Tracer 250AIR

Went to both the Boston and Providence shows and liked this floorplan. Anyone out there with one, or similar? What do you tow it with? We liked the floorplan and this onenis on our short list when we get the Ram 1500 Diesel.

We are awaiting delivery of this model. We traded in our 240 air for this floorplan. Its only a little longer/heavier then the 240 but the floorplan is great for kids etc. We will be pulling with 2014 Silverado 6.2L.

Thank you for the response. When you get it, can you post the yellow sticker (you can cut off or blur the VIN). I want to see what the CCC is on it. It looks to be a little lower than I hope for.

Looks like a nice unit ! I really like the 2014 Silverados. 6.2L is that the 2500HD?

Makes sense. The CCC is generally the carrying capacity of the axles plus the tongue weight.

Guessing here- they likely have the same axles. Your 240 is smaller and therefore lighter than the 250, so that means it has a higher carrying capacity.

I believe your right on the money. The 250 comes in about 600 pounds heavier on exact same platform which works out on the CCC almost exactly. Looks like I'll have to leave the wife at home!
