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.

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.

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.



New Setup:
At the dealer, getting my WD hitch installed (Reese strait line )

At my storage parking slip



10 foot garage with a sliding screen door

Our first camping trip/track day from last week at Roebling road raceway near Savannah GA. Everything went smooth as butter. Everything inside the camper worked as planned.

quick pic from our set up at the track. We'll be back there in few weeks for Wera race in March.
