Canada offers free CUMMINS at least, twice a year.

Various other discounts that the 1500 doesn't have.

Don't believe me?

I don't believe you know how to negotiate.

Negotiated 19k trade for an 08 f350 v10, that I paid 12k for, 6 months prior.

Anyways... I know what I paid.
Don't need to prove it to anyone.

I thought you didn't care . . .

And yes, negotiation is possible with 1/2 ton trucks also. All truck stickers are highly inflated.

Our old truck had a tow capacity of 7k. It was okay towing but when we took it down to Disney and had to go on the hills there and in Tallahassee (where we're from), you could really feel the limitation of power. We didn't have any problems at all stopping but again these were hills and not mountains! The trip to Disney convinced us that we should get a new truck...we were previously going back and forth about it because our old truck still runs good and has ac (required in FL ).
I didn't know Florida had "hills", I guess if you were feeling the limitation on those "hills" you most likely do need a new TV!

We have been pulling a Rockwood 8329ss for 2 years with a 1/2 ton Tundra and have no problems. I believe the weights are very close to what you noted in your first blog.
We cruise at 60 & have no breaking problems.
If u want to downgrade the Tundra is a great truck.

I have to admit I found this hard to believe, but with the help of Professor Google, I found the offer from RAM Canada:
https://www.ramtruckoffers.ca/en/offers/ontario/3500

It's absolutely true!! ... or at least it was ... I tried pricing a 3500 on their website and it doesn't show that offer so I assume it's no longer available. Also, it seems to only be available on the 3500, not the 2500.
