Yes this is a sweet setup, is your 6.2L is gas or diesel and if it gas how do you like it?

Thanks. It is gas and I love it. Fortunately the gas tank holds 35 gal. Took it on a 6k mile trip this summer from NC to Yellowstone stopping at Rocky Mountain NP and the Tetons on the way and it had no trouble pulling up the mountains and just used the manual gear mode for going down. Averaged about 8.5 mpg. I pull a 35' 8k lb. trailer and use an equalizer weight distribution hitch and have not had any sway or towing issues.

my new to me TV 2015 Silverado 5.3 343 gear looks like new inside and out I really like this truck max tow rating 9600lb 1600+ payload and 1200lb max tongue weight pulling mi 21fbrs at 4500lb loaded should be more fun than the Chevy Colorado i had.

Awesome, this is good to hear, I love my dodge ram 2500 6.4L but at some times I think that I wish that I would have bought the 3500 but for now it's does tow what I have with no problem, it's good to see more gas big trucks out there towing the big trailer.

I will be planning a trip from WA. to Las Vegas this next summer, just can't wait. I love the floor plan of your 2016 Rockwood Windjammer 3029W also.

Kev, you should google the 'Oak Ridge Boys' song; "Trying To Love Two Women."

My '08 Tacoma 4dr TRD was overloaded with just my Roo 23SS on the back, and it wasn't very good with even a shallow hill. Sorry to sound like the weight police here but your combo is very concerning to me based on my experience with a Tacoma. Great truck for off-roading though.

the Tacoma does a really good job pulling the 26RR. I have had it weighed at the station with the truck and trailer I am coming in at 10400. Under the CVWR for the Tacoma. I am also 1400 pounds under the 6500 trailer weight limit for it. I pulled it all the way from Ohio when I bought it through the mountains and had no issues. I never got below 40 on the 7 percent grades and I still got between 9 and 10 MPG the whole way. I don't pull over 65 MPH even on the interstates and it responds very well. Plenty of power left in the tank. Thanks for your concern. I spent lots of time looking for a toy hauler that was 1/2 on towable before I zeroed in on the 26RR. The weight distribution hitch makes all the difference to me.
