    Can I safely tow this loaded cargo trailer PLUS keep our camper in place?

    Yes the weight includes me, and only i would be going on the trip i have the upper TorkLift StableLoad so the overload spring (top one) is always in action. a bit. stock wheels and tires BUT they are the E range tires to get the higher lb capabilities. as built. SRW. no other mods. thx

    Can I safely tow this loaded cargo trailer PLUS keep our camper in place?

    great idea indeed. and not a huge hassle. however probably stripping 400+ (?) lbs out of the truck camper before departing would be better in some ways overall. To Be determined. :)

    Can I safely tow this loaded cargo trailer PLUS keep our camper in place?

    Thanks. Really good info. Yeah the cargo trailer uHaul rents is a bit bigger and heavier than I need for my 250 cu feet / 1800 lbs cargo, plus as it is 1 way, if I get in a jam at pickup from uHaul I'm stuffed. if i take the empty trailer with me, then i'll be far more set. much to ponder...

    Can I safely tow this loaded cargo trailer PLUS keep our camper in place?

    Thanks. I think the solution is for me to remove every non-essential piece of camping gear, plus remove the 2nd propane bottle, the MaxTrax, the water from the 2nd tank, the exterior stove, etc.... (will be easy, as I'll be alone) and hopefully gain 400+ lbs . I'd re-weigh to double check. :)

    Can I safely tow this loaded cargo trailer PLUS keep our camper in place?

    We are so lucky - zero bump steer on our 2020.... dont know why. Basically the same truck I believe.

    Can I safely tow this loaded cargo trailer PLUS keep our camper in place? Pardon my ignorance but I want to do this safely and figure this out. I’m sure the wise people here can guide us. Yes, I’m aware that the door stickers “cargo” is referring to what is IN the truck, not including...

    F350 where do I jack from? / would this plan work?

    F350 where do I jack from? / would this plan work? Hi all - first truck, so learning as I go. So I don’t want to spend a ton of $ on a high end jack… I picked up this 6,000 lb capacity jack - Powerbuilt 620471 Unijack - (Rig weights 11,300 lbs loaded) The jack has a height range of 11...

    Can I use 2 MaxTrax to drive up 9” (90 degree) vertical curb?

    Oh man... i KNEW I should have bought a Sherp ATV instead! ;-) but how will I mount my pop up camper on it? :cool:

    Can I use 2 MaxTrax to drive up 9” (90 degree) vertical curb?

    Dont want to piss off the construction workers..... this is right by our home and the workers have all been super cool. Have never driven our new truck up a 9" curb.... just looking to learn. Lots of great ideas here. Much appreciated. :)

    Can I use 2 MaxTrax to drive up 9” (90 degree) vertical curb?

    Yup you are correct Trae :) but given how rough the dirt is there (and it is going onto a busy street, that is now one lane) i figured that throwing down MaxTrax would be faster to do, and faster to remove..... but perhaps I am just being chicken..... or maybe i am being a dumb chicken...

    Can I use 2 MaxTrax to drive up 9” (90 degree) vertical curb?

    (Insert Ford jokes here) ;-) Thanks for the thoughts... so in other words - maybe I just go into 4x4 LO and slowly drive up and out ? :) thanks.

    Can I use 2 MaxTrax to drive up 9” (90 degree) vertical curb?

    Can I use 2 MaxTrax to drive up 9” (90 degree) vertical curb? So I need to move my F350 (4x4) with camper on it, (total weight about 11,000 lbs) out of a driveway that is under construction, and there is a 9” lip blocking my way out. (see pics) I own one pair Max Trax (so 2 MaxTrax) Pardon...

    Very happy with Hallmark during the whole order and customizing phase.

    it is my understanding that the rear camper mounts are done the best possible way, by Hallmark. They know the trucks (and their campers) super well, and i trust them. for what that is worth. They are super aware of changes to the F350 frame.... and how their fiberglass / carbon fiber / wood...

    Very happy with Hallmark during the whole order and customizing phase.

    Yes - after a bunch of research, i bit the bullet and bought a Ford OEM tailgate camera, new, from a Ford dealership in CA, (maybe about $250 shipped? I forget. Ouch) and also the proper wire (fiber optic, i am told) from Camera-Source.com I think it was. Usually they dont sell just the fiber...

    Very happy with Hallmark during the whole order and customizing phase.

    Drives beautifully. Rock solid. about 12 MPG cruising at 70 mph in varied terrain. ZERO porpoising. It drives like a big car. Piece of cake. Even my better 1/2 loves driving it. Tons of pickup.... tons of power. Keep in mind we bought a F350 SRW, with the max payload option, (custom ordered)...
