Not looking to get new TV. I'm new to the idea of re-gearing (no idea where to go, etc), but I understand what it would bring (pros and cons). Right now, I'm going to approach this as if we don't change the TV's current capabilities.
I'm hoping that if we keep the total TT weight (with whatever we pack in it) to 6000lbs or less, that we'll be able to tow even up the eastern coast or highways over the hills in TN/KY. I don't mind going slower for that, as long as my TV can handle it.
Right now, our forward thinking between the X23F, X254 (and maybe others) comes down to this... do we want everything enclosed (no tents, faster and easier setup), or do we want more room (and longer setup, more maintenance).
Just want to make sure our current truck could tow either of those and if I had wiggle room.
I plugged my numbers into a spreadsheet from one of the other threads and it looks like I could go up to 6250# and be at 87%. That tells me I want to stay at that or lower, preferably 5750-6000lbs. Where we would be camping, we'd buy stuff when we arrive as opposed to packing a lot.
