3/4 Ton

Anyone hear any discussion of a 3/4 ton model in the near future. I have an in the bed camper by North Star model #650 dry weight about 1,850 and I tow a 17' aluminum boat so i'm already over the weight and we are looking to upgrade to a larger camper in the near future.

Its all about getting the right tool for the job. As much as I love my Tundra, I would not allow brand loyalty to tempt me to put me or my family's safety at risk. If you need a ton, well.....you know the drill.

If you need a 3/4 ton just add air bags LOL, JK. Yep, if you are pulling/hauling that much a bigger truck is a MUST!!! As far as where to go that's up to you what emblem you want...or well you could always debadge it anyhow LOL.

Some say the Tundra is a 3/4 ton with 1/2 ton suspension...its still a 1/2 ton doesn't matter what running gear it has if it is only riding on a 1/2 ton suspension LOL.

I wish they'd come out with a 3/4 or 1 ton option, don't think it would take much with these trucks they get crap for fuel economy anyhow so in reality you could drive a 3/4 or 1 ton and get the same mileage LOL.

I just hit 100k this year with my 08 tundra so I've got several more years yet before I need a new truck LOL. I don't do much towing/hauling anymore so a 1/2 ton is fine with me, but if they do come out with a 3/4 ton I'd seriously consider opening the wallet.

Not at the prices they want for a 1/2 ton truck they aren't going to sell very many. Same goes for Toyota, if they do get in the HD market and price their trucks as ridiculous as Nissan has the Titan no they won't sell...or rather they will sell because people are dumb enough to pay those ridiculous prices. If they build the truck they will sell them, just not to the people that really need them as they're priced out of the budget of many.

Well, just to be clear, a Titan XD is still a ton. Had they done a real , my guess is they would be selling better.

classified as a 2B, due to GVWR, that puts it in the 3/4 class regardless of what the media or Nissan say. It unfortunately as the Payload of a Halfton and price of a Maserati

I could sure use a little more towing capacity. My 14' Limited is rated at 9900 lbs. The new travel trailers were looking at are in the 6500 - 7500 dry range. I'm just afraid when loaded 7700 to 8700 lbs. it's a little too much. Right now we tow our 26' RV at 5500 to 6000 lbs loaded (wet).

Towing I get 11 mpg towing a 26' RV trailer. I'm OK with that. If I get a good tail wind I'll get high 11's, get a head wind and I'm toast (9-10 mpg)

It's crazy what people are paying for trucks. At some point their going to run out of rich people to sell trucks to. In our area I do see a lot of sales on new 2016 Dodge Rams. Every year there seems to be a big carry-over of new Rams with prices slashes $10k + off MSRP

Put the camper on a diet. Cheaper to lighten the load than replace the truck

Try telling the wife that....have looked at Arctic Fox RV trailers which are built super strong, but are very heavy. Going to Yellowstone and will look at Ourdoors RV trailers out west. Don't really sell them east of Denver. I'm happy with the 2013' RV, but would like a non-hybrid RV for more off-season camping

I had a standard camper 25' queen bed, couch bed and dinette with kitchen. No slide and was 4400 dry. A friend has a 27' queen bunk with mini slide and dry is 4700 #.

With sine research you can find plenty in a nice weight rating.
