Is it easier to hitch and unhitch versus a bumper pull?
Ease and or difficulty backing in?
Pin weight? any concerns and did you make any changes to your tug?
How did you calculate overall payload of your stuff and Pin weight?
Towing, any insight here would help me just be more patient till my winter build date.
Hope you all are enjoying your rigs and we look forward to hearing about your experience

Hi: Don W... I'll take a stab at some if not all of your ??'s.
#1... Much easier to hitch IMHO!!! Wife pushes the up/down buttons, I aim the tug.
#2... Dual axle seems much easier to reverse into my driveway...off the street.
#3... No weights yet, but the truck didn't squat as much as our 5.0 made it. Adjustment to hitch plate only, dropped one bolt hole.
#4... Not done yet. Refer to #3
#5... Towing a 5th. wh. IMHO is far superior to a bumper pull. Weight directly over the rear axle!!! Minimal loss of length due to bed loft over truck. Alf
