truck tow it well? I have an F150 5.0 and will have to upgrade the differential to 3.55 to get 9100 LB towing capacity. What hitch did you buy?

No issues pulling it. I added Timbren SAS springs to prevent any potential sag in the back. My trailer has a pin weight of 1087lbs. Dry weight is 7600 pounds. I come in at about 8400 pounds loaded. I have a Reese 16 K hitch. I don't need a slider with the revolution pin box on the trailer.
