We are getting ready to enter a new world of towing in about 6 to 8 weeks. We ordered a new 2013 5th wheel 31 foot long, I have been towing a 29 foot Fleetwood TT for five years then went to a 34 foot 2006 8314ss Rockwood TT for the last 6 years or so.....The info I need is what should I exspect between towing two different types of campers this is the first time with a 5th wheel. I would the Pro's and Con's on both sides of the fence.....Now I will give a little more info.....
THE NEW CAMPER:
The 5th wheel dry weight is approx 7,465 lbs and fully loaded is approx 9,995 lbs, it is 31' 8" long.
The 5th wheel is a 2013 Open Range "Light" and the model is an LF297RLS, and we bought this at the Hershey RV Show. " A Great Deal With Extras"
MY TOW VEHICLE:
My tow vehicle is a 2008 Vortec Max Heavy Duty 1/2 ton Chevy Pick-Up, 6.0 gas engine, Heavy Duty 4 Speed Atomatic Transmission and a 4:10 Rear.
The bed on the truck is 6.5 feet and it has an extended cab.
The trucks tow capacity is rated at 10,500 lbs, it has the heavy duty tow package and electric brake controller all installed from the factory.
Any Info Would Be Great and Thanks in advance.
