With the turbo diesel there is gobs of power and good mileage, no issues there. You'll probably notice the shorter wheel base coming from a pickup but it doesn't bother me. It's rated at 7200lbs so if you load your trailer too heavy it'll be over weight. The 24FBS is rated at 7000lbs and we make efforts to keep it light but I haven't weighed mine fully loaded yet.

This is my TV (2015 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Off Road w/Tow Package) picking up our new TT at Clear Creek RV in Silverdale, WA this last November (early xmas present). This trailer is the perfect size for our little pickup and tows great.

I'll vouch for that. I love the way my Diesel Jeep pulls my jayco 28bhs. Towed from Utah to Mt. Rushmore and back this past summer, just over 2k miles and averaged over 13mpg for the entire trip.
