If that is bumper pull trailer, you might want to figure that again. The Ford website lists an F250 crew cab with an 8' bed at 21.9'. That, along with your 34' trailer, plus the length of the hitch is going to put you well over 56'.

What got my attention is that I figure my rig right around 49'....and that is with a 28.5' trailer and an F150 Super Cab with a 6.5' bed.

majag86, We just got a Rockwood 2904 ,tow with a 2010 Tundra 5.7 , we traded a 28' Hornet. It pulls great can't tell any difference on the hwy. I do have to watch those turns due to the length. went on our first camping trip last week. we like the 2904, can't wait until next month to go again.

Jerry1946,

That's good to hear. I know the numbers work for the Tundra and the 2904, but hearing from someone with actual experience on how the Tundra handles the TT is great. Thanks for the post.

I agree with previous posts - go to a large parking lot and practice backing up. My DH has always said backing up with a larger trailer is easier. I learned to back our 16' boat trailer last year and it wasn't easy!! Haven't tried our TT yet, but one of these days....

We also went from 0' to a 32' TT and went from an '02 Durango to a Quad cab Dodge Ram 2500 with an 8' bed, as we tented for 20+ years. I still look behind us on every trip and say "yes, it's still following us." LOL.

Above all else, have fun and happy camping!!

Mtnguy that is 34ft including the trailer tounge, i should have been a little clearer on that,on the truck i read some time back and thought it was 19 1/2 but that was a while back,either way its still pretty long but i like it.

Plan your gas stops with the internet. It will help.

Your not going to fuel up there but I've found Cracker Barrel a safe stop.
