My 2011 Tundra pulls the 27HFS with an 1,100 pound Harley in the garage and the TT gas tank full with no issues. Being my second time around, I knew sway was my enemy. I put a big sway bar on the back of the truck, and got a WDH with active (not friction) sway control.

How much room do you have in the garage with a trike in there?

It's not a trike, it's a 2003 ultra classic full dresser. From the front wheel chock to the bathroom door is 3-4 inches and behind the tour pack is maybe 2 inches. So it is a tight fit. They advertise a 10' garage, but its really about 9'8".

I have a 1\2 ton truck as well and so far so good but feel I'm pushing it a bit. What does your TT weigh if you don't mind me asking ?

I don't know if you are asking me but my TT weighs about 6000 lbs and I load about 4000 lbs so total is close to 10,000 lbs. I pull with a 2012 ford super duty 3500 single rear wheel. It has been awesome

Yep...dealers will tell you ANYTHING to make a sale.

It's all about weight, how much, where you put it and what your TV can handle.

Good read. Thanks for sharing. Couple of observations. 1. You mentioned sway control chains. I'm thinking you may be referring to the weight distribution hitch WDH (bars), which have chains on the ends that hook to the trailer. If so, do you also have the anti-sway bar beside the hitch ball? Or, does your WDH have built in anti sway features?
2. Another benefit from half ton to 3/4 ton is the tires. Half ton probably had passenger tires (load range c) which have soft sidewalls allowing more sag and sway. The 3/4 ton probably has Lt tires load range E with stiffer sidewalls, for load bearing.
Either way, you've got a good set up now a great story for the campfire. Or forum. Lol
