    I believe there is a bit of liability if you tow over the limit 'eh ?

    I don't usually go more than 4 - 5 hours of traveling distance away. It tows pretty well overall, definitely doesn't tow with ease but hey, I have still have the 100,000 mile manufacturer's engine and transmission warranty incase anything craps out ;)

    Just make sure you tell them it weights exactly 6,000 lbs and you're golden. ;)

    Finally made it to the Outer Banks this year, perfect weather! Just shut the truck off for a couple days and enjoyed the beach. Talked to so many cool people, only one old Karen. Ran it through the wash twice when I got back, spent a good part of a day cleaning the sand out of the truck and off of everything. Still worth it. Overall 8 day trip, definitely learned a lot for the 24 day trip over Christmas and New Years. West coast and back. Already miss being on the road and in the tent.

    How packed was it? Usually when we go we end up staying in Mammoth Lakes. We did stay in the yurts at Curry Village once but that was for the Half Dome hike. Always packed full.

    Day one of the Northern Arizona Traverse. Solid moderate-level trail. Trailer very capable.

    https://expeditionportal.com/overland-routes-northern-arizona-traverse/

    Recommend: The short stretch of dirt at the beginning can be bypassed. Don’t do it. There are challenges there that definitely gauge your readiness early, with an easy bail out, if you want it.

    We broke camp next morning and traveled to Mingus Mtn, then Jerome. Nice visit there, and then went home. The trailer can wheel. I’m quite satisfied.

    Not technically camping, but just got my ARE MX shell installed today after a 5 month wait. My camping roll-a-cot setup is going to work great. I can sit up full when sitting in the cot but I am going to cut about 2-3" inches off the legs anyway to make it a little more roomy. Sand beach chair fits right next to it for chilling out inside on colder nights or in rain. I had planned to have this for 2 different camping trips I took 2 and 3 weekends ago but ended up tenting it. Can't wait to try it out! Thinking a Joshua Tree weekend in a few weeks!

    The disappointing thing is that it's incredibly hard to get a reservation for a campground in Upper/Lower Pines but it was only 2/3rd full when we were there.

    Thanks! My 4 year old wanted to sleep with me in the RTT and my wife wanted the trailer which worked out nicely for our 1 year old.

    Yeah I'm not even sure how we managed to get into Curry Village. It was pure luck we got a Half Dome permit as well.

    What’s the length on the cot? When I checked on roll-a-cots they were too short or too long.

    I’ve had mine for about 20+ years and when I measured it manually I was confident it would fit. The “metal frame” part came in at ~72” long. The mesh on the ends is crimped up and flexible and I suspect that is what they use for any official measurement but it isn’t t controllable because they heat shrink wrap the ends and screw them into the frame.

    With that said, I don’t have official measurements from 20+ years ago but below is their website. They have several models in diff lengths and widths with length ranging from 67” to 74” to even longer.

    I love this cot cause it is so comfortable, light and easy to setup and break down. Plus it only needs 4 legs to support due to the sliding metal frame so it can go over the wheel well and not have a middle support leg interfere.

    I suspect mine is a 74” model but cannot guarantee. Worth a call to them to ask how the 74” is measured. They must know pickup truck owners are part of their market and would be foolish to not make it fit in a long bed Tacoma. But you’d also think they would advertise it at 72- 73” to remove all doubt.

    I have been considering it but I am trying to not add much more weight after this mod. The cot is super comfy and light and I love that I can break it down in 2 minutes mid-trip if I need more room in the bed. If my wife wants to start tagging along on trips I light do a basic raised bed in the back but also make it easy to remove. Would not want it permanent.

    My solo trips I am rather minimalistic so I don't need the storage space on a drawer system.

    Thnk you though, I have looked at those threads and watched youtube videos of them.
