Towed this to Maine this past Summer, can't wait until next Spring so I can see the difference the Gryphon makes, just ordered last week Plan on covering it up for the winter this coming weekend.

How well does your little F-150 tow that trailer? seems kinda big to me for a half-ton. how much does it weigh? just wondering, thanks for indulging my curiosity!

It handles the trailer pretty well. Doesn't weigh as much as you might think. The trailer is 5,800# empty and I probably tow it most of the time around 7,000#. The truck doesn't have any problems pullin the trailer but I am definitely maxing the GV of the truck because of the pin weight. Although it only takes about 15-20 lbs in the air helpers to level the truck. We usually take it on 4-6 trips per year, most of those are within 3 hours away. This years trip to Maine was about 15 hours = went through a lot of gas!

My toyhauler camping on the John Day River in Central Oregon:



And at Ft. Stevens in Astoria Oregon:



I can haul 3 full size quads + 1 in back of the truck or a 14' aluminum boat depending on where we're headed. We've had a lot of fun with it.
