Thinking about a 30WR

I currently have a 2005 26 ft Work and Play, looking at upgrading to a 30 WR. This trailer is quite a bit longer than my existing and a little heavier. I have a 2007 F250 King ranch with a 6.0 turbo diesel. Wondering how well this truck will pull the larger trailer. If you have a 30WR drop a line and let me know how it tows.

I have one. I love it, but I wish it was a bit lighter and gooseneck. It can push my 3/4 ton around more than I would prefer, and can be difficult to get around in tight spots.

I have a 2012 30WRS, (almost the same as a WR, but the S model has a dinning room slide out and is a little bit heavier) and I pull her with a 2011 F250 Lariat 4 door crew cab that's powered with Fords new 6.7 diesel with tall 3.31:1 gears. The truck is rated at 14K lbs towing, and I installed Firestone airbags with a wireless remote to keep her always leveled. Anyway the truck pulls the trailer just fine, I do feel the trailer back there, but no problems. I'd really recommend adding air bags to your truck, I can lift my rear end alittle going down the road and eliminate any sway to the point that I can and do run without my sway bars connected on my 15K Reese hitch.

My truck is a gasser and thus towing can be a bit slow, but I don't have sway problems. It doesn't sit my truck down in the back at all with the levelling bars installed. What I don't like is braking in a turn and feeling it push the back end of my truck sideways. This is going to be the same for any single rear wheel truck. The long rear overhang and 36' length off the bumper also make it difficult to maneuver in tight parking lots and small campgrounds.

Got the 30 WR

Picked up my new trailer 2 weeks ago, the F250 6.0 pulls it fine. As you said, i can feel it back there but no issues and lots of room in the net unit. Thanks for your input.
