I pull mine with a 2007 Toyota Tundra 5.7l v8 4.3r 4x4. Average 7.5 mpg. I am barely under my max GCWR by 500lb. Tows very well and has plenty of power to spare. The difference between the Tundra and other half ton trucks is the rear axle ratio, it produces 401 lb. ft. of torque. The problem with this is for daily driving without the TT it only gets 14 mpg, but it's a beast.

I tow our 2009 32BHDS with our '99 Silverado 1500 4x4. It has the extended cab with the 6.5' bed. 5.3 and 3.73 gears. Does OK on flat ground, I can tow it 60 MPH most of the time. If it is windy I'll have to back it down to 50 or so, have towed it between 65 & 70 when it wasn't loaded, I was taking it back for an estimate to repair hail damage. The trip where I ran it 65 I got about 9 MPGs, typically loaded and I run between 55 & 60 I'll get about 9.8 MPG both hand calculated. When it comes to hills, I'm definitely in the truck slow lane.

I pull mine with a 2006 F250 6.0. It does a great job.

If you're getting a new tow vehicle specifically for this trailer, I'd definitely get a 3/4ton of some kind. Both gas and diesel motors will pull the trailer, but diesel will do it better (for a price).

I used to pull mine (until some ******* stole it) with a 2004 Ford Excursion. V-10 gasser with a Broadcaster Active Suspension and a Hensley Arrow. Handles it with ease.

Next up for us (assuming they don't recover our 32BHDS) is a 32TSBH.

Just curious, was it a typo or what is a Broadcaster Active Suspension??

Pulling my 2012 32BHDS with a 2011 F350 6.7 Diesel. I love this setup. The 6.7 has 800lbís of the torque factory. I can set the cruise on 65 and up or down hill it stays there. I normally donít use a wdh for around town type pulls. I donít really need it. Anything over 50 miles I will throw it on.

Awesome combo! I am so jealous.

We have a 33RLDS which weights 8500# dry and gross weight of 10300#. I tow it with a Ford Supercrew with the ecoboost engine. The ecoboost has more than ample power and torque and pulls it with ease. Mine weights 9356# loaded and no issues at all while towing. The equilizer 4pt works great and no sway. I adjusted the equilizer once I had it loaded and took it to a weigh scale and weighed all axles and total weight and set it up accordingly. Gas milage on the flats is 18L per 100km or 15.5 MPG imperial or 13 MPG US running at 110kph Get into constint hill running and its another story....lol.

Cheers

RaveOn!

We pull ours with a 2008 F250 Ford CrewCab 8 ft bed. It does great, but you can tell it's back there when we went up steep Hocking Hills, but Hubster feels it didn't "struggle" but wouldn't want to go with any less of a truck. We started off higher and ended up with 9.2 mpg on that trip!

I pulled mine last year with a 2001 Yukon XL 2500 that had the 8.1, that will be sold in the next two weeks. I now pull it with a 2011 Silverado 2500HD CC with the 6.0.
