Well, not even a Cat 797 dump truck has 16' wheels. Its wheels are a tad over 5' in diameter ... the tire is "only" a tad over 13'. Not sure what you'd do with a cover big enough for a 16' wheel. ...

The biggest issue is to get away from the front corner pinch points of common folding camp chairs. It's tough to find a good, solid camp chair that fits like an actual chair. The best success we've...

Well, your Ultra Lite 2608BS RV weighs 8,000 lbs and drops 1,125 lbs on your hitch. Add you and your wife, fully clothed, for 300 lbs. Add 2 bikes for 100 lbs. Add 2 kayaks for 150 lbs. Add 50...

Cargo of that trailer is 1,900 lbs, which is a pretty big number. I doubt you'll consume all of that. So, I'd budget around 8,200 lbs rolling down the road. This will drop 1,150 lbs onto your...

Definitely not. You'll be rolling down the road at 6,500 lbs with a 12-14% tongue weight. Your 2507S will have a tongue weight of around 850 +/- 50 lbs.

I only point this out to continue to...

You can build out your needs pretty fast. 6,500 lb trailer will drop around 850 - 950 lbs on the hitch.

Your trailer is a bunkhouse, so I'll assume a family of 4. So, figure 500 lbs for fully...

I recommend you rethink your loading strategy. Only dropping 9% of your trailer's weight onto the hitch is contrary to most safety guidelines.

Actually, he's hauling an 8,000 lb trailer plus 2,500+ lbs of people/gear. He states "2500+ pounds of equipment, including passengers," and I assume he's not putting passengers in the trailer.

As others said, it’s simple math: 2,500 + 1,000 = 3,500. You need a truck with at least 3,500 lbs of payload capacity. 3,800 lbs would probably be a safer bet. You’re nudging close to DRW...
