27RLWS

We are looking to buy a Flagstaff 27RWLS which is 31'11" long and 6338 dry weight. I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 thy can pull 8600 lbs. does anyone know if this TV will tow this TT without any issues?

I just got one and only towed it once 175 miles from the dealer with no problem. I have a 2010 Ford f150 crew cab. I did upgrade to the Equalizer 4 point sway control because of the length.

It's doable, I towed mine with a 1500 Sliverado xcab a few times before I ran across a Silverado 1500HD (same as plain 2500) world of difference, instead of 'white knuckles' I now can tow with 1 finger and don't worry about getting passed by 18 wheelers.

I could tell when the 18 wheelers went by and was a little nerves but it was the first time I towed one that long.

Thanks folks. Basic dry weight isn't all that bad nor the length. The Dodge Ram is a healthy truck but did to want to push the limits.

I bought mine in Atlanta some 800 miles away last August and towed just fine with the truck in my sig., which is the only truck I have. I have since gone out with it 3 more times, typically 3+ hours away on Interstates, etc. As weighed by trailer is 7000#.

You need to watch your tongue weight and use a good WDH. Make sure that your truck's tires are up to the job in terms of load capacity and air pressure. Big 18 wheelers are not a problem. Also drove through driving rain just before Thanksgiving and it towed beautifully.

The dealer is giving us the tow package, hitch and tow bars, but I want to make sure they are the best for what we are towing. Any ideas as to what the best would be?

Thanks. Etrailer.com is the best is service and parts. Prices may vary but I would rather buy from Etrailer and spend a little extra for the service.

Our weekend will be in the front yard. Too darn cold to go anywhere and the news is talking more snow. So...drag it home, plug it in and we get out of the house for the weekend. Should we have forgotten something to add in the RV, just open the garage and get it. Poof.

Front yard/driveway is a good place to get aquainted with your new camper, way better than going somewhere to find a problem.
