I don't have but 26' behind me and I stayed west side and east and then north to visit Waterton a few years ago. I don't remember anything especially difficult... except we went with no reservations in peak summer. Still found a way to do it without too much drama. As long as you have a spot to park you are golden.

I have a TT with almost the exact same spec's as you. I took it from CT to FL (about 3k miles towing total on the trip) with a f350 SRW Crew 7.3L gasser. I have an equalizer 4 hitch as well. It towed with absolutely no issue, plenty of torque for the northeast and around 8.5mpg down in the flat areas in the south east.

The first 300 or so miles were a lot to get used to for me. I have towed trailers but never an 11k # kite. By the drive home, I was barely touching the wheel.

You and your family will have a blast!

I've pulled 8k trailers with a 1/2 ton locally which wasn't my favorite experience. Then my older motorhome south for the last 4 years pulling a car which was ok. At least everything went in the same direction when it got squirrelly[emoticon] Would like a little better towing experience than in the past. I have two choices. Rent a 24' (5000lb) and pull it 1/2 ton or rent a 3/4- 1 ton truck and pull the 37' with
it.
