Dually? Gas? Diesel? That's good info and great to hear. One of our bigger trips will be to Myrtle Beach this summer through the Tennessee and Carolina mountains.

We have a 2012 365SAQ and we're towing it with a 2011 Chevy 2500 with the Duramax. Had I known I was going to buy this trailer, I may have looked at a 3500 DRW, but the truck pulls it fine. I don't struggle with the weight, and even with the 6.5 bed, have no loss of confidence in handling of the truck and trailer. We went to Estes Park Colorado last fall and had no issues going up the canyon, truck only squats about 1.5 inches, so I did not install bags. The truck sits virtually level with the camper hitched. The camper is long, so no matter what your tow vehicle, if you're not a long box dually, it probably looks weird, but tows beautifully. I sacrifice mileage for time. I generally go the speed limit which in Nebraska, Colorado is generally 70-75. I'm getting 9-10 towing.

Hey cmptrkd and any other 3/4 ton pullers of this rig, anyone have a pic of your setup? Post them if you do I'd really like to see. Thanks in advance.

I have a 2011 f 250 6.7 and the 365 saq. It will tow it good stock. You will get a good bit of sag though. I had firestone 5k bags installed and its a different truck. It tows like a beast, much stiffer ride with the bags and you dont bottom out on the bumpstops when you hit a bump. 40 to 50 psi loaded is a great range for me.

I have that exact setup. 2011 F-250 and 2012 365SAQ. We have owned it now for 3 months and have put about 3000 miles on it so far. It tows great. I was worried after reading about needing a dually, but it is not needed. I usually run about 70 with the cruise set and get 10 mpg. I have added F-350 SRW springs to my truck instead of the airbags, but that is completely up to you.

chiro - post a pic.... I'd really like to see your setup. Are you shortbed? CC? Extended? This is awesome to hear. How do you like towing in all conditions, wind, hills etc. MORE INFO please!!!!! Love it! I never thought or doubted for a minute that the truck can but how do you feel when towing.
