Pics with new mods...

Look closely and you can see some new additions to our 2012 32TSBH. Hint: Things are more stable now even without electric stab jacks

Wow looks like a nice set up bud...Question for ya?? Hows your TV with the weight of your trailer. We are looking at the 284 BHS Eagle which is 7400 lbs dry and we have a 2010 F-150 5.4 V8 Lariat. We were concerned about weight and wanted to know how your tow was. Take care and thanks.

Well, it depends on your truck. Mine is a SuperCrew with a 6.5' bed. I've got a Max Tow package and a 11,000lbs tow cap. My hitch is rated for 1100lbs. Lastly, I installed Firestone Ride Rite airbags to help level things out and eliminate porpoising while going down bumpy highways/interstates. I'm happy with my setup and have no reservations other than 30-40mph winds which have a nasty tendency to sway things at times.

I make the weight work several ways. First, I travel solo in the truck and my family rides in a support vehicle, our Edge. Second, I have a 36 gallon tank and only fill it with the gas I need for the trip to/from the campground. This is around a quarter tank. And lastly, I don't carry unnecessary cargo in the bed or back seat. Combine all this together and I max out my payload capacity.

I also have a Shurline scale and I've taken our rig to the local CAT scale. My tongue averages 950-1050lbs and the trailer in a heavily loaded state for us runs around 10,500lbs. I'm around the limits of my truck, but I'm still within the limits of it. The air bags did help substantially with ride quality.
