Hello, everyone. We just joined the forum, and wanted to say hi to everyone. We are in the process of trading our 2011 denali tt in on either aRockwood Ultralight Model 8288ws 5er, or a 2011 Wildcat 34flr. The Rockwood ismy first choice, because the Wildcatwould bepushing my weight limits. Our tv is a 2009 f-250 crew cab 4wd 5.4 with 3.73 gears. Any opinions would be welcome. thanks CAMP ON

Welcome. I love my Wildcat. Even with the Rockwood, while not pushing the rated limits it with that 5.4L, if you do any mountain or hilly camping, you may find the truck struggling a bit. On flat land you should be fine. But you may find yourself looking to upgrade the truck at some point as well. I know I did (granted mine was the older 2V 5.4L, but still).

Anyway, enjoy it, and keep us posted.
