Hi,

We use a 2017 Toyota Tundra Limited with the 5.7L motor and a 4.30 rear end to pull an Aerolite 294RKSS which is about 6800 dry or 7500 lbs loaded. Haven't had any problems and haven't bumped up against its limit.

Not going to win any races. Took me a while to get use to the fact that the RPMs have to stay up (way up) pulling hills. I came out of a motorhome with a 454, T400 that pulled pretty effortlessly.

What's your tow vehicle and what's your thoughts about it?


Tow approx 7000 lbs with 2014 Nissan Titan does ok, always use tow mode and 3rd gear up hills. I stay between 60 to 65 mph

I tow about 6000lbs with an ‘88 Ford E250 IDI Diesel. Work decently as it sits, but it will be nicer once I install the turbo kit I have sitting in my garage.

I have a Ram 2500 MegaCab with the 6.7 liter diesel. My trailer is a 13,000 lb 5th wheel Voltage Toy Hauler that when loaded is probably 15,500. The truck has no issues towing my 5er and everything works great.

I know I am at the limit as far as combined weight and towing capacity based on my truck’s ratings but you wouldn’t know it by how it drives. Exhaust brake is amazing and the Cummins engine is a work horse! Never gets hot.

I am really happy with this setup.

I pull a 3895 Voltage around 20k loaded with a 2011 F350 6.7 King Ranch SRW, Bully Dog tuner, S&B Intake, MBRP filter back, Air Bags and AFE intercooler tubes. I have no problem with power but it is like the tail wagging the dog.
I have pulled it with a 2011 DRW and got better fuel mileage due to the lower gears. I would like to upgrade to a 2017+ F450 King Ranch in a few years.

Ours is 2001 GMC Yukon 2500

Even though the Yukon has 163,m miles on it it tows beautiful. It has a 411 rear which enhances 6.0 L engine.
Our new trailer is only 26 ft so it’s not much of test.
