Our new Cardinal

We just purchased a 09 Cardinal 5th Wheel 3100 RK.
Lucky us it was never sold and we saved some nice money !





Taking our 1st trip next week and really excited!

Now you really should start shopping for more truck. BTDT and I am convinced that your 3/4 ton will not be nearly enough truck. Do your self a big favor and after loading it up for the trip go to the scales too.

It is plenty of truck as far as safety is concerned, but there is no denying it is NOT gonna be legal by the scales. I don't even think I would bother taking it to the scales lol. The 99-04 Superduty 350 SRW and 250 are literally the same truck less the 250s not having the extra overload leaf and brackets on the frame. I'm gonna leave it at that.

Beautiful trailer. How about some pictures of the inside?

Nice, Love the fridge access with slide in.

Ignore the weight police. Add a spring if needed and you have an F 350. minus the badge.
Mine pulls like a dream stock

I'm not the weight police lol

See my sig.

I was merely stating the obvious.

Oh and any spring that should be added should be air.

The OP did not ask questions about their tow vehicle. He/She only posted of their recent purchase of the 09 Cardinal 5th Wheel.

We will not go the route of the "Other Forum".

If they ask if their tv is appropriate, then give your opinion. Otherwise, congratulate them or don't reply at all.

NO. This is the only FR forum.

I mean the Other Forum. The one that will eventually cave in on itself.

If you're not familiar with it, the initials are rv.net
