Anyone pulling a Surveyor 5th wheel?

If you've got one, let me know what your experience is; quality, towing, etc.

Wife and I have a 293 RLTS 5th wheel. After having 3 TT I'll not go back. Pull it with a 2500 HD and it quick and easy to hook up and disconnect. Pulls like a dream, no complcints.

Have pulled to Disney twice (800 miles one way), ready to go again in two weeks. Have pulled to Charleston, SC as well. Pulls like a dream with a GMC Sierra Duramax. Love the camper.

I have a 2015 274BHS pulling it with a Ram 2500 HO diesel. I only use tow mod when driving down step hills. The trailer is really no work for the truck, and even on 10 mph switch backs I am able to keep all the wheels on the inside of the lines.
It tracks behind like a 16 foot utility I use for the sleds and snow-bikes.
I did feel a little sway when we hit some cross winds but not enough worry about.
It is an easy trailer to pull.

We have have 2013 293 RLTS 5th wheel. We took on a 4,000 mile trip a couple of years ago with no issues towing. Tows great, easy hook up.

We just got a 2015 292RETS and we love it. We are pulling it with a Ford F150 with the 3.5 Ecoboost. It pulls very easy. We brought the trailer home in a 40 MPH head wind and I was able to scoot right along at 65 without even working the engine.

Do you have the HD payload package?
