I was kidding about NASCAR... I went to the race in Montreal few years ago, it's just not very popular here.

Also going on our first trip in 3 weeks in NH... can't wait

My wife chose the expensive tent over the reinflatable.

Even with the 5.5' bed on the truck, no clearance problems. I can turn as tight as I want going forward. Haven't tried to jacknife it going backwards yet, and don't see a need to. I have towed for about 1500 miles already, and the towing experience is very comfortable. Pulled a couple of 6000 ft. passes in Utah, and it did just great. Coming from a Chevy duramax to this ecoboost, and I am very impressed with the low end torque.
Your Rockwood has a very similar floor plan to my Cougar 299RKS. I wonder how they managed to get the pin weight about 250lbs less? How was descending the passes in Utah?
I had considered the Timbrens, but went with SuperSprings. I see your truck looks level where I still have a slight rake with mine. What do you think of the Timbrens? And how much rail clearance do you have?

I looks like you need to crank up the tension on your hitch some, your truck is squatting a lot.

I would love to find a toy hauler in that range so I can take my jet ski with us, but that seems unlikely.
Check out some of these, I haven't ever had a forest river yoy hauler but have had a few Rockwoods and the quality is there.

This is a huge trailer... even with your EB, you will not forget it's back there ;-)

What do you put at the back of this thing... just curious

Dead bodies mostly unless we are going riding and then a couple Polaris ATV's. If I posted the tongue weight when nothing is in the back it would make some on here's eyes bleed .

LOL

Don't keep the dead bodies for too long, they smell after a while... ;-)

As for the tongue weight I would say 1300lbs empty
