Hello I have purchased a 2019 Columbus 1492 366RL 5th wheel. I am pulling it with a 2016 Ford F350 srw, that has really low miles on it. First time for me pulling a 5th wheel, surprised how much better it pulled versus a towable. I am sure I will have questions. So all help will be appreciated.

Welcome neighbor.

Utilize the Ohio parks. They are very nice. A number of them just added wifi. Good WiFi!

Cheap as well with the Golden Buckeye card.

Welcome to the forum. Lots of knowledgeable folks here to help with your questions. Post them to the sub forum Fifth wheel/Travel trailers. Your Columbus is listed there. Enjoy and Later RJD

Welcome from Chardon, Ohio. Yes pulling a 5th wheel is so much nicer than a tag IMHO as I have had both.

Actually there is no Columbus sub-forum. Since Columbus 5th wheels are a Palomino product, the appropriate sub-forum for Columbus owners, is the TT/5th Wheel section's Palomino sub-forum.

Our set up is roughly the same size. CC 34 RE 37í. Short bed Ram.

Be very careful getting fuel!

The majority of stations you will not fit well in. Note the yellow poles with the scratches on them. For the moment plan well to fill up disconnected. You are also over 13í tall!

Your spotter has to work hard. And look up.

A few of the truck stops have added a gas pump lane for rvís. But, not many.
