      It depends on the tongue weight. I pull a motorcycle trailer behind the camper with no problems at all. Can't tell it's back there. I never weighed it, but I estimate it to be just over 1,000 lbs with 100 lbs on the tongue. The boat will be closer to 3,000 with about 300 on the tongue. Not sure. That's why I weighed the empty trailer. Always thinking ahead.
      The truck can pull it. I just don't want to over tax the frame.

      The tag axle has electric brakes. It helps with stability and stopping.
      That truck looks like something I would build, F'n Tag
      axle... are we separated at Birth?

        • Just saw your build thread. Motivating... Taking an old boat from a garden to a usable boat! Not sure where you are located , but I pulled a 3.0 OMC from my current boat, cobra drive . all of it. Might be willing to trade it off for a good cup of coffee.Going 5.7 merc .. don't need any of the 3.0... You are pretty far along to modify into a dual 3.0.... but glass is cheapish...
          Keeep building, notice the negative posts in the beginning kinda dwindled out... Loving the truck also!

            I may take you up on that if opportunity allows. I'm in Laurel, Mississippi... only 774 miles from Columbus, OH. It could happen.
