Nice rig Savage. Wow, with both rear slides out that thing needs it's own zip code.

Three kids and no ATV's on camping trips. Too many other things to do when we are camping. There are two trips planned with both. One trip is close and I will have to make two trips. We'll have to figure that out.

Or get your wife a vehicle that can tow your atv trailer! We have taken our boat with us camping a few times. Wife towed it with my work van or the Grand Cherokee we used to have. Looking for a new SUV for her now and am keeping this in mind. Really wanted the new Ecoboost Explorer Sport coming out this fall but it's only rated to 5k like the regular Explorer.

She would need more power than that...our ATV trailer is what prompted the move to my truck. The 1/2 ton gasser wasn't getting it done. The 5th atv really does present a challenge logistically. The enclosed trailer is not something on willing to budge on either. I like everything pack in safe and secure and out of eyesight. We are going to ride out this year and possibly next and see how much use we actually get out of both and take it from there.

Really, what kind of truck did you have? Our Grand Cherokee Hemi pulled our 30+ foot trailer and boat coming in at around 6500# like it wasn't even back there. Awesome tow vehicle. Should have never traded it.... I hear you on enclosed. We only used an enclosed sled trailer and bought our toyhauler for the same reason.

I "think" it is around 2800lbs, but I need to have it weighed at work to be sure. It might be a little while, but I'll get it.

They also say the dry weight was 11,340 and it was closer to 12,800. I don't believe anything they publish. All I know is what an actual scales reads...
