Well, it's been a pretty easy existence for my truck in the 4 months since I bought it. That's about to change, as I just implemented "Phase II" of my diabolical family adventure plan by getting a 28', 6,200 lb travel trailer that I pick up on Friday. Now I get to see how she feels pulling a load. Excited and a little nervous at the same time. I just pray I don't phuk anything up.....

Good luck man. I hope to join the camping ranks within a year or two myself.

Motor wise no problem...it being a 28' trailer though you will definitely know it is there as it will wiggle the truck around pretty good. Just fly by the seat of your pants and don't go too fast to correct anything.

Sway bar attachment, goes from the trailer frame to the hitch and helps with the swaying. I use one and I'm pulling a 24' 5,000 lbs trailer. Works great.

Ya use the sway bar with the WDH because when I tow the 24ft toy hauler it's high profile and will move me around going down the road a lot more than I like

I have the air ride on my truck also but the WDH helps a lot with trailer sway etc. These trucks have the power to pull a lot but they still lack in overall weight of vehicle which is what can allow the trailer to take control.

Thanks - I did get the WDH and towing the 6500 lb camper was not an issue at all

The best add for towing I've made is the timbren hd inserts. And it was the single most painful thing I missed while renting trucks for the past 2 months.
