34 TBOK towing question

What do you use to tow your 34TBOK and have you had any issues getting into camp sites with it? I am thinking of getting one to replace our 28' tt(outside length if 32'. I think with the fifth wheel I wouldn't be much longer towing, but how about getting it into SP spots? I have a F250 cc with a V10 rated to pull 12500. If, I mean if, I load fairly light (which we usually do) will it be Safe towing?
Thanks

I have a 34 TBOK and pull it with a F350 CC long bed Diesel. I would think the F250 V10 would pull it fine. I just upgraded from a 28 foot prowler 5th wheel and have not had any trouble getting into Any campsites, even with the long bed crew cab truck. The trailer pulls great and better than my prowler did. It's a great floorplan, you won't be disappointed.

The 34TBOK is approx 38' in length, minus approx 4' over your truck bed when hitched, that'll leave you around 34' behind your truck. That's only 2' more in length than what you are use to now with your TT, think you'll be fine.
Though, do remember that a fifth wheel will "track" differently than your TT behind your truck that will take a little time to understand how to maneuver through those tight campgrounds.
