Great thread, def my fav. I also dig through the site looking for pics of TT's & boats. Looking to get a TT soon, just looking for something that will fit my needs. I have a SCrew Raptor and can only tow 8000 lbs. So I'm looking for something about 5000 lbs fully loaded and "wet". I would love to find a toy hauler in that range so I can take my jet ski with us, but that seems unlikely.

Yeah... that's gonna be a tough one to find something that will carry toys and stay under that weight.

The only other option is a pop-up with a deck. I used to have one and it held ONE ATV. Unfortunately, the toy sits outside.

That's why we chose a mini slide model bunkhouse instead of the full slide models that end up being 1000lbs heavier and a ft taller.
i'm sure i saw you on another f-150 forum with these same pics, alexleblanc ? nice units btw ! i have a 2010 lariat and a 27 ft. dutchmen classic, love it...

Here's my Pop Up I pulled with a 2005 Nissan Pathfinder and my most reliable vehicle I've ever owned, my 2008 Sport Trac 4.6L 3V 4WD.

The camper loaded was about 2700 lbs with a 300 lbs tongue weight. It had a full shower/toilet inside and a outside shower built into the outside wall. Had dual propane tanks for extended colder stays. We definitely didn't ruff it in this camper. The setup was extensive and wife hated it.

Now with the travel trailer it's so easy, put the front jack up, put the stabilizers up, crank down the antenna and GO.
