    Raptor towing

    Has anyone towed a toy hauler if so, anything longer than 21' and how well does the raptor tow?

    I'm currently pulling at 24' camper. so far so good, the truck handles it great and the brake control on the truck is awesome.

    Towed my 24ft deck boat couple of times with it. 2-3 hours there and 2-3 hours back. Only thing I saw was the fuel gauge go down in rapid descent

    I have pulled my 24ft loaded to and from Mi and Va 2 tines... It needs a weight distribution hitch when you tow a lot of weight.

    Good to see someone towing with it. I bought the truck for towing 8000lbs. Haven't towed with it yet tho.

    Not that much but I can't imagine it to be tough with even more. I have a enclosed cargo trailer (not sure of the length) but it hauls my yamaha wolverine 450 and the yamaha TTR-225.
