Re: What are you towing?

Purchased a 26' TT this summer. Have towed it about 12K miles so far and camped about 40 nights in it, including a trip to Alaska (detailed report and pics here). Trailer weight varies from 5K to 6300 depending on what's packed and tank levels. I keep the tongue weight between 600 and 680, again depending on load.

RR spacer front, OME HD rear. HEMI pulls with no issues, but the wheelbase makes things interesting in windy conditions.

Hopefully in 2 weeks time I'll be towing a Sea-Doo RXP-X 260. Fastest production jet ski

Who has dibs on the GC when I wipe myself out at 125km/hr on the lake?
