Front leveling jacks. Are they made too cheap to handle the weight of the newer 5er's

So bad. I can't believe they did not call you. Makes you wonder how people run their business. I am a bit nervous actually because I can see me doing that as I have never owned a 5th wheel. I have only owned TT's. I will have to pay close attention to hitching and un-hitching and try to figure it out.

If I was going the Ford Dually route ( but I'm not!)...F450 would be at top of the list

My friend owns a ford dealership and gives me dealer cost on vehicles. The difference between the 2013 F350 Lariat DRW and the 2013 F450 Lariat was $2000. Since i thought i needed the stability i chose the dually. Since I don't see too many F450's on the road and not much difference in price I ordered it. 8 weeks before it comes in.
Congrats...great tow vehicle...enjoy!

I am a ford guy but to be honest I like the look of the chev better. Looks taller than the ford, not sure if it is to tall for a 5th wheel.
