Well if you get your unit and truck before Memorial Day, Hemet could be an excellent shake down trip! Think of all the ideas(expenses) you could get from the other members...

LOL, we're used to "ideas" costing us money. We're both scuba divers as well - PADI (put another dollar in). Seems like all of our "hobbies" are the ones that seem to cost the most! Might have to seriously consider Hemet as an option - we're hoping to have everything by then. It would be a great trip!

We have a Chevy Silverado Crew Cab 2500 HD Duramax/Allison that has as much or more room in it as any SUV we have owned. Back seat folds up or down. Also, being diesel, it fulfils the towing needs of any unit we may own in the future. Our cat and dog own the back seat. The bed can be used for extra spare tire, generator, jack, water cans, etc. Things you wouldn't put inside an SUV.
Go Big! You won't regret it down the road.

We travel with two dogs, a Cocker and 80# Airedale. I removed the back seat from my Ram 1500 Quad Cab, and even though it has a cargo floor, I cut a half inch sheet of plywood to place over it filling in the gaps (of the Cargo floor), then carpeting it. They've traveled over 10,000 miles with us.

Well, we did it! We bit the bullet and got ourselves into a 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 4WD Diesel something or other with the 8' bed. We've got the towing vehicle, now it's time to go get the trailer! Thank you all for all of your help. I didn't realize how much room was in the back seat of this tank! We could live in the cab of this truck! (Okay, maybe not, but there just seems to be so much room. Although no doubt that it'll fill up quick once we start packing.) Need a little time (couple weeks) to recover from the sticker shock and we'll be headed up to get the TT. LOL

You'll love your new truck. I have an 08 Ram 4 WD, 6.7. There is no problem pulling my 5er down the road at 70mph. You might think about a 5th wheel. They pull really easy. Their easy to hook up to. And they might give you more room for your pets to be more comfortable in. Were down to 5 furry kids and they have a Great time in our 8289WS. The opposed slides give them a lot of room to play in.
Just my .02.

Congrats on your new truck! You will love it! The only reason why we went with the MegaCab, is that it gives even more room for the furry kids. Now can you imagine the sales that Ram would have if they put the MegaCab with the long bed? All of the others would go out of business! (my opinion) This is the third Ram Truck we have had and no regrets.
