Currently we just have an enclosed trailer that we have set up mainly to transport bike, but is use a a weekend sleeping area. We are not ready for a full time live in type trailer, so the Work and Play trailers have really been attractive lately. Decent area for bike, enough living area that you could stay a week at a time, and can be purchased very reasonable priced used

I used to have a Balboa which was very similar to the Work N Play but I think the Work N Plays are nicer they seemed to be finished off better than the Balboa's http://www.miragetrailers.com/balboa-rv-toy-hauler.html.

Looks very much like the Work and Play. That type of trailer appeals to me more than the full time live in trailers for the type of usage we will get out of it, plus I like the fact that it could still be used as a regular cargo trailer if its needed for that

Yellow, check out these. http://aluminumtoyhauler.com/  Kathy and I looked at these but the one she wants will end up being to heavy for our half ton, they are really nice just like the work and play.

From what I can see there I really like those. Just from the pics and the specs, they look like they could be a better built trailer than the Work and Play. I need to see if there is a dealer for them somewhere in my area for a first hand look. Thank you

I like those, and they seem to be a bit better built than the work and play version.

You can order a three season package which insulates the underside so it keeps the water lines from freezing. We would have the 28' with the front bedroom if we had a bigger truck. Kathy and I spent an hour at the dealership talking about it but the weight of it with the bikes I decided was to heavy for our 1/2 ton. It is still the trailer we keep talking about, maybe some day.

That is the one I really like from the web site.  I plan to find a dealer and go look.  I am thinking it should be ok with my 1/2 ton.  I have the Max tow package, which states 11,700 pound trailer wight. and a 1740 truck payload.  They state and estimated 5440 weight, I figure with generator and a few options 6000 pounds. Plus a road glide special and a CVO road glide would be 7800 pounds.  Add a 1000 pounds of stuff and Ill be right at 9K.  Not sure I could add 1000 pounds of food drink and clothes.

Our 1/2 ton is rated for a max of 9600lbs. On their website it states that a 28' with the bedroom loaded will probably max out a 1/2 ton. If you do find one would love to know how it works out for you.

Ya its a tuff nut to crack pulling the trigger on brand new trailer and a new truck at the same time.  Some years ago I purchased a diesel pick 4x4 Rams all of em ('93 and 06') and now again in '17 once you get one that first one you won't go back and hence never limited to what you choose to pull behind.  I would look at replacing your truck first then look for a hauler.

Something you might look at if they still exists would be an equilizer hitch if you are that close to weight. I have not used one in years but had one on a old 70 model half ton and it pulled a way to big trailer for many miles with no problems. But keeping the trailer brakes in working order was a must. It could get you through till a new truck was in the picture

I have a wieght distribution hitch with sway control and a brake controller. Pulled a 27' travel trailer about 75 miles to the family's site at a camp ground. The truck did ok considering I didn't know the 35 gallon fresh water tank was full and not having towing mirrors. I will be buying a set of towing mirrors and IF we found a toy hauler probably also buy a set of air bags to help with the weight.
