My junk n' stuff - towing and hauling
 
I like pics and I love my new toys. All this stuff is new to us within the past month or two. All ready for the summer, now the weather just has to get nice :). Doesn't stop us form 4-wheeling though!

The camper is custom built to hold the 4-wheelers in the front. There is a 65 gallon water tank in the back for hosing them down or taking a shower or whatever.

Think I need a leveling kit? Oncoming traffic was flashing me because they thought my brights were on last night when I had the camper in tow. What should I do about a leveling kit?

First day with the truck!

Buying the camper from the previous owner last weekend. They were nice enough to show us how it all worked a the truck stop.

She bought this 185 Bayliner last month but it's still in storage. The dang lake is still frozen :doh: One more thing to pull!

you are using your truck like it should be used, don't put a leveling kit on the truck
get a better hitch setup or load lever rear shocks
here are some choices, i let people that tow a lot tell you what they use

That's an awesome set-up! I love riding 4 wheelers and going out on the lake on our boat. My dad used to have an old Bayliner just like that but he's worked his way up to a 2008 Crownline 252EX. It's freaking huge. I'll throw some pics up of what we've got toys-wise.

The new Crownline and my dad's 2500 Mega Cab

Awesome setup. Really like the dual purpose setup for your trailer.

Thanks for the comments and pics!

@gtYankee - thank you I'll check that link out and do more research.

It's a good first step for us I think. Eventually we'd like to upgrade to a full frame camper. For the guy that had the Renegade... it caught on fire?! I like the looks of the Can-Ams and I'm sad to hear that they have issues.

Yeah we had just bought it and took it out on the trails and as my dad came around a corner he some how rolled and it was on fire within seconds. He doesnt really remember much about how it happened because he got knocked out when he fell. We researched online and found that in 2009 there was recall for a problem where the quad would just automatically turn left for no reason and that's what my dad thinks happened. We still don't know why it caught on fire.

here is our rig with the old truck haven't towed with the new truck yet. you might need to get a weight distribution hitch to level out the load

Very nice! We'd like to upgrade to something that size next year or the year after.
