PJ looks like $$$! Do you have the thrown down trailer ramps? I have those in 1/4 steel and bent the 3/4” pin that holds it in. I’m thinking of upgrading to pin on aluminum ramps I can slide under the beaver tail.

Basic PJ singles 11K capacity. 8K was estimated weight it felt heavy back there. Slide outs no beaver tail. I dont use it often so I wanted it to be as short as possible for storage reasons. Love the trailer its paid for.

Noob here and just found this thread. Not the greatest pic, but here ya go. This is our 2014 Starcraft Autumn Ridge 329BHU.

8300# Dry/sticker weight, prolly pushing at least 9600# loaded to camp, with some fresh water always in the tank for pitstops (the ladies do not like using the public restrooms on long trips.) For our first 5 camping years we towed this little guy with our 2010 F250 5.4 gasser. It towed and I was never unhappy with the experience. I can not express in words how much better this 2017 6.7 tows though. It's not even a fair match.

Just picked up a new camper today. Had to trade the other one in and get something with bunk beds.

Loader at the gravel pit got a little carried away, I told him 4 tons. I expected about 4 1/2 since he always loads heavy, 5 tons is the limit in the trailer but that'll put me over the legal limit for the truck. I pulled over the scales and she wanted like $20 more than I expected. Dumazz put a little over 6 tons in it, I had a bit over 16K in a 14K trailer on a receiver hitch. Put my GCVW around 24K.
Oh well WTF, my 7.3 dually is rated for 20K and everyone knows they're under rated, right? Let's go, hope nobody stops fast in front of me.


Actually the truck pulled it fine, I was up against the limit for the Curt class V (17,000). Wish I'd have bought a GN instead of a bumper pull. I have two 14K bumper pull trailers, the dump and a car hauler, that why I upgraded the hitch.

Gonna have to get me a new 6.7 dually, then I can start breaking CDL limits.

You’re fine! I pulled 6T of shingle roofing material to the dump the other day and it maxed the chit out of the trailer. I figured it was 4T max till I pulled up to the scales. Surprised the old trailer did so well. A new 6.7 sounds about right

Ford has always under rated their trucks. Your just looking for an excuse to justify a new truck with the little lady

She says it has to sound as good as the 7.3, might have a problem there.
