Default 230DS & 210WBS

Just joined, but have been reading the forum and the other e-mail group for a while.

I have been really looking at travel trailers for some time now and now that I have sold my motorhome, I will be getting serious.

I am so far enamored with the Fun Finders. I had my eye on the 210 WBS for a while, but have since discovered that the 230DS may fit my needs for a longer period of time.

Our tow vehicle is a 2003 Toyota Tundra extended cab and per the owner's manual has a max. tow capacity of 6,900 lbs.

I want to be sure that this truck will pull what I purchase very well.

Any comments on these two models matched with this tow vehicle?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome virtuigs, glad you joined our forum! You will not have any problems towing the 230DS with your V8 Tundra. The 230DS has a base empty weight of 3883 lbs, and with options, our 230DS weighs 4200 lbs, which would give a good safety factor plus cargo capacity. I would recomend a weight distribution hitch since the 230 has a fairly heavy hitch weight of 497 lbs without the propane tanks full, about 550 with propane. I have been using a 2006 Nissan Xterra equipped with a equal-i-zer sway control/weight distribution hitch to tow ours and the Xterra's 265 hp / 285 tq handle the job well. The tundra's 300+ tq at around 3000 rpms will work very well.

Let us know when you get it, we need more 230 owners on here!!
