All,
I have not really seen any bumper pull toy haulers at the track and I presume that's largely because the bumper pull versions all have garages too short for an SRF. Well, I found one and it's just downright awesome. Several folks came by at Sebring and loved it as well.
If you'd like information, feel free to drop me a line at dennystripling at gmail.
Mine is a 2012 Jayco Octane ZX. The car fits in it like a hand in a glove and I can put my wheels/tires on the top queen bed and just snug them up to the ceiling. So far (2800 round trip miles to Sebring) it's working like a champ and I love it.

Moral of the story: don't let a bumper pull tow vehicle stop you from getting an awesome toy hauler for your SRF!
(yes, yes I know that 5th wheel opens your options considerably, but I have one of those totally awesome wives who is totally not down with the idea of a pick up truck but loves the Excursion... we all have our constraints :) ).

What pickup truck do you tow your hauler with?

Hey roadglider, just now seeing this.
It's a heavy trailer, especially fully laden. I think I was around 9k with 100 gallons of water in it. I tow it with a diesel Excursion and would recommend something of that ilk (F-250ish... is that 3/4 ton? I think so).

Steve, yes. Yes I do.

I have heard good things about the Excursion.

I love mine, though it has the 6.0 Powerstroke so it was not without drama. A fair chunk of change later and I expect her to be near bulletproof for a long time. We will see.
