Not so much the long box, but the longer wheel base makes for a more stable towing platform. You also tend to get a smoother ride on choppy pavement. But you'll be using a weight distributing hitch, so it's probably a moot point.Is there any
advantage to having the long box for towing?
Yeah, toys, water(clean, grey and black), wood, food, propane, general supplies etc all add up to a lot of weight. And then the physical surface area of a big RV all really add up. I think I would plan like that, to be no more than 3/4 of my tow capacity once all loaded down. I am looking casually for my next RV, and as I like to go off the beaten path extra weight and size makes it difficult to get there.When i got my Diesel Canyon, i also sold my 32' Toy Hauler TT, then purchased a 23' TT tandem axle for a better suit to the truck.
My 23' Trailer is 5990 full load when dry camp, or 5490 when i don't fill tank, along with fire wood and gear in the back of the truck for stability. The diesel tows the trailer so effortlessly it is easy to see why a person would want to tow another 1000 lbs, but it was not so much the weight, but the length that can get awkward in high cross winds, or storm. If you need to tow 7500 lbs acrross town a few miles or up to the hunting grounds once a year, by all means the truck is fine. If your doing vacation trips that require unknown weather and lots of mountains, the size trailer i have now is just about perfect, safe and still lots of room and ammenities for "camping". :grin2:
