I have the 3850 model which is the same size and weight. I pull mine with a dodge 3500 w/Cummings diesel. Dually is not needed. Same engine and can handle the weight of the camper.
That said, I am very disappointed with the 2013 product that has been put out. My camper was purchased in March 2013. I have had it out camping only 4-6 times this season due to continued problems through out the camper. A punch list is certainly common when buying a new camper, however I fear that the lack of quality that is coming from the factory has dropped off. My campers black and grey tanks were mis labeled and did not drain properly. As a result, they grey tank had to be replaced b/c it swelled and leaked underneath ruining all the insulation. Certainly could have been avoided if installed properly from manufacturer.
I have also had wiring issues. After troubleshooting an alarm issue with my propane alarm, I found some wiring connected to the propane alarm that was exposed in the camper. CERTAINLY A FIRE HAZARD! THANK THE LORD I FOUND IT!
This is the second Forest River product I have owned and had a great experience with my first one. Unfortunately, I fear the attention to quality, detail and customer service has dropped off.
