What are you towing and hauling?

Just curious what people are using as tow vehicles and what Jayco's they are hauling. I have a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab with 4x4. I upgraded the exhaust to a 3" cat-back system and installed a k&n cold air intake. I use a weight distribution hitch and I am towing a Jayco 31DSLB. 34'11'', 62500 lbs dry.

I like the set up I have, everything sits level while towing, and the truck does really well while under load.

Would love to hear what other people are doing out there on the road!

Swift 184BH pushing a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I installed airbags on the jeep and I have a power programmer. Tows like a dream! Last month on my trip to Branson I averaged 14mpg.
