I've been living full time in my RV for about 15 years now.

Just kidding, I've only stayed in an RV a few nights but recently had a 8.5x20 enclosed trailer I had converted into a camper stolen so I'm using this experience to upgrade.

I have toys (2 out of 3 quads I own were in another city when the trailer was stolen) so a toyhauler is going to be my choice.

In doing my research I find that a 5th wheel seems to start a bit higher in the weight department than my truck can handle so that's out of the question.

I have a 2012 f150 with the ecoboost so I can pretty much tow anything out there and will probably never be going more than a couple hundred miles when I do travel with it as I am surrounded by great parks here in Florida.

I gave up my commercial drivers license a couple years ago so hauling a large trailer doesn't bother me and I still to this day look at bridge clearances after a fun experience in downtown Indianapolis where I had to back down a one way street with a semi about two blocks.

I'm basically trying to avoid buying a lemon or getting suckered in to a "lifetime" warranty like I found at Giant Recreation World(the only dealership I have visited so far).

I just want to educate myself so I'm here. I looked at a number of toyhaulers they had and found one that I love but know nothing about the manufacturer or the durability of it, nothing so I'm here.

2019 Xlr Boost 31QB

It's in my price range, it's got the features I want, so thoughts?

I'll hang up and listen.

Welcome to the forum You will find a lot of good information on the site.

I can't speak for that TT. But I will say that's a lot of trailer for your truck. And that's coming from a Ford Guy :)

Depending on exactly which truck you have I think that trailer is over your max towing by a couple thousand pounds and over max GCWR by probably 3000. Also, that's a very long trailer for an F-150
