I pull ours with my 2015 ram 2500. I know a lot of people don't agree with it. I've done suspension mods and she pulls it like a champ with no issues. Even through a winter storm in 4 wheel drive doing 20 mph on the interstate. Happened on the way back from Utah. The spare tire was because I ran over a screw at the RV resort we stayed the night. I tell ya, the icy roads, winter storm conditions and the flat tire sure tested me haha! Loved every minute though!

I really like the side patio options and the 40D12 has the nicest one. Plus, everything appears great and all these positive Vengeance comments helps a lot.

As has been mentioned in other posts, Brad, the Vengeance rep is a great guy. The dealer we are talking with had Brad call me. He was great to talk with and last Friday, I left him a voicemail about the wheels of the Vengeance haulers being able to handle 110 psi G rated tires. He called me back today to tell me not only do they handle them, I can have them upgraded from the factory as an option.

If I do get a 40D12, a big reason will be for the service I'm getting "before" the sale.
40d12 was our choice because of the side patio but didn't sit well with my pocket book, I found the Road warrior 427 for a few thousand less that I ended up liking better than 40d12 after sitting several hours in each trailer at the dealership.

Ultimately the deciding factor was that I needed 14' hauling space and ended up with Vengeance 398v which was closer to my price range anyway and we absolutely love it with a few fixes to be completed this week.

Awesome. Sounds like a good choice for you. I don't need the 14' garage space. Almost always just a golf cart for us.

As for the Road Warrior. They look nice in the pictures. But after my nightmare Cyclone and dealing Heartland a couple years ago, I wouldn't have another Heartland product if it meant I had to sleep on the ground in a tent.

Junior25k,
That looks exactly like my 2015 Ram 2500hd.

You are right I don't know how a vehicle with a axle rating of 12.5k and a tire rating of 3740 lbs each can only have a 10k max weight.
In the future I plan on adding air bags to the rear and upgrading my th to a large 5th wheel.

Let the weight police holler! I truly believe the capacity of this vehicle is greatly under estimated.

Yes the air bags are awesome with the wireless control. I know they say air bags don't raise your truck's payload. I just think of it like 3500 dually leveling out it's load with air bags right lol! Same thing in my book.

I am taking mine to the dealer on the 18th for the safety recall and a the living room slide floor. A few other minor issues that I figure they should look at while it's there for the safety recall.
I also bought the Andersen Ultimate aluminum fifth wheel hitch so I will get to test that out since it's a three hour drive one way to the dealer.
I am ready to camp. Sick of winter and everything that goes with it up here in Iowa.

I had my airbags installed before I ever hooked up the TT so I have no idea of the difference they may make. However, I noticed a remarkable increase in stability with the unloaded truck after I put the bags on. There doesn't seem to be much difference in ride quality, but the bags also stopped the "wheel hopping" problem that happens if the rear end breaks traction on wet roads.

Let the air out and go for a tow. Then you'll know the difference if you're curious.
