Ok thank you. It's a 1975 two horse trailer and a medium size horse. I tow it very carefully and never with a lead foot. I was thinking I could tow for close to home events but maybe not 3.5 hours into the Sierra's for camping anymore. Thank you for your response. I appreciate it.
Holy hell jasonL, that is a nice 5th wheel! How does it pull? What engine gear you have and what GVWR?
thanks. it pulls awesome gets better gas milage then my jayco 26 bh. on a 800 km trip when i picked it up i was averaging 23-26L per 100 kms. rarely downshifted from 6th gear and i have the 3.5 eco with 3.73 max tow.
[QUOTE=jasonL_031;3319626]Just picked up a open range light lf315bhs and so far i love it so much nicer then my Jayco. [IMG]https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/t1/1798709_10153885990915298_1620479175_n.jpg[/
What is the weight of your fifth and do you know your tonque weight? Also did you add air bags or another leaf. Thx
I think I am going to need a new camper after seeing all these nicer ones!
LOL I had the same thought. My camper is very similar to yours. I haven't pulled it with my truck yet though. I can't wait to feel how it pulls it. I'd previously hauled it with a minivan.....

upontheridge, What is the wheelbase on your 150. It looks like the short bed so maybe 145"?
[QUOTE=upontheridge;3309291]We looked at and like the Fun Finder Toy Haulers, the higher ceiling was especially nice, but at the time they did not have a model with a 10 foot garage. Which we need to fit all of our toys. We ended up with a KZ MXT 303. I have a 12 Ecoboost SCREW Platinum model and with KZ MXT 303 loaded it just fits under all of the payload etc weights. I notice the XT-330 is a bit heavier so may have put me overweight. Layout not that much different except for the totally enclosed front bedroom. We like the bathroom in the middle of the front and the back. Allows easy access to bathroom from rear garage and also the front living area as well. We did a trip from NC to Utah last May. Truck and trailer did great. Averaged about 8.5 mph over the 4,000 miles pulling trailer with all of the toys and stuff. If you want to stay within payload specs you really have to look at tongue weights on these units, although the extra weight in the back helps level out the load.
We just picked this 36 foot Fun Finder toy hauler from Muskegon MI. Made a pretty fun road trip out of it. I looked and researched quite a bit before getting this one. XT-330 is their brand new model they just came out with. Ecoboost pulled it just fine, barely got out of 6th gear only when driving thru the hills. Fuel Consumption was pretty bad, about 7.5 mpg and going around 65 mph.
It is quite an upgrade from our old setup (7x16 enclosed trailer) we use for motorcycle track days. Our old enclosed trailer was fully insulated with ac/heat, we had a blow up mattress in it and used it to sleep over night at the race tracks, but it was very limited for living in it.
At the dealer, getting my WD hitch installed (Reese strait line )
