We pull a 361 REQs dry weight of 12200 with a 2013 GMC 2500 SRW Duramax. We added a SuperSpring before we ever pulled the 5er so we don't know what it would have been like without the springs but it pulls like a dream and the truck hardly squats when we load it.

Following a MH last night while out for dinner gave me an idea about your hauling question. Have you looked at a Toy Hauler? The "garage" could be fitted with racks to store your craft setup and shelves for the totes with smaller items.

Thanks for thinking of me! Sounds like you've read some of my other posts.

Someone else suggested a toy hauler on another thread. Last night we went to the local dealer to give a quick look at them, but as it was getting dark and the power wasn't on, I wasn't able to tell too much. But I can go back during the day! (they all recognize me by now, I'm sure)

And I just sent a long post to the Toy Hauler section with a whole bunch of questions to determine if this might be a good option for me.

So, we'll see. I have lots of time to figure all this out and I'm doing tons of research. This forum has helped me quite a bit, for which I'm very thankful.

No trouble NW. I saw your post on the toy hauler thread. I would think any tote stacked two or more high would have to be secured. You could certainly attach racks/shelves to the floor and probably to the walls. Any shelving would need barriers to keep the shelf contents from shifting. Another option would be a small-ish motorhome pulling an enclosed trailer.

We have a 2013 Jayco Eagle Premier 321RLTS. We tow with a 2008 Ford F350 diesel. We used to tow with a 2001 Ford F350 gas. The difference is a lot. The diesel pulled so much easier, especially over hills and mountains. We have a full size 8ft bed. Fully loaded I believe we are at 14,000lbs.

I have a 39 foot Eagle 338rets with 3 slides and my F-250 with 6.2L gas engine, 2WD, handles it great. Best towing package ever. You need to look at these.

We have a 2014 351 RSTS being hauled behind a 2013 Ram 3500 SRW diesel. I could not imagine pulling this with less than a 1 ton. The RSTS is very similar in weights to the unit you were or are considering. Bottom line is it is too much camper for you Tundra. Pin weight is around 3200 lbs with a GVWR of 15,500lbs. I doubt your Tundra is either legal or capable of long term towing of 15k with almost 4k in the box (pin weight plus hitch).

We have a 2004 Silverado one ton truck that we pull our 375BHFS with and it handles really well.
