:cheers: Yes, you can. I loaded 3 dirt bikes, a generator and cooler in the back with a bed extender and towed a 7k lb TT from Oregon to Utah and back.
She was made for this, man!

Yes i did! Maybe i'll make sure all passengers take a big poo before we head off! :jester:loufish said:The total weight won't be an issue(truck, load and trailer), but you could be overloading the trucks max weight rating...Of course you got the tow package with the higher payload rating right?
I toyed with whether or not to post because most people think I've lost my mind with what I do with mine! I tow a 2000 Fourwinds 32BH which weighs in at 8k. I don't have BT. My truck does just fine. Just because I push mine does not mean that I can in any way reccomend it. They weight limits and capabilities are listed in the owner's manual. I climb hills with mine through the Appalachian MTNs. Just don't be afraid to let the engine sing. Tow in 4, shifting to 3 as soon as the torque converter unlocks, this will flood the tranny with freshly cooled fluid and keep it happy. Don't freak out(as others have) when the guage climbs close to or at the mark before H. If it goes to that point, downshift and watch it drop!!!!!! This will prove the rush of cooled fluid. Our trucks are happy revving in the 3k to 4k range loaded out towards the max; thirsty, but happy!!cleoent said:Can I do it?
3 dirt bikes in the bed, 700 or so pounds. 3 people, 500 pounds, gear who knows plus a 5000 pound travel trailer... will my 08 CC BT LWB be able to handle it? My guess is yes. I just want to make sure i dont want to have the truck rip in half.
I dont know where to go to find out tow specs or anything, towing is not really a reason i got the titan, so never really researched it, oops
Is there a place that you can find the limits for all versions of our trucks, on my door it says 1929lbs with a GVW of 7200lbsRobKar said:Can you move the bikes to the trailer? if not you will be way overweight!
let me add this up for you:
TT = 400 lbs
Bikes = 700lbs
Gear = 200lbs
people = 500lbs
= 1800lbs OUCH
Move the bikes and you will be good to go.
I am glad that you live up there and don't get down to San Diego... NO BRAKE CONTROLLER????? not only are you not legal but in a panic stop you are deadly to you, your family, and the guy you run into. Pay the $100 and at the very least get a brake controller. Its not worth it even if the A$$ cut you off and you cant stop!cleoent said:I did it!
2 dirt bikes, 2 adults, 5000lb travel trailer plus full tank of water, gear and clothes for 6 people, food etc. Average about 8 mpg. I could tell it was there, but it was fine. About 60mph average speed.
BTW- did it with nothing except the standard BT package and a ball/hitch combo. No brake controller or anti-sway stuff.
