Let's See Your Tow Vehicle, Trailer or Rig

I did a quick search and didn't see any threads on what everyone is using to tow there campers. Let's see what you tow with.

This is my '96 F350 Power Stroke. I've had it for over 12 years and has 202K miles on it.

tjl -
Great idea but you've set the bar way too high for the rest of us!
How can we possibly post any pics of our TV's now that we've seen yours? Can't you delete the two pics and post something a little less intimidating? How about throwing a bit of dirt or sprinkling some dust on your Ford to make it look a bit more "ordinary".
Sorry, but you scared me off.

Almost at a loss for words but how about...."WOW"!

That Ford is super clean! Very nice.

Here is mine with all my other stuff. The Equinox is the newest an 07, everything else is at least 10 years old.

Here it is with my old 5th wheel, which is only 500lbs lighter than my new 32 foot Passport.

Just a plain ole 2002 6.0/4L80E/4.10 truck 325 HP 360 FT/LBS of torque. It has tune and exhaust.
Tows 7500 lbs just fine. I just rolled 29,200 miles

We have two tow vehicles, sort of....

This little hot rod drags our boat with us when we go to any CG that has a lake where we can use said boat:

And, "Yeah, it's got a Hemi!

And the boat ('68 Sea Sprite with a 2007 Merc 50):


Now for the beastie:

Love the truck. I had an 03 F-250 the same color and body style. It was the best looking of the 3 Superduty's I have owned.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee V6 (with factory installed towing package)
2013 Passport 195RB (3880 lbs empty)

Although the Jeep is rated at 5000 lbs towing capacity,
never had any problem so far (5000 mi)

Usually drive at 60 mph (3000 rpm) on highway.
It can shift in OverDrive (2200 rpm) when there's no wind.

Didn't had any problem crossing PA mountains.
On some steep hill, I was only going 45 mph as I didn't want to push the engine too much.
