It's an F-250. Diesel. I hauled a 23' ToyHauler with one dirtbike in the ToyHauler and two in the truckbed.

There was one "iffy" section last year where there was an off-camber drop off. Thought I was gonna lose the trailer off the edge for a second or two, but it worked out. I hope they're going to send the graders out there this year before the rally.

Either way, you not going to go real fast, but it shouldn't be a problem.
I agree. I'm planning on bringing the ToyHauler again. If you come via MiddleCreek and up past Penny Pines, to call that road "paved" is stretching the definition of a paved road. It's more like a 5 mile stretch of potholes and (climbing) switchbacks loosely connected by patches of asphalt.
