We actually look forward to this time of year! Means the beginning of winter camping! Less people in the CG's, no bugs. Paradise. We've been avid winter campers for over 10 years now. We absolutely LOVE it. I'll take a campsite in Jan in the snow any day over a crowded noisy CG in July, We are lucky in that there are a few year round campgrounds within a few hours of us in the frozen north.

Sounds like a great idea.

Hey Dexter82! I think that we have very similar truck / trailer combos. I have a 2012 LaCrosse 308res that I pull with a 2012 ram 1500 hemi 4x4 with a tow package and 3.92 gears. I have been happy with the setup although from what I read, most folks would tell me that I don't have enough truck. My only drawback to me is the frequent fuel stops due to tank size when getting 8-9 mpg. I was just wondering about your experience with this combo.
Oh, by the way, Ram specs list my truck at 10,050 lbs tow capacity as equipped.

Ya got the same specs. Truck got lots of power and hauls great. But same gas mileage. I figure it around 45$ per hour. I'm gonna be trading it for the new dodge Eco diesel. A friend has one and get 15 to 18 hauling a 7000lbs trailer and 30mpg around town

Thanks for the reply. I'm glad to know that our mpg is about the same. I debated a long time when I bought my truck about going to a 2500 diesel, but just could not justify the extra $10,000. or so. Also from what I heard the pollution controls had taken a toll on the diesel's mileage. $10,000 will buy a lot of gas.

If you trade up, please post the results of the new Eco diesel. It would be great if they found a way to get decent fuel mileage in our sized vehicle.
