Need help with selection of th
This is my first post to the board. I have been reading 100's of post today about the xlr's. Seems like there as been lots of problems with this TH. Fuel tank not filling, doors falling off hinges, ect. I have found a 2012 xlr 27hfs for $17,500, oh and read they only have 3500lbs axles under it. I just don't understand why they would put such small axles on a TH that you can't put over 1300 pounds in without getting close to maxing it out. Seems like a lot of quality issue with this model.
I read some who said they have a KZ-MXT 302 that did not seem to have many quality problems. I have not found a lot of info on this model on the board. I did find a 2012 KZ-MXT 302 for $16,500. Both the xlr and mxt are in really great shape. I do know the MXT does have 4400lb axles under it. So that is a big plus. I don't know if there are problems filling the fuel tank and other quality issues. I don't like that it is only 6'6" tall on the inside. I'm 6'2" and hate bumping my head on light fixtures, but I can live with that if I don't have all the other problems being talked about on the xlr.
What I need help with is which one would you buy? Hopefully there are people that have experience with both. I'm suppose to go look at these 2 units on Monday and buy one of them.
Final question, I'm looking to buy one of the new 2016 Toyota Tundras Double Cab with the 5.7 engine and tow package with the sway bar. I believe it is rated to 10,300 pounds. I will install a Blue Ox equalizer on the trailer.
I'm using the TH to do competition BBQ events. So in the cargo area it will only have my smoker and a small stainless steel sink about 600 lbs. Probably will only have about 1000lbs total loaded in the TH, not counting if I ever have to haul water. So the water would be another 400lbs to the TH. So at most 1400lbs total weight if I had to have water. Has anyone used this truck to pull either of these trailers?
Thanks in advance for answering these 2 questions.
