Noticed that you are going to be pulling "your" 320rs with a 3/4 ton. Would you do me a favor and let me know how well that truck handles that trailer when it is full.
I put a lot of thought in going with the 320RS behind my 2500 RAM. I will keep it below the maximum weights as I know what I carry now.
I feel comfortable with towing the larger trailer because I know how my RAM handles my Sabre.
I'll report back after picking it up next weekend.
Right now, I've got a date in my recliner sitting out under my awning enjoying the beautiful weather and sites at Willow Tree RV resort.

Congrats!!! to both Amexpress and rjshiflet... Don't think we could stand to wait another week knowing it was at the dealer. I admire your patience. Same goes to Earthstation, I know you will be watching the weather when it gets closer to your delivery time. Sorry to hear about the hail damage to previous order, hope all goes well this time! We are waiting to get a build date from our dealer but are only at 5 weeks since ordering.
Spare bedroom is starting to fill up. Hee Hee!

I am retiring for good this year and have been looking at both a Big Country and Columbus including the new 365. For either of those I am going to have to go the dually route which I'm not real thrilled about. With the 320rs at gross weight its close to the limit on a 3/4t 4X4 which is what I perfer. Anyhow if you could let me know your observations I would greatly appreciate it. Live just up the road from you by FTW.
We've just pulled it home from the dealership (about 40 miles) and on the trip last weekend (about 70 miles each way) and it pulled like a dream. Our Ford F250 has the "tow-haul" setting that I'm sure all Fords do and it never strained in the least. The gross vehicle weight for the 320RS is just a hair over 14,000 and the F250 4x4 is rated to 15,300. However...I've had multiple Ford tech guys assure me that is a VERY CONSERVATIVE number. I wouldn't want to test that theory - but, we've pulled a Sandpiper 5th wheel for the past 6 years and the GVW on that was 14,200 and never a problem.
