Everyone else, consider your chain jerked! Did you seriously not see the Lol! At the end of what I CLAIM to tow with my post? LOL!

Just having a little fun with all the “my stuff is better than your stuff” posters.

The only serious thing I posted is how I’m going to the lake this weekend. And yes, there will be beer. Heck, I might even go full Monty and put bait on the hook this time!

Keep on camping my bretheren of the campground. And tow safe until you get there.


Yep. Soon as I saw you were a submarine sailor I knew there was a "Sea Story" coming! Bravo Zulu brother from down under!

And now you guys have P-8's to contend with from 30000 feet!

In the Toyotas defense-lol, :wink: at least I see those "1/2 tons" pulling at least a 27'- 29' TT.
Of course when I had my "1/2 ton" Titan (perf chip, headers, ram air, airbags, E range tires, etc....Toyota was the enemy (here kitty kitty)
In 04` Japan trucks were above and beyond the US ones.
Ohh, by the way I towed my Springdale 291KSSR all over AZ with that "1/2 ton", but had to hit around 4500rpm climbing up those 6-7% grades-lol

This thread is funny. I have two trucks, a 2012 4x4 heavily modified 5.3 and an 04 ram 4x4 long bed four door with the 5.9 Cummins and 4.10 gears. My trailer is usually around 6400lbs loaded for a long trip.
The half ton had absolutely zero problems with power pulling a 30ft trailer but I paid attention to payload and gross axles weights. I usually spend most of October and November at our hunting land and I always had to make two trips in the half ton because I like to hit the cat scales often and last fall I was so overloaded I was embarrassed. This year will be nice it'll be the first hunting season with the ram and I'm sure it's gonna be so nice taking the generator and enough wood all in the same trip. My trailer is an ultralight and the half ton was fully capable with zero problems until I wanted to take all of my hunting equipment and enough wood and extra water for a week or more at a time. I see way too many people who have never been over the scales bragging about how great they pull their camper with a half ton and their trailers are way bigger than mine. I don't understand how many people have never weighed what they are pulling, it's not that hard and it's definitely an eye opener. I'm sure I'll still pull with the Silverado occasionally but only if it's me for a short fishing trip. Hit those scales people, your not the only ones on the road. Thanks to sourdough and jrtjh last year I learned an awful lot about payload. Thanks guys. Dan edit to add chuckster and Javi. You guys helped me out alot.

True, but it cannot be denied that there are way more airplanes on the sea floor than submarines in the sky!

Here is the follow up I promised. Towing a 27SABWE Cougar with full tanks to simulate max GVWR of the trailer, 8800 pounds. Using the Equal-i-zer 1000/10,000 WD hitch. The truck easily maintains speed up a 6% grade. In fact I was able to gain speed, so the engine is good to go. The rear shocks are seriously under dampened and will be replaced. The front was planted but I'll probably change those as well. Overall very easy with no issues. If I wss inn the market to replaced my truck, I'd probably get a 250. Since mine is new and it handled the load with one small issue, that's easily fixed, I'll stick with what I have.

Did I miss the result of your weekend trip? How did you like your friend's truck?
