I just ordered a Jayco Baja 10g with toilet and shower. Delivery is 6-10 weeks. I am gong with a combined WD/anti-sway hitch due to the extra tongue weight of having a 700lb. 4-wheeler on the front deck. I'll get pics up when I take delivery!

Here is my new-ish 2002 Fleetwood Coleman Caravan C25SLB. 4200# dry, 550 TW. Tekonsha Voyager controller and WD hitch with $40 Autozone add-a-leaf helpers. Tows and stops no problem. Don't get me wrong, I know it's there, but not too bad.

Hey Rob! Looking forward to seeing you and the family, missed you last year.

Just made a deal for some bolt-on sliders from another member here, so maybe I will risk some trail time.

I can't wait to test the camper out, it's a tough wait for me. I'm an instant gratification guy! My goal is to get out 6-10 times this summer. (And at least 2 times with my wife!)

I highly doubt water and gear would add 2200lbs.

When I water up and gear up it add 800lbs to my trailer.

I have 3 - 40 gallon tanks. 800+/- for fresh but I never fill that for a trip. Maybe when I get to camp. So if all 3 were full then yeah 2400+ pounds. But we shouldn't have to run with black and grey tanks full. I figured I am about 500 for gear and food but 9/10 times we shop when we get there.

You'll be way over the tongue weight limit. Very interested in how your truck does with that. Please do update us when you get it.

Bullshit. The Baja 10's are only 300 lb hitch/tongue weight dry. Even with the quad, not all of it will end up as tongue weight.

Not a Tacoma, but I towed this today. By far the heaviest thing I have ever towed. Forklift weighs about 9500 pounds and the trailer is over 4000. Loading it was interesting, even though it was a tilt trailer. Glad I had a diesel to pull that one. Haha

The Bajas have close to a 2000lb cargo limit designed into the camper. The thought process was to not have to put my wheeler in the bed of my truck.

I will be sure to post up actual tongue weights with and without the toy onthe deck!

^^^this...is what I'm hoping for. The WD/antisway hitch is just extra insurance towards ease of towability, and probably a little overkill.

2013 Grey Wolf 25RB 27' Travel Trailer. First time towing it today with my ProEFX Towing Mirrors. Tows great but I am going to invest in a set of Firestone airbags just to help the sag. The WD hitch helps but wanna try to keep the truck as level as possible.
