Thanks for all your input. I picked up my new Ram 3500 DRW today. I had the dealer install a B&W turnover ball w/companion hitch. The "gold" extended warranty offered to me at a very good price so I also got that. I don't usually go for extended warranties but with my employee pricing and the factory incentive I bit.
The downside of this story is that we traded our trusty Windjammer in on a new Redwood 36FL. Since they are manufactured by Thor Industries I no longer qualify as a F.R.O.G. member.
We really liked our Windjammer but it just wasn't built for full time RVing like the Redwood is.

Hi Elmer,
My fuel mileage depended on factors such as speed, wind and terrain. If I had level ground and not fighting a headwind and driving 60 mph I would get 9 or 10 mpg. When I got into mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee my mileage dropped to 8 mpg.
When I wasn't pulling the Windjammer, which was 90% of the time, I averaged 14.5 mpg.
Your mileage may be lower when towing than mine was but I know you get better than 14.5 in everyday driving.
Hope this answered your question.
