Yeah a little bit, it wasn't to bad loading up. I figured I could always find a low spot to unloa/load
Can you dump the air bags? Or is that pic with it dumped? Dumping the air would definitely help

Got one toolbox mounted, was going to put one on the other side, but one of my dogs cost me about $700. So I will get it after RBD then skirt it. Built a rack for the camper too.

I’d hang a cheap set of heavy duty mud flaps behind your boxes. If not the rock chips will start and you know what will follow that. Looks great btw. I’d drive that sucker to the grocery store :driving::dblthumb:

Well how was the trip in the big rig?

What was your overall mpg?

Also, what would you like to change on this setup?
It was good, rode as good as my f250, best I can figure about 8-9 mpg. Which is the same as the Ford, but I'm pulling a lot more weight. Once I get the tune cleaned up I think it will do a little better. Nothing I would change as of now, I will be glad to get the fuel cell built on it, so I don't have to mess with figuring out where to put my fuel jugs.

Good deal all around. I’m surprised your F250 got that bad of mileage with your old enclosed trailer. We get right at 13 for the Hawk Pride trip grossing right at 23k.

Any idea what your loaded setup weighs now?

Truck is around 16k, I think camper is 7k ish, buggy probably around 4800, then Tool, generator, etc.. My Ford got 8.4mpg last time I pulled the enclosed and it still had factory tires, I can't imagine what it would have got after I put bigger tires

My alumiduty sucks pretty bad on mileage, especially towing. it isn't deleted

Forgot about y’all’s trucks being stock so that explains the differences in mpg.
