Questions about Towing weight, size, and what the truck can handle.
Hey Family, Sorry i have not been around in a while. Life got the better of me. Got some new toys so ive been hanging out in the Kawasaki and Raptor forms and i havent had time or money to put into the PSD. But.... now me and Mama are talking about a Toy hauler and i have questions. I Know Ford Says i can tow 12,500lbs with tow behind and 12,800 fifth wheel. My Baby is a 2002 4x4 crew cab Long Bed. I'm interested in knowing what people like more. my debate is losing the Bed space. I have 3 full size ATV's. (for those who are asking they are Honda 400EX, Kawasaki KFX 700, and Yamaha Raptor, all stock... right now) So i know if i get a 5ther i'm going to lose my bed for another atv. so that is a concern, also i have heard that pulling behind is not as smooth or easy as the 5ther. Now i have towed a 5ther before with my uncles Old F450 with the 460, and i liked it a lot. I'm also intrested in hearing form Toy hauler owners, what you bought, why you went with what you went with. I'm looking for a 25 to 30 foot 5th wheel and maybe a 20 to 25 foot tow behind. also what else would you recommend for the rig to tow in the 10000lb range. Any info would be very helpful. There also might be a RZR or a 4th ATV in the future so i need to keep that in mind too. RIght now i have a Little single axle 10 foot flat bed that i tow the atvs with and i almost cant tell its behind me unless were going up a hill. Thanks for the help.
