Insight on 2014 FOREST RIVER WILDCAT 337FB

I'm new to this posting thing so bear with me.... I am very interested in upgrading my '06 Dutchmen 3006 to a '14 Wildcat 337FB. But I'm concerned my '15 Chevy 2500HD w/ 6.0 isn't enough for the camper. I've been running 6.0 L's since 1999, it's a hardy engine and strong transmission and I know it won't do 75 mph up hills but I don't want to overdo it either. Anyone have any thoughts on this??? Thanks

I have same setup 2015 2500HD 6.0l towing a 38ft 2015 344qb and it seems to work just fine.

Thanks for the reply. I've pulled the camper now a few times on a 3-4 hr trip and am very pleased with how the truck handled it. If fact, even though my new camper is 1400 lbs heavier my fuel economy had improved. Between the better weight distribution and the better streamlined design it's a little more than 1.5 mpg better! I just installed air suspension onto the truck to improve the ride and help level the truck out so we'll see how that does this weekend! Thanks again!
