Smile Silverback 2013 29RE-

Just purchase a 2013 Sliverback 29RE-waiting delivery, one more week to go!
We have a 2010 RAM 2500 HD Diesel Laramie, crew cab- We have been told we are fine with the weight...looking for feedback. This is our first Fifth Wheel, moving up from a TT. Words of wisdom?? Thanks!

We also have the 2013 Silverback 29 RE, just brought it home last October so we haven't really used it! We tow with a 08 Ram Laramie Mega CTD 2500. Bringing it home from Ohio it seemed to handle well even in some pretty strong x-winds, however I have to remember it was empty. Come spring I plan on loading it up for camping and then taking it over to weigh scales and then I'll know for sure if the weights are inside the envelope? Probably the best thing anyone can do to be absolutely sure! Enjoy and have fun

We also have a silverback 29re. Have had it on several 4 hour trips. It pulls great. We are pulling it with a 2012 GMC sierra 2500 hd, 6 liter gas. I do not believe you will have any problems. Enjoy your new rig. You will love it.

You should be fine with that combo. We have a SB 29rk that I pull with a 2012 Ram Laramie 3/4 ton with the Cummins 6.7L diesel with no issues.
