well now that im looking for a new tow rig im really looking at diesel excursions but my toyhauler is gooseneck.i could change it over to bumper pull but im not sure how it would ride.any input?
All bumper pulls disappoint after pulling with a gooseneck.i think even with a weight distribution hitch you're going to be really disappointed in how it pulls after being spoiled with a gooseneck.
all you guys are missing the point somewhat...the question is not wether or not a big bumperpull is possible... its more of wether its a feasible idea with the trailer pictured. i agree its completely possible to tow a long bumper pull,and as texas dick has demonstrated(prior to his conversion) its quite possible to build a flatdeck/camper bumper pull toyhauler.Not sure what you guys all complain about with the tag trailer, with the sleeper cab on the front I had 800# TW and w/ jeep would roll it up to 1500#, Some guys bairly load that much with a goose.
with my rig on it the trailer/load was about was about 9400 lbs. 2slo's rig is about 1200 heavier than my scout with will put him about 10,600. if all other things are equal the 2060 makes for 20% tongue weight.when i towed it with all my crap on the upper platform i had 5,060 on the drive axle,wich equates to 2060 lbs worth of pin weight.
