We are going to buy a fifth wheel at the end of next month. Our towing vehicle will be our 2002 F350 extended cab dualie. All the dealers at the RV shows say we can pull anything but I think we're only legal to pull up to 14,000. At the Last RV show we fell in love with a 2012 Forest River Sierra 365SAQ but it's around 12,000 lbs just in dry weight and we're afraid once fully loaded it will exceed the 14,000 lbs we can tow. Any thoughts? My husband is really concerned about the weight issue and it's making him think we should look into lighter weight fifth wheels. His choice, if we can't get a Sierra, would be a new Keystone Montana High Country 333DB. I've only seen it in pictures but the bunk room looks to be cramped & it doesn't have a king bed option
. It is about 2,000 lbs lighter though.
Approx. How many pounds of stuff do you generally carry for long trips? We will be spending a month or more at a time in our RV.
Do you often get pulled over & weighed? If so, what happens when you are over weight?
What are you all allowed to tow & how heavy is your trailer?
