And just think, according to the manufacturer and most dealers, I have a 1/2 ton towable trailer!

I don't know if you are a ram guy or not but they where suppose to get higher load ratings on the new trucks, it might be something worth looking into. I also don't know if you are looking at new trucks either.

I'm surprised that you are having such a hard time finding a one ton short bed they are very prevalent everywhere I looked. I actually had a hard time trying to find a long bed one ton. I don't know exactly where you live in Texas but there is a dealer in Vernon TX, vernenautogroup.com, that has a huge inventory of trucks and they carry all brands. They have lots of short bed 3/4 and 1 tons.

From my understanding of the regs, the reason the 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks are what they are is because of DOT regulations. As was mentioned above, the 10,000 GVW mark puts you in a different class as far as what you can tow/haul so your insurance and taxes go up because they think you are going to do more towing/hauling on the highway then other drivers so the road taxes go up.

Take that for what it is worth.

I love the diesel, but my next truck will be a 3500HD

Hi Herk,
The 3500HD would you get a single or dual wheel? We were next to you at Goshen last year and I also got the self adjusting brakes from Lippert. How have they been performing? I am completely satisfied .
Thanks

Must be, that has to be the Mississippi River either looking from Illinois or at Illinois from Iowa.

Sorry, didn't see FT Turbs reply.
