I ended up buying the 250.. Along with a big warranty! We did test drive one f250 that had a programmer on it, and exhaust. Wow is all i can say! I did not pull the trigger on it because i know the warranty would be void, but it was very tempting..

A Honda Odyssey minivan has more payload than many half ton trucks. I would assume that some compact cars with a 5-6 person capacity would have a payload that rivals many half tons as well.

So...we need to steer folks in buying mini vans for TV'S instead of these fancy 1/2 ton bedazzled trucks the Big 3 keep telling us we need in order to dominate the streets! LOL (...a little humor for a Tuesday)

Yeah, that didn't seem right.... Until I went out the garage.

My Ram 1500: 1150 lbs payload
DW's Caravan: 1150 lbs payload

Don't let the DW know this. Otherwise she's gonna claim we can just pull the TT with her minivan and try to get me to give up my truck.

6 or 7 people in a van could easily exceed 1150 lbs. Let alone the rest of the cargo

Yep...that's why folks like myself & others take cargo/payload numbers with a grain of salt if we're or someone else is a little off the manufacturers listing

Hi: Its interesting what Forest River quotes for carrying capacity. Our 2014 T24RG Wildcat weights in empty @ 6,034 but has a cargo carrying capacity of 4,838. Me thinks after loading up with propane, chairs, barbeque Etc. and even empty tanks I would bring along a ton and 1/2 of groceries. Where would I store them? Our previous 28 foot bullet dry was 5,125 with a carrying capacity of 2465. seems something is wrong with this picture.

My 2010 F-150 5.4 seems to work just fine with either unit.
Anyone out there have problems with the Wildcat T24RG and an F-150 5.4 ?

So far i really like the 250. Better mileage and very comfortable. Plus we traded our TT for a 5th wheel. Our dealer made an offer we could not refuse. We got a Cruiser Aire by Crossroads.
