Towing with the 275(TCM)

Went on a 4-wheeler ride at Enid Lake yesterday. About 20 bikes total. A friend and his son rode with me. I pulled a 18ft tandem axel trailer with 4 bikes on it. Drive time was about an hour (1 way). Some hwy, some back roads, some interstate. The EGTs only hit 1000 a couple times when accelerating from stop uphill and merging on the interstate. For the most part, the EGTs stayed between 700 and 850. EOT and ECT 198-201. TFT reached a high of about 168. All in all did well. I think I'll try the 250 next time to compare. Just thought I'd give a little feedback. Here's a pic of the truck and trailer loaded up.

Thanks for helping me out! I like the look of the stock 20s. I wanted to go 22", but it makes everything so much more expensive.

I have also never had any problems/high numbers towing my stock trailer with the 275. It weighs in around 2500-3000 lbs or so loaded and I have done 6 hrs round trip on it problem free, got just a tick better mileage than the 210 did.

With that load you would have no issue in the 310. Good numbers though
