That thing is a monster.  How did the D-max handle it over the Rockies? 

Honestly, It towed it great.  It would pass semitrucks with no trouble at all.  Keep in mind though that it was empty.....    If you were out on the flat somewhere it was hard to tell it was even back there.  Until you went to turn that is and that's a whole nother story  :o  I'll definitely have a learning curve with the whole turning thing.

Wow, Doug and Lance, way to step it up!  And Doug with a new buggy too.  You guys will be camping in style.  Congrats.  I bet you can't wait to use them.  Let's get that spring trip planned!   8)

Both of those appear to be same size as my red trailer. It's a 45 foot Haulmark. The duramax's will tow them all day long and be ready for more.

I have a 40' with 6" extra Height, Lance got the 48' with extra 12" Height. Yes my Duramax pulls it very well. I have since loaded it up and cannot tell too much of a difference. When at Hwy speed you somewhat forget that it is there...
