I appologize skylarcamp, wasn't meaning to hijack this thread.

Could you please tell me what your tv payload capacity is? Just curious as to what 1/2 tons are rated at these days. I was also wondering if you use load range e tires.

Like I stated in my earlier post, your new 5'er looks really nice and that Titan looks to be setting good and level when hitched up.

skylarcamp, I don't think anyone is trying to crash the party......they are just concerned. I was impressed from the photos that the Titan was riding nice and level with the camper hooked up.......I have seen photos of heavy duty trucks sagging in the back when hooked up. The Reese Slider seems to work sweet, also. Load things up for camp ready, and run the combo over the scales to see what the Titan and the camper weighs in at, and then compare that with your GVWR and GCWR. I hope it works out great. Keep up the posts, and let us know for future questions regarding a 1/2 ton pulling a 5th wheeler so everyone can be better informed.

FWIW, my F150 barely won over the Titan when I was truck shopping in 2006.

Happy Camping !!!

I know no one was crashing my party, I'm just playing around with you guys. Every discussion on these forum is always informative and very helpful. It's just funny how things get started. As for the load capacity, it's a little over 1400lbs. The tires I'll have to check, I know they are rated for 2106lbs each at 35psi. The trailer sets pretty level. I did install a set of firestone airbags, but at the time of that picture I only had about 10 psi. I ended up at 20-25 psi and things are level with a really nice ride.

35 PSI tires are probably not the E rating, rather a nice smooth tire for comfort, not weight. (It's the same that I have currently, I plan to increase the rating when I purchase the next tires) Heavier capacity tires usually increase the PSI in increments to 50, 65, and 80 psi, which ultimately sacrifice the smooth ride for strength and load rating

You stated earlier that your towing experience with your current set up is good, so I wouldn't change anything. When it comes time to replace your tires or when towing it feels a little unstable, you might check into replacing the tires with "E" rated ones.

I like that answer. I really don't have the $$ to buy new tires right now. I just bought the ones on my truck a year ago. I'll work on replacing them within the next year with E rated. I just don't want to have a blow out on the highway until then.

hello Skylarcamp. I likethat unit. In fact so much so we just ordered one 2 weeks ago. The floor plan was just perfect for us. I wanted to ask if you got the sidewinder hitch option and if so, what do you think about it. I ordered the sidewinder for ours.
