Congratulations on the new truck!
I pull a similar sabre to your qsik with a 2500 duramax so you'll have no issues.
My sabre is actually heavier then yours when full.

Happy camping!

Thanks! We are already at 90 nights this year and still have a few weekend to go!

I strongly believe we will enjoy the "Hybrid Camper Lifestyle" of being both seasonal and also travelling a little! After 4 straight years of travelling and a young baby, I needed a break from the Pack / Unpack routine but now I am ready for a few outings!

Awesome! I wanted a 2500, but the Ram payload on 2500's was too low and I am a Ram guy, so I had to go 3500!

What's remarkable- my 2012 DRW Ram 3500 is "only" 4,297 lbs. The 3,950 that you quote- is that for your actual truck? or is it what's on their web site?

3950 was the quoted payload online, just check my sticker and I have 3880lbs. Happy with that for a single rear wheel!

Those SRW numbers are incredible. I'm really jealous.

My 2014 MC SB Dually is 5900 and change for payload. I'll never be over and the mileage is as good/better than my '12 2500. 9500 mi this summer towing and avg was 11.8 mpg - FL to WA and back. Stability in winds and twisty roads is unbelievable plus the extra cab room is great.
By the way - how does one "practice" surgery??
