As far as we're concerned, you couldn't make a better choice, as you can see by our signature. I know they claim the 8289WS is half-ton towable, but I wouldn't reccomend it. And we preferred the long bed as opposed to the short bed, but that's a personal choice. Just don't go with a half-ton truck, you'll regret it and then have to get a new truck. But one thing you have to remember...

Hello from Wilshire England

Welcome! We have the 8289ws and our tow vehicle is a Dodge 2500 6.4 hemi with the tow package. I wouldn't want to pull this camper with a half ton. By the way we are trading our camper for the 8299bs. We love the 8289ws but the new one addressed the "I wish it had this" issues.
