I had to chuckle when I read this. Thanks for the post. It's so tough to be considering selling our truck. Dang thing is 6 years old and only has 38,000 miles on it...

And guess what...when all is said and done, close enough is close enough for us weekend warrior campers. No, you won't be passing any vehicles going uphill with your combo and you won't be passing a lot of gas stations either. The revs are gonna run right up there too and she's gonna be thirsty. What are our other options?...3/4 ton, diesel? C'mon now...does anyone really believe you need more than a reasonably equipped 1/2 ton PU to pull a WH 27DSRL? Ignore the weight police and listen to actual owners of this same combo...there are several of us on here and we're all gonna tell you the same thing and that is "You'll be just fine". Just by asking the question, you've shown that you are aware enough to be prudent of your weights in general. The fact that you won't pull with full water helps you even more. Go. Hook on. Get out there. Have fun. And if you happen to come across a guy from Upstate NY in a blue 2010 1500 Sierra towing a WH 27DSRL in your travels, mosey on over and say hello.
