The official specs on my 26RR state:
Unladen weight: 5110
GVWR:7715
Cargo carrying capacity: 2567 (I carry a motorcycle)
I tow with a 5.7 Tundra SR5 with a cap on the tray and tools in the back.
Equalizer hitch set up by dealer.
No sway, sits and tows well, Tundra has to be allowed to rev at 3000 or so up hills.
More truck would be my aim but this combo works well with or without the motorcycle.

I pull our 26RR with an 08 Escalade ESV AWD (6.2, 6L80e, 3.42 rear) with a Pro Series 49903 WDH. Loaded weight is around 6800-7000 with 3 dirtbikes and a quad. I have no problems maintaining 65 on the highway and never drop below 55 on any hill. No sway, tracks well, and stops well with the trailer brakes.

I'm pulling a 2016 26RR with a 2010 F 150 Platinum with 5.4, 3.73, max towing package and a Husky Centerline TS WDH. The trailer tracks and pulls comfortably. To me the aerodynamic front and relatively low trailer height help make the 26RR a good choice for a properly setup 1/2 ton PU.

A WDH that is properly set up is vital. Depending on what you are carrying there may be a substantial difference in setup empty vs. loaded. I re-adjusted mine (Ball height and tongue brackets were off) according to Husky directions and it is rock sold and feels very stable. I really like the hitch but had to get used to how high the truck and trailer needed to be jacked up in order to slide the bars into or out of the tongue brackets. Far better than dealing with chains though.

I did add Airlift bags and always run 20 psi towing or not. The progressive rear leafs were always a bit too mushy for me.

Check the max tongue weight on your truck hitch before towing even a short distance without a WDH. For most hitches it's only 500 lbs without a WDH.

The 26RR has a substantially higher tongue weight and it's a lengthy trailer to pull with no sway control. The risk of damage to your TV far outweighs the cost of getting the hitch ahead of time IMHO.

I purchased my 26RR last month and I tow it with a 2014 Toyota Tacoma Crew Cab long bed. I use the Equalizer WDH and it tows great. No bounce or sway. I have a lot of noise from the hitch but I am getting the lubricant that is recommended by the manufacturer of the hitch and will see if that helps.

I have a 92 GMC K2500 with the 454 in it and the Anderson hitch. Pulls great and I love the Anderson hitch. I pulled it home with no WD and it did fine, not scary at all, only went about 20 miles. I would not do it with a half ton with the tounge weight. I did upgrade to a tekonsha Prodigy P2 controller, WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I had an el cheapo before but a smaller trailer. It was only full on or off, no in between, definately worth the upgrade wish I did it years ago.

Pulling my 26RR with a 14 Ram 1500 Sport 5.7L Hemi w/ 8 speed trans and 3.92 rear end. I use the integrated brake controller on heavy electric 4.0 gain. Also have a Recurve R6 1200lb WD system. Pulls like a dream....no sway at all.

Replacing the truck this week with a 2016 Ram Rebel. Same 8 speed tranny, 3.92 rear gears and integrated trailer brake. Got the 32 gallon tank on this one....should be able to get an extra 75 miles between fill ups.

Well I brought the 26RR home. It towed fine W/O a WDH the 26 miles home.

It wasn't level due to my trailer hitch being a drop instead of a rise.

06 Silverado Z71 Tow package. 5.3

I have a WDH coming by Brown Devil next week. Poor bastard that has to DR that to my porch :P (100lbs)

The sale before me was a 20ft being pulled by a van... Cut the telly pole tight before getting off the property.

Price Right in Dewitt, Mi did me right See Josh
