that is quite possible the most level, as in straight as an arrow I've ever seen anyone get their tow vehicle and trailer. Especially since you have a level surface pad. Wow!

I tow with a 2006 MB ML500 and a Blue Ox hitch. Benz specs:

Wheelbase: 115"
Curb Weight: 4,743 pounds
Gross Weight: 6,239 pounds

I'm curious as to whether this would be considered a small or medium size TV.

I don't know...I'm kinda wondering how all of these FULL sized pickup trucks are being classified here as "medium" ?

I just recently acquired a GMC Acadia, which the press refers to as a "full sized SUV". It weighs about the same as the MB. But I suspect a lot of folks here would think it to be tiny.

What a good looking rig! How does the King Rancher like pulling?
Also I must compliment you on how level everything is. Very well setup. (perfect)

Was in your country last winter for a bit and may very well be back there again next winter as we like it north of you in the hill country.

Cheers
Doug

Doug,
Look us up this winter and join us on a Rally in the Texas hill country. We are with the Texas Alamo Unit, Region 9 WBCCI.

The King Ranch F150 handles a vintage 1985 31' Airstream like a dream.
Warren

Same TV as the "show us your small setup" thread. But the TT has gone from a single to a double axle, so I'll self-upgrade from small to medium.

I have been towing our 66 Caravel for 2 1\2 years with this 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan. The van has been a great tow rig. I get between 13-18 mpg. I towed the AS before with a 2002 Chevy 3500 van. The Chevy's ride was rough and the the best I got was 14 mpg. The ride is great and smooth in the Caravan.

According to most of the 3/4 ton and 1 ton truck owners in this section of the forum; us 1/2 ton owners don't have fullsize trucks. We're medium.

I never felt like my E150 van was Medium, but I guess it is compared to some things...
