390QSMB- What are you towing it with?

We are looking at purchasing the 390 QSMB Coachman Chaparrel. This is a large 5th wheel. What are you pulling it with? How does it pull?

Looking online, its UVW rating is only 400 lbs less than our trailer, though it's GVWR is 1000 lbs less than ours.

Thus I would guess you are in the 350 SRW (for modern trucks) range. We were just over weight with a 350 SRW and went DRW. But we "possibly" run 1000 lbs loaded more than you.

Shouldn't say this but I'm towing with a Ram 1500 Crew Cab with the 5'6" bed. I installed Firestone airbags. It pulls fine but I live in very flatland, I would recommend a 2500
