lol, you may! BTW, what kind of antenna is that in the background? Looks like some kind of HF antenna?

Not sure what you mean. The picture with the hill is from I-70 in a Utah rest area and you can see solar panels on poles, and the other picture is from The Ranch (Escapee's Park) in Lakewood NM. It may be an antenna for the WIFI but don't know. It was so hot there that my one A/C could not even cool the trailer so we left after the first night and headed north.

OK, got it! I thought the one picture was taken at home, and the antenna was part of your workshop. But I believe you are correct about it being the WiFi, or something similar.

That a pretty heavy trailer. Your 2500 has enough CCC to handle the pin weight?

UVW is 12,015 lbs. we travel light for the most part. We only move it once every 3-4 months. I rarely drive without some kind of trailer behind me for the last 30 years. I know limitations. If I don’t like it, even though it’s rated, we will get a diesel. I just don’t want a diesel that’s the only reason I bought the 6.4

I wish everyone would forget the UVW or "dry weight". Those numbers mean nothing. Even when you get the trailer from a dealership you are already heavier than the dry weight and you will load it up when you get home......... The best weight to use is the GVWR...... Not complaining to anyone in particular, but it is something that triggers me...........

GVWR is maximum weight. That’s common sense. But, if you control your weight and add only 7-800 lbs, that’s not near GVWR. It’s actually only 20% of GVWR. I travel at about 800 lbs over dry weight with propane and batteries. Like I said I’ve been hauling skid steers and other trailers for 30 years including campers. If I had no towing experience I could understand your being “triggered”.
Half the people don’t even know how to load a trailer properly for weight distribution. I see these newbies in the ditch with their brand new shiny trucks and 14,000 lb rigs. I just shake my head.

Glad you are an expert at towing. At 41'11" and about 3,000 pound in the box you are going to have your hands full. That trailer is one ton dually territory. But, it's your choice. Have fun......

That is an amazing payload, my 2019 2500 with a 6.4L gas that I towed an Airstream with only had 2600 payload on the yellow door sticker. Pull it on the scales and AirStream was 9600 pounds and I was within 400 pounds of my max payload of the truck according to the CAT scales.

I have both bikes on the back of my fiver. I have a clamp on hitch that I put on then built a brace to tie it into the frame. I also have a camera on the rear that I can watch them and have not seen them move. Next year I don't think I am going to haul them around though. My wife won't use hers and I don't ride much by my self.
