I would love to find a toy hauler in that range so I can take my jet ski with us, but that seems unlikely.
What about a hybrid TT? The Rocwood Roo 21DK is nice...

I am hoping that someone can help me, I just got rid of my 08 F350 and my 34' fifth wheel and bought a 13 F150 5.0 with trailer package and a 26' travel trailer, I picked both up last week and I know nothing about travel trailers. Well my first test ride I was white knuckled, the trailer was all over the rode, supposedly the rvdealer has set up the W.D. hitch and sway bar but I could not go over 80k (50mph) I went back to the rv dealer and he just said that's the nature of the beast they don't tow like a fifth wheel. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks

Yea they suck, that's why I got a 5th wheel. A 26 footer shouldn't be that bad though. How much does it weigh? They probably set the hitch up wrong.

My camper is a 26' TT and I don't have that much of an issue with it towing. Gotta be the setup.

Sounds like you need to lower the front of the trailer a bit

As said before, you shouldn't have any problems. Either the hitch is set up incorrectly or you have too much loaded in the back of the trailer, making the tongue weight too light.

My trailer is 26 feet and I don't have any issues at all.

You need to find a new rv dealer.
