Could not muster more than 30-35 MPH on our 55 mile one way trip. I read reviews before I bought and would like to thank Jeeplj8. He recommended not towing this with a 1/2 ton. I believed my RV dealer and bought it anyways. After Memorial Day weekend I parked the camper and decided I would never tow with that truck again. Pulled the trigger a week ago on a 2500 Ram 2500 CTD and could not be happier. I sit hear at the camp ground tonight with the kids after the easiest tow of my life. We had similar if not stronger winds and never even knew it was back there. If you own one or are thinking of owning one make sure you have at the very least a 3/4 ton. My wife even commented after I got set up how much better a mood I was in. I will add we looked at a few 5'ers OK with stepping up to a bigger TV and loved this floor plan. We still love it and would not have bought another TT but it was to much for our 1500. Sorry to ramble on but felt like if our experience could help someone else out it should be shared.
Glad you stepped up, and great choice on the truck!!
I made the decision years ago to go from a 1/2 ton based SUV to a 3/4 ton and my wife was vehemently against it at the time. But after a few 8 hour trips in the new truck she was completely sold.
Pulled ours this weekend for our first family float trip. Had some pretty intense storms coming home. When I look in the back seat at my son asleep (that diesel engine just puts him out) running down the road in 30-35 mph wind gusts, I would not trade my truck for anything.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
