Jagiven, what size engine is in your Dakota? Does it do a good job pulling? Where is the gas mileage when towing? Are you using WD hitch? I have an 08 Dakota with 3.7L engine. Just bought it to pull the 18SRB, wondering what it is going to be. Big change for us, we pulled a New 1999 Jayco Designer XL with a new 1999 Dodge Cummins for 9 years. Decided we were leaving the traveling scene. Oh well, the old man couldn't handle not having somewhere to go or something to keep him busy. Even at 80 years old, need something to do to keep us young. Might add, we are a lot slower now than we were in the early 2000's. Hope to hear your comments, don't spare them, I love discussions.
