clutchd - I have a 2012 Tundra with the 5.7, but I had a 2003 Sequoia with the 4.7 V8 when I bought my 19RR. Both pulled it fine, however as you would expect the 5.7 in the Tundra does it with more ease.

The 19RR dry is a little over 4100 lbs, but by the time you put a decent sized motorcycle in it and some gear, I am sure it is over 5000 (probably not by much depending on the bike and what you pack). A well balanced trailer always keeps about 10% of the trailer weight on the hitch and again with a toy hauler, you could throw this off if not loaded well. You should plan on no less than 5000 lbs trailer and 500 lbs tongue weight at a minimum for a 19RR.

As far as picking a tow vehicle for a 19RR, some of the mid-sized, V6 SUV's & pickups are rated at 5000 lb's and could barely do it (they would work hard, but I had an old 4-Runner that I pulled other trailers with and it never let me down). If you are also considering a 21RR, I would definitely get something with a V8, and rated more for the 6500 lbs that many full size SUV's or a few midsize SUV's with V8's are rated for. Any half ton pickup and you would be fine with the 19RR or the 21RR.

Spare tire mount

My 19rr didn't have a spare so I ordered one from e-trailer, I needed to spend more to get free shipping so I got a swing down tire mount for $4.00 more than the shipping cost. I had to alter it a bit but it mounted easily on the rear bumper.

Thanks. I have a one ton dually. I normally pull goosenecks and haven't pulled a bumper pull other than a small 10 foot enclosed motorcycle trailer. I was worried more about the tonque weight and I have heard many stories even from close friends how off the weights are

Tounge jack

This spring I replaced my part time working LCI tounge jack with an atwood 3500# jack. Works great and is a lot faster. Most jacks are 18" the Atwood lifts 19" and you can buy them that lift higher. I always put a 6"x6" block under the jack, only once did I have to remove it to get the trailer level. I also like the fact that I can open my tailgate while hitched up, couldn't do that with the lci.

I wonder what bumper pull RV a 1 ton dully would not pull? That truck would pull a 19RR like a Volkswagen bug pulling a radio flyer.

My concern was needed a weight distribution hitch. Do not have one and didn't know if I'd need one due to tongue weight. Dealers all say you need to have one so I asked people who have the trailer

Oneeye posted his version of securing his motorcycle, I too used the HF wheel chock but used a plywood base instead of welding a bar to the chalk. I cut holes for the tie downs and he wheel chock footings first modification was to add heavy duty tile under the footings as the floor was showing some wear.

Took the 21RR in for some work yesterday. The shop installed a Best Choice Products power tongue jack and adjusted my Reese hitch. It seems the hitch was too low, causing too much tongue weight and also contributing to the steep ramp angle. I came up with a way to tie down the wheel chock that I'm going to test out and will post pics later.

Got to get the trailer ready for next week - going to the annual Victory Campout at Starkey, OR.

Got the power jack off Amazon for right around $100. Got good reviews with the only complaint being that it's pretty slow. Has an adjustable foot to give it more extension.

Help Stereo

I'm in the process of getting the 21RR set for a trip next week and found that the stereo is not working. It does not appear to have any power to it at all. Suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?

By the way, I jacked up the tongue quite a way (still attached to the truck) and it lessened the ramp angle a lot. I loaded the Gunner and it still scraped the frame but only a little. For this trip, I am going to extend the tongue and also prop up the tailgate about 4" and use a ramp extension. When I get more time I will look into adding taller rubber bumpers to the top of the door so I don't have to jury rig the thing every time I load or unload.

I'll post pics later of the tie-down system I'm using for the wheel chock.
