Strange, I was not able to find anything stated like that in my manual...guess I missed it. I guess a lot of people are using their trucks for things that "should never be considered" or "are not designed nor intended for" lol

I find that very funny...one source states that the manual specifically says not to do something...but the person the sits in front of a computer all day providing live chat for 300 different companys and just runs questions in a search box says she cannot find anything on it so it must not be recommended...

BWT I am not agreeing or disagreeing with either...

It is what it is...and we all do what we do...but thank you for giving me a good laugh...

What melissa told me was also what the article I quoted earlier said. They both said GM doesn't list ratings for 5th wheel. The article went in to say one owners manual stated do not haul 5er.

As it happens....I saw one on the road last week with dealer plates...Cummins badge and all. It sort of looked dis-proportionate in the front end fender area. I'm sure it will do well but it looks much like a Chevy/ford inbreed. My opinion only.

As a 1st generation Titan owner, I sure don't want one. I think it's a very disappointing effort...
