I realize this post is old but I have the same truck. How is your dodge handling this 5th wheel?

The t-bok is lighter then my sabre and my 6.0 Chevy 2500 hauled it fine just fuel mpg sucked.

We bought a 34 TBOK this year and we pull it with a 2002 Ford F250 CC short box diesel. We too are at the upper limits of the truck but it handles it fine. I don't take super long trips with it and I plan on upgrading to a one ton dually in the future but for now its fine. Just went up to Door County for Labor Day weekend which is two and a half hours away and we had no issues at all. Just still getting used to backing that big thing into campsites although my wife was very impressed with my quick placement and no swearing. Lol.

Bigger truck doesn't help that none. 8-11mpg towing for me depending on luck and how many times I prayed to FSM that day.

I pulled a sierra 35 say with the same truck with no problems. Did install rear axle air bags to raise the rear of the truck.

I would like to add that I have the 2014 36qbok and pulling it with a F250 with dpf delete. I have had my 5er a year in November. We have been to Galveston Tx, South Fork Co, Hot Springs Ar and Branson Mo. Getting 11 to 13 mpg. I take it to the ford dealership after every trip and it get a clean bill of health every time.

I would install Firestone airbags with the on board air control and then make sure you have gauges so you can watch the tranny and EGTs and then go camp! Edge makes great, easy plug in gauge pod.

We have the same unit and pull it with a 2012 Ram 3500 SRW. I'm guessing you are over weight on your truck as we are slightly with ours loaded up and a tank of fresh water on. Definitely go with some air bags. As you have found, it's quite maneuverable other than getting used to the back end swing.

I've thought about a dually too but can't bring myself to drive that wide truck the other 9 months of the year not pulling anything!
