We now own a 2012 Sprinter 327FLS. Drove 450 miles with my trade and 450 miles back with the new Sprinter. Everything went well. Come on camping season.

Congrats on your sprinter. Hope you like yours as well as we have liked ours. The only thing is I wish we didn't do the bunks. At least right now. We only have one child at home and a bunkhouse is an overkill somewhat. But my wife mentioned the other day about letting my daughter bring a friend camping with us from time to time, so I guess it will be better. We will probably trade up in another 4 years or so. Just depends.

WOW all I can say having towed with full sized regular box vans since 1978 (that's 34 years and close to 200K miles) and not the extended one you have I have decided my length limit at around 30 to 31' for the 138WB Ford van and at almost 36' for your trailer and over 1.2K over the max tow limit of 10K and 1K hitch wt you need to really watch your actual hitch wt. ... that is one big tail for you dog. I wouldn't tow that without a Pullrite with anything less that an extended or crewcab WB type vehicle.

Personally I would not try and tow that trailer with my heavier Diesel regular box length E350 unless I went to the 20K/2K Pullrite hitch system. Vans are GREAT TVs, but still have practicable limits and IMO you are past those with normal hitches.

Thanks for your concern Larry.I felt quite comfortable towing the TT 450 miles from the dealer. I set the dual cam up myself, not the dealer, and I have some tweeking to do as I go with more weight. With the wind I was dealing with on the way back, I could not have been more pleased with the handling of the rig. This TT is not any longer than the one I traded in. It is heavier and a few inches taller, which increases the windage. I upgraded my receiver, spring bars and gears in the van. I am ready to tow. I do not believe I will ever hit the gross weight of the trailer. I like to give the equipment I use, credit for doing the job for which I have bought it for.
