I Tow a 35˝' Travel Trailer. Roughly it's just shy of 8,000lbs unloaded. I guess is usually its about 9,000lbs loaded depending how much junk we pile in it. GVWR is just shy of 10,000lb. We just bought it in March and have been on 7 camping trips with it anywhere from 300+ miles from home to 20 miles from home (NY, PA, NJ, DE). Next year we will go a little further. Maybe down the East Coast.

2004 F250, Super Cab, 8' Bed, 6.0L Powerstroke

Nothing on a regular basis. A few uhaul trailers when moving....and:

One of the first times towing with my truck....towed a company F150 from our jobsite in VA to the office in Pittsburgh. That trip sucked....truck on the trailer wasn't balanced well at all. Couldn't go faster than 55mph without the trailer swaying like crazy...no way around it though.

And most recently....went down to MD to pick up my sisters car after she wrecked it into a jersey barrier. Damage is on the drivers side....

This is my little lake boat. It weighs less than 1000 lbs.

And this is my 1968 18' Aloha travel trailer, which weighs around 4000 lbs.
