Does anyone have any comments or suggestions? I have a Columbus 5th. wheel. It is 42 feet and weighs about 13,000 empty.
If it's an HO, it comes with the Aisin.
You didn't say 'why' you want to replace what you've got? Because of the best reason in the world, "Because I want to" or -- What.
SRW or DRW, it'll do the job. No doubt about it. Those things pull like a freight train.
DRW gives you more stability and more carrying power, but is a liability on the road when unhooked. I hate 'em. Not really. 'Hate' is too strong a word. They're really fun but after a while, they can get on your nerves. And unless your wife is a born and raised Farm Girl, forget sending her to the store with it. It's a lot of truck.
Whatever you decide, good luck. That Cummins is hard to beat. They sell more street diesels than anybody else in the world for a reason.
