I tow(ed) a 35' Sprinter TT that is(was) around 10,000lbs loaded with my 2003 GMC 2500. I use a Reese Dual Cam and once everything was adjusted correctly (not slightly nose high like the dealer had it), all is well. Tongue weight was right at 1,300lbs. Towed for 12 years and never a problem with sway. Even with a blowout on a China bomb tire in the middle of Atlanta, no sway, and the trailer was easy to control.

I think this length and weight is fine with a 3/4 ton. Important thing it to have enough tongue weight, and the hitch properly adjusted.

We have just recently ordered a Jayco 5th wheel and sold the trailer.

You will not have any problems towing 35 footer with an F250...I tow a 37' decked out to just shy of 11,000lbs. I use 1200 lbs Reese bars on the fifth link. Running about 1500 lbs of tongue weight. I did nothing to my F250 as far as suspension. Just recommend to keep on the white line when being passed by trucks and you'll be fine.

I used to tow a 36' TT with a ford excursion. No problem. Just make sure you have a good WDH.

Denise I have a 29qbs and like everyone said you will have no problem. Last year I pulled mine with a 1500 and had no issues at all. I was using a blue ox WDH and strongly recommend it! The only other mod I made was "Stable Loads". Also highly recommend them. They engage your overload leaf springs but are removable when not towing so you can go back to stock ride. Love the camper, congrats! By the way my tongue weight was always around 1000lbs. I was being as conservative as possible because I was pulling it with a half ton.

I have the same trailer except in 2014 they called it a QBH and it is 1 foot shorter (boy I wish I had yours because the queen bed is longer). Anyway, I also have an f250 with the equalizer sway and weight distribution. My set up tows like a dream. I have mostly towed east coast and eastern Midwest. I have had some strong winds in Ohio and Indiana. No problems. The truck squat is minimal (maybe an inch or so). I haul 4 persons, a dog, a 130lb generator, 10 gals fuel in truck bed as well as coolers and misc stuff. If you have any questions, feel free to ask

I have a 2015 Ram 2500 and a 29QBS. I have an Equal-I-Zer with 1200 lbs bars. Tows great. We usually do about 68 on the highway, no problems at all. I have read that the Ford springs are a little softer than the Ram coils, so you will likely have more squat, but that is a GREAT truck for that size camper. Your truck can probably haul TWO of those campers at the same time and be fine!

Bucko other then the bed length how do you like the trailer. Bought ours last year and sure fell in love with it. Only a couple complaints. So glad to hear others have this trailer, I was starting to think I bought an odd ball trailer!

I sent you a private message so I didn't hijack this thread.
