Trailer? Don't you mean house! How much does that weigh? Tongue weight? Drive safely with that and have fun wherever you go with it.

Hey caltitan................

It weighs 6000lbs when empty so I figure 7000lbs with our stuff in it. the tongue weight is 750lbs and its 11' tall.
No wonder why I get 7.5 to 8.5 MPG when pulling.
We bought the truck just for pulling and as its now winter here in Michigan its stored untill spring.
God bless

Do you mean you are storing the truck until Spring? If so, do you plan on exercising it every now and then (at least to keep parts lubricated and tires flexing)? I have heard that should be done when storing a vehicle long term (over 30 days).

I'll..............

start it every now and then. I'm blessed to have a walkout basement with a garage door to store my truck. It never gets any colder then 60 degrees.

Ok Greg sounds like you got it bad buddy. By the way really nice setup you have there. Looks like a lot of fun. Welcome aboard by the way.

Looks like you enjoy a similar set up to what we have. :D
28' ft. Sunline, about 8,000lbs fully loaded with a 900lb hitch weight.
Since this pic was taken, I have added a set of SuperSprings, which keeps the rear about 1.5" higher.
Our Titans are awesome tow vehicles!

Roadtripper..................

Nice truck and great color choice!! LOL
Now tell me, do you use overdrive and will it stay in overdrive on flat roads? What about MPG while towing? I only get 7.5 to 8.5 while towing but I dont use overdrive. I've tried to use it but as soon as I put it in overdrive my speed starts to drop. Then when I try to maintain speed and push down on the gas even a little it down shifts. Maybe I have a different rear end ratio with the off road package.
Looking forward to your answers

Thanks Greg, I don't use the overdrive while towing. I tried it on one trip while in Florida since it was so flat. While in overdrive the trans temp went up quit a bit so put it back in 4th, temp went back down right away. Your mileage is about the same as what I get. I want to install a cat back system and a K&N cold air intake setup soon which should help some. As for the rear gear ratio, the big tow and off road package both use the same rear ratio (ours is 2wd, big tow, & off road) which is steeper then the non big tow or off road package vehicles. I don't recall what the the ratios right now, maybe after I finish this cup of coffee my brain will perk up some.
