It is prep with the 5th wheel package. I would think this would do the job very well. I would rather not have to get a DRW.
Any suggestions from those that have the same 5er?
If I only took the camper on a few trips a year I would stick with the SRW, a DWR has its good points but also a few bad ones, on the road I live on with a DRW I would have to be off the road on one side a lot, DRW are hard to park. Its hard enough to park a SRW, I don't even look for a spot up front, with a DRW it would be worse, the 350 Ford will pull the 36CKTS just fine, heck a Ford 150 would pull the camper just fine, A Ford F-150 is one bad truck. I am happy with my Silverado 3500 SRW diesel, DRW can haul more weight and might be more stable but I will keep my SRW.
