Moving Up

We currently have the X17Z and like it. However, it is turning out to be too small for us. The main reason we went with that size was the limit of our tow vehicle. That van has been traded in and next spring we will probably be upgrading the camper. Our new tow vehicle is a 2007 F350 dually 2wd 6.0 with 3.73 gears. Previous owner added air bags and a 40 gallon aux tank. I have my eyes on the Eagle 34.5bhts. I am assuming I will have no problems with this trailer?

Probably not an issue. Re check the total GWV. 40 gal of fuel will add another 320 lbs, but I'm guessing the 350 will not even know the trailer is back there.

Quite a upgrade.

So many of us have done exactly that. Bought what our TV can handle at first only to change TV in the short term then trade for the bigger TT you couldn't handle originally.

I have the 34.5 BHTS and a Ram 3500 SRW. The trailer is balanced really well and tows great. You will have no worries with your set up.

Hope this helps.
