Re: Fifth wheel questions
Yeah I never really planned on towing a 5th wheel with my current vehicle. If we get a 5th, it will be a smaller one, and we could maybe use it locally (within state) to tow. A new camper and new truck is not in the current budget, though I would like a new 3/4 ton. Maybe in a few years.
I do have the 5.3, with tow package and brake controller, middle of road gearing (forget ratio). I have mainly towed the popup camper, which it hardly even feels. I have towed a bobcat on one of those heavy construction trailers (like for a backhoe), I could feel that beast back there for sure.
Since her brother volunteered to use his truck (Ford F250)my wife thinks we can take him up on his offer, myself I like using my own toys, if I break it I don't have to pay $$ to fix someone elses stuff.
Thanks for the input.
