Hello from a cornfield..

in Nebraska!
If the bank can speed things up a bit I will be driving 7 hours friday to trade our truck camper in on a new Sabre 32BHOK. I have owned a class B, an old TT, and our current TC but never a 5er. I'm sure we're going to love it-we love all camping! but I have to admit that I'm a bit intimidated by the sheer size and weight of this new camper! My Tow vehicle is a SRW DMax/Allison LB, and it looks like I'll be well under the weight restrictions but I'm sure it's going to take a few miles of hwy to get used to the 10,000#, 34' trailer.

Someone care to ease my mind?

Thanks!

J

Once you pull a 5er, you will wonder why you ever pulled anything else! Does that help? LOL

I agree,once you pull it you'll love it.I pull a sierra 345 and just got back from Ozarks in Missouri no problems.
Happy Camping.

X2!

If you have driven a pickup with a slide in camper and towed a travel trailer, then a fifth wheel will be a piece of cake.

to the forum and congratulations!
