2014 Puma 39PBS. Mileage was not my friend this trip lol. As much as towing 40 ft park models sucks I will say they actually tow well. That much weight and length just ride better IMHO than a little light weight unit. Stupid patio door would not stay latched on this one. They usually screw them shut for transport but quality control missed this one I guess. Nothing a few zip ties wouldn't fix though lol.
Dry Hitch Weight 1,295 lbs. (587 kg)
Unloaded Vehicle Weight 9,225 lbs. (4,184 kg)
GVWR 11,455 lbs. (5,196 kg)
Exterior Length 40' 2" (12.2 m)
Exterior Height 11' 9" (3.6 m)
Exterior Width 96" (2.4 m)

Did you have to upgrade your hitch to handle tongue weights on some of the heavier units? How is the truck holding up so far?

Always look forward to your posts keep them coming.

No upgrade on hitch. Unloaded these park models are around 1000 lbs tongue weight which the WD the truck handles without issue.

The truck is holding up awesome for something 11 years old that sees this kind of mileage. Front end parts seem to wear fast, had to rebuild the tranny and rear end, other than just regular fluid changes.

Nope. Lloydminster is as far west as I get. I miss Calgary a lot, lived in Banff at some point back in the mid 90s lol
