How much toy hauler with a 3/4 Sub

How big a toy hauler can you tow with a 3/4 ton Suburban? Looking at a 26' toy hauler that the Toyota race truck can fit into. Dealer is telling me I need a 5th wheel (probably cause he has many overpriced 1 ton p/u's on his lot to unload). Or is that much toyhauler with a toyota in the back too much for a hitch tow set up?

You would need a Class V hitch. A Toyhauler won't be able to much more than just the rig in the back. They're really meant for ATV's and motorcycles.

I would think that would depend on how much weight the toy hauler can handle in the rear and still keep some tounge weight..That maybe why hes trying to get you into a 5th wheel..Its seems to me if you vcan get you truck far enough foward into the hauler then the tounge weight wont matter and a class 5 would be fine with the suburban..
