    The wife and I just started to get the TT ready for summer. We head out for a 3 day weekend on Thursday night. Last fall I bought a small window unit to put in where there was none in the upper bunk in the back. Sure brightens the bunk up and will give additional airflow when parked at a none electrical site. Show your rig towing...-img_1993.jpg Sorry for the sideways pic. One of these days I will figure out how to get them to load properly.

    this 14' enclosed trailer is what I borrow from work occasionally, usually to help friends or family move. It's empty in the pic so tongue weight/load distribution comments are moot, but I keep an eye on it and adjust when loading to keep it as level as possible. It is a noticeable load on the truck (even empty), but it pulls comfortably and confidently. I get 13mpg pulling this thing empty or loaded, but my coworker with a 6.2L chevy got 9mpg so I guess I'm still winning.

    The truck is a 2015 bighorn, crew cab, 6'4" bed, completely stock

    Wife and I and our 2 dogs went out for a 3 day weekend. Here is a pic all loaded up.Show your rig towing...-img_2012.jpg

    Wish I knew how to get the pics right side up instead of rotated.

    Wish I had seen this earlier. In the history of Ecodiesel usage this just might be the largest tow job ever seen behind/on an Ecodiesel. How the heck does that wiggle wagon work? Even the boat is an I/O with a heavy motor inside.

    Tell me if your Ecodiesel handles this "train" well. What a surprise.

    I've seen a setup like that before but can't imagine towing that through a busy town or tight mountain roads. Getting fuel I guess would have to be truck stops only.

    My truck & trailer is somewhere around 55 feet and that's enough for me.

    What is the total length of your setup??
    Do not rule out working with your hands, but it does not preclude using your head.

    I love this truck! 14 MPG with about 7k load
    Cools pics thanks for posting.

    Towing mpg means nothing without context. My truck also has ECM & transmission tunes and 3.92 gear. Mine also averages14.0 mpg towing most double axle box TTs at 65 mph (2,100 rpm in 7th) on the Interstates. 14.2 with an aero nose, 15s if it’s an Airstream.
