Hey guys, I totally get HRL and welcome his critiques. And I so get where he's coming from. I need some one to keep me honest.

I just bought a 34 ft fifth wheel yesterday. Just so you know it weighs 8925 lbs. My 2013 f250 SD 4 x 4 pulled it just fine for the 200 miles I've driven it. No more living in hotels for me.

Are you running a Powerstroke or gas motor? And just so you know, I'm totally jealous of your recent purchase.

Sorry about the f*#d thing. I guess the f250 thing got me. I have the big gas motor. It's the 12mpg model. I have the tow package also. These 5th wheels have their own brakes. I like to set my gain so they pull just a little.

I just joined the group and have started on a 52 COE 5 window. Going to use a 1ton chevy single cab 4 speed. At first we talked about moving the cab. Now we are talking about moving the drive line and suspension to the original 52 frame. Considered these ideas in this forum. Hopefully it will be a safe truck to pull a fifth wheel camper in the future.
