I tow my tt with a 2007 Tundra 5.7. My 27' tt dry weighs about 4900 lbs. The truck tows the camper unbelievably well-with plenty of power to spare. I usually run in 5th gear, which is the first overdrive, at 2000 rpms. I don't think I would want to pull anything more than 7500 lbs though. I know the Tundra is rated to tow over 10,000 lbs, mainly because of the 4.30 gear ratio, but I wouldn't want to do it. It is a 1/2 ton, after all.

Bought a 2011 Jayco G2 33rlds

I got an incredible deal on the trailer from a great dealer found it at the rv show local. Got all my towing needs included and threw in a Yamaha 3000s generator.

Buying one Recliner that I wanted and keeping the two couches. Love the Fireplace, how could you camp without and Indoor Fireplace...

I remember camping as a kid and received death threats from my Father not to touch the inside of the tent...Look at me now MOM!!!

We have a 330RLTS and wouldn't even think of towing it with less than a 3/4 ton truck. My brother in law has a 320RLDS and he is glad he bought a 3/4 ton truckl. He just wishes he had a diesel.
