Now you need a bigger 5th wheel as the tv really makes the camper look small. Talk about not noticing anything back there or being nervous about coming down steep mountain grades.......

No weight police comments either

One week old and haven't towed with it yet. We were supposed to go this weekend but an illness in the family forced us to cancel. I guess the first week of May will be its maiden voyage.

Sharp lookin rig. Is it a 2500 or 3500? Is it a Cummins? What made you decide to switch to a Ram?

Why haven't you singled it?
I follow HDTs over on Escapee's forum-are you over there, too?
I am on the Escapees forum. It is full height. I haven't singled because I just recently retired it. I was using it over the road.

This pic makes the fiver look small but it isn't. It is 39' and 13' tall from the front all the way to the back.

The truck is powered by a 550 horse Cummins ISX with a 13 speed transmission. Towing the fiver is similar to pulling an empty refrigerator van.

Mackman, it is a 2500HD and yes it is a Cummins. We were very happy with our Ecoboost and it did great hauling our Windjammer. We will be going to a fifth wheel sometime down the road and we got such an unbelievable trade in offer for the Ford that we just couldn't pass it up.
