Ram 3500 Dually. Pulls great and so does the trailer. By the way, my 356qbq and truck are both for sale.

Chewie thanks for the reply and the offer. Can I ask why selling your rig?

We are buying a motorhome. As for towing, the ram Dually handled the trailer very well. No sway and tracked very well also. Good matched combo. Others do it in less of a truck, but me personally like how the Dually handles and rides with such a big trailer.

I would like to hear others experience with towing this camper, Salem Hemisphere 356QBQ, with a non dually. I have a chance to get this camper at a great deal. I have a 2011 Dodge Ram Crew Cab, 2500, 6.7L. Anyone else tow with similar? Thoughts or comments?

My thoughts are my own.
You will be over your trucks gross ( if you care)

I would look a bit smaller. But, it's up to you!

I tow mine with a 2000 F250 7.3L. Pulls it beautifully. I am not sure how you would be over your gross. I am not and my understanding is the newer rucks are rated a little higher.

I will be close to my max GVWR in the trailer is fully loaded which we do not travel loaded to the max water tanks are empty so I don't think I will have a problem.
Looking to upgrade my tires and add airbags to help with the ride.

I pull mine with a 2009 Chevrolet 2500 HD crew cab Duramax. Pulls it nicely with zero issues.

I've used a 1500 silverado short box but the 5.3L works pretty hard on the hills. I've also used an f350 dually with a 7.3 which is obviously better, but both work to get it around.
