My wife and i are looking at purchasing a camping trailer i.e. Jayco Feather. We are still looking at all the options but i would like some feedback from field. I have a 2006 DC TRD Sport so i am reading it is rated for 6000 lbs. I also understand it can take approx. 1200 lbs cargo payload (including hitch weight).
Normally trailers are not hauled wet (maybe just propane) so i've been looking at the dry weight. That said, from any of your experiences what is the sweet spot i.e. largest trailer i can pull comfortably without being thrown around like a rag doll. Should i refrain from anything over 5000 lbs? I am also planning on investing in a weight distributing reciever from what im told is awesome to tow with.
The other thing, is i'm planning on purchasing a Toytec Ultimate Lift kit down the road with UCA's. Will i have any issues hualing a trailer of this kind? I understand i would probably use a reciever with a 3" drop but I would also be using a wieght distributing hitch.
Any assitance feedback would be much appreciated considering i am looking at spending approximately $20k and i want to do it right the first time.
