I've been towing my 365 SAQ with a 2008 F250 6.4L Diesel SRW for going on 3 years now. I did add airbags, and it is deleted and tuned. Plenty of power, and no issues to date (knock on wood).

The 6.4L is a strong engine that has gotten sort of a bad rap by some. Look around any of the high horsepower sled pullers, they love the 6.4 as it makes CRAZY power. I want my DPF to fall off too....

Like mortal798, I have been towing my 365SAQ with a 3/4 ton for two years now. I did add a good set of air springs that I load between 50 to 70psi to my '10 GMC 2500 with the 6.6L diesel and Allison tranny. In that two years, my family has traveled roughly 8000 miles through 18 states with our 365SAQ in tow. When I first purchased this camper, I kicked around the idea of upgrading to a 3500 or even a 4500 for stability purposes. After a trip from our home state of Illinois to Yellowstone and the Tetons and back that included towing our camper across Highway 14 through the Bighorn National Forest last summer, I no longer felt a need to upgrade tow vehicles.

Golfmedik, the best thing you can do is get the DPF junk off of it. I did my 450 over 4 years ago, picked up 4-5 mpg pulling, depending on my speed. Truck has been to shop for nothing since I put DPF in my shed!!! Good luck!!!

Refer to Braun62 and "the list keeps growing" to see what I think about the Sandpiper.

One of these days I'm afraid I am going to hit a bump too hard and it will fall off!
