34WRS How Does It pull?

Does anyone have or know someone that has a 34WRS? We just sold our 20ft WPT and really like the 34WRS but I'm worried about how it pulls being that big? I will have to upgrade my hitch on my truck to a class 5 right out of the gate and get a weight distribution hitch that can handle it. I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 with the 6.7 Cummins in it. By all the numbers it's good to pull it and I already have air bags so I have that in my favor. Looking for real world experience now.

Its such a rare model, its going to be hard to find someone here who has experience. But hopefully, someone will chime in.

I had a 30WRS for a year and a half and put over 8000 miles on it for around 20 race weekends. I had an Equalizer 4 Point hitch and once I set it up properly, it handled extremely well. As good as any fifth wheel I've owned.

I think the key is your hitch. Get a quality hitch and make sure its set-up properly. The tongues on these things are very heavy. Mine was 1500 lbs. unloaded. But once I had the Equalizer set correctly with some real tension on the bars, the sway control was fantastic.

What hitch setup did you use? Dealing with an 1800lb TW has been a challenge to find a hitch to handle it!

One more thing. I like the fact you're getting a real class V hitch. I had the Curt from etrailer rated at 20,000 lbs. Great hitch.

When you get the WD hitch, make sure the shank is also a 2.5" shank. Using a reducer on a 2" shank just makes slop and is sometimes not recommended.

That Curt I mentioned has a tongue weight rating from 2700 lbs. I believe.

Good to know! I was looking at the Curt setups to. Had it on my 20ft WPT and you didn't even realize the thing was back there.
