I'm gonna be pulling a popup too, powered by a lowly 3.4L. I pulled a popup forth and back using the powerhouse 22RE also.

You'll be fine, you'll be just fine. Enjoy the scenery and don't throw a rod.

progress is slow going...got new ignition switch in, adjusted clutch and brake drums, new t/s switch, adjusted wipers, gear reduction starter (makes a cool wirring noise), tires mounted to oem rims (hubcaps and all...thnks to timmbuck for letting me borrow a few until mine make it up from texs), and did a dry run on the popup so i'd have a clue what im doing.

popup is enormous. seems somewhat light in the slight moving around in the driveway.....cross fingers now.

need to do trailer wiring, brake controller wiring, weld up a couple of hoops for the safety chains, make a setp for the left side so i can get into the piggie, make up some tiedown points in teh back for the tire/tools.......gettign there....slowly, but surely.

20' popup?!?

Let me change my vote to Floyd Hill. That is one big popup. What, you got a kazoo band and a gerbil acrobatics team camping with you?
