Default New to me 2007 2720

Just got back from Houston 2 hours ago with my 2720 that has the queen bed, double bed, and dinette coversion bed. About a 3.5 hour trip to S. Texas, and my first gen Tundra pulled it well. I learned alot about towing which I don't have a whole lot of experience with. Truck seemed happy around 2300 RPM whether in 4th or 5th gear (controlled with O/D button). Easily cruised between 65 and 70 mph, with more RPM to spare. But only hit 75 to pass. Thanks to this forum, I had two new tires put on by the dealer, and also greased my hubs at a rest area. Going to give it a good scrubdown tomorrow. Then already have a camp reservation set over labor day weekend for its first shakedown cruise. Looking forward to making memories in it.

Nice set up with the Tundra. That's what we pull with although my 3124KB is a little heavier than the 2720. I've pulled mine out west to Sedona AZ from Houston and east to the Fl. Panhandle. One of most memorable trips was to Big Bend, Spring Break Weekend. Pulls with ease and get decent fuel mileage at 14.5 MPG in the 62-65mph.

We also have campsite reserved for Labor Day weekend in the Hill Country on the San Marcos River. Maybe we will see you guys camping somewhere one day.

Enjoy..

Thanks for all the welcomes.

MB, being that the speed limit here in TX is 75 mph, I didn't have to make too many passes. Most people are going 5 over that.

BG, not so much an issue of what the speed limit is. It is more a question of how an unknown rig and tv handle and work together especially in an emergency situation like a blown tire or a pedal to the floor need to stop. Flat, no traffic etc helps, but a lot can happen at 75 mph.
All the best,

To add to moaboy's comments, unless you have load range E tires, the top speed is 65 mph. I know from experience how exciting it can get when a car cuts you off at 65 mph when pulling a Trailmanor. It's the reason I LOVE my Andersen No-Sway weight distributing hitch. But, a big congrats on your new trailer....stay safe out there.
