Thanks, I'll take a look at this.lovemycolorado
For us, streetmeds trailer would be a literal and figurative drag to tow on long trips, with our 2017 Z71 CCLB. We towed our 2017 21' Escape 5.0 ta, with the light Anderson bed hitch over 17K miles this past year. For 2, wanting plenty of room, smart layout, and both easy towing and construction that lasts several times longer than stick built trailers, we put our money where our mouths are. Also turnable in our son's small Castro Valley Cal cul de sac. They make bigger f'glass trailers (Oliver. Bigfoot), but you're into F150, 3.5l eco boost territory there.
Guarantee you, no bird dog to us to pass this along. Just an idea...
What kind of mileage are you getting with that trailer?We did a 7500 mile trip this summer across country pulling a camping trailer that was rated at 6000 pounds. I definitely knew it was back there when going up inclines. I was able to keep up with traffic, maintaining speed but not enough power to speed up. Drove about 70 mph and average fuel was about 11 MPG. Driving slower would probably have been much better. This was a rented trailer and if I were by 1 I would like to keep it under 5000 pounds. Most of the trailers are rated as empty weight so once loaded and with a full water tank the weight can be considerably higher.
