my Tahoe is rated for 7900 lbs, it is a farce. It does OK on flat ground but struggles on inclines. I have no problems braking with the electric brakes and brake-box but my next truck will definitely be a diesel. The Tahoe has 150K miles so I won't get crap on a trade in so I'm gonna run it until it dies but then will get a diesel Pickup which will give me the option to upgrade to fifth wheel in the future. Gonna post those pics of the TV setup and wire for running sound through the built in speaker system.

Thanks! I have a 2005 Silverado crew cab. I plan on towing to Myrtle Beach this year from Indiana. I know that the truck will be working but I baby when I tow. Never go above 65 and I don't try to win races going uphill.

I posted on another thread that it looks like mine has a piece of plywood between the 2 layers in the swivel. Can one of you give me a depth measurement on that so I can compare with mine?

Tried out our new camper last week and the heat would turn on and run fine. It would shut off and after awhile when the camper would call for heat agian, it would turn on run and after a minute or two it would start a clicking noise up by the air conditioner. Anyone have a similar problem with a 14 wildwood 26tbss. Or know why this is happening?

I too have a 26TBSS. I pull it with a 2005 F150 5.4 Triton with 3.73 gears. Flat surfaces it is fine, when I hit the Pocono Mts it cries all the way up the inclines, drops into 2 gear and the rpms hit about 4000 tillI level out. Yes, the suction from all the gas being sucked into the engine creates a vortex to a different dimension.

One word.....Toyota!

I had a F150 super crew 5.4 triton and it would scream on hills pulling our old pop-up (12' Jayco).

If you've ever been to Ricketts Glen state park you probably know about "the hill".
My 5.7 sequoia pulls our family of 7 and our 26 TBSS up that hill, and anywhere else, with power to spare.

Probably overkill, but I pull mine with this.
