So, I recommend a 1 Ton Dually Diesel.
Brand is just a personal preference.
I tow with the F350 Super cab 6.7 factory 5th wheel.
It is rear wheel drive only and made to tow
a fifth wheel or goose neck trailer on the highway. 12 MPG avg full timer loaded.

A one ton with the training wheels! Brand doesn't matter, but if you ask me...Ford F-350 dually is the way to go!

Shopping around

DW is in charge of where we purchase our next rig, since she is the comptroller of our little family's finances. WE decided upon the rig however. After some conversation with RV Nation, getting prices, apparently we're headed north when the time comes.

Less stress of where to put your head down at night, what to pack or not....heehee...just find a spot large enough to park.

During our road trips in the past 2 years, I think we must have stopped at every RV dealer around. We saw a 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS in GA that we liked better than other Rv's we've looked at, but was way out of our price range. Needless to say the internet can be very informative as I got on line and found a place called RV Nation in Hamilton OH and we think we really got a great deal from them. Saved BIG BUCKS! after talking with Ray Crain on our 2013 Cedar Creek 36CKTS, 38'. A big shout out to Ray Crain, Brian & Dave at RV Nation for their great help and expertise. It was a nice trip back from Ohio to TN. Then the snow hit the next day--WHEW! Thanks for all the help, especially the time and patience in showing us everything about our new RV, can't wait to make a first trip in it.
Congrats on your new Creek, your choice couldn't get any better, but heck I have one already. We are loving ours, which we bought through Stolfus RV in Adamstown PA. We camped 105 days last year & pulled her almost 12,000 miles. This year we hope to camp 135+ days. We already have about 8600 miles planned. Enjoy your Creek, hope to run across your trail in the near future.

Travel safe & enjoy your journeys!

Well Mikey you sure have topped me with the miles. We only did 6400 last year. However you can't beat days camped in the last year as we did ALL of em... LOL.

Congrats on the new CC. We are scheduled to take delivery of our 2013 36 ckts this weekend. We are new to 5ers so we are making a list of things we need to get. Going today to look at TV, yes, 1 ton, DW, diesel. Not sure of model yet, own a 2007 Chevy 1/2 ton truck now but will look a the ford also. The new 2014 will be out soon. May wait to see them. Good luck with yours.
