I just returned from the maiden voyage on the Pinnacle and the Chevy 3500. I am hoping that the fuel mpgs will improve as the truck engine breaks in.
The REQS is 40ft 10" and weighs 15000 lbs as rated by Jayco. Getting a 40 foot rv plus a long wheelbase crewcab dually requires planning ahead for a fuel stop that won't tear something off your trailer or truck. I stick to the same fuel plazas that the 18 wheelers use. There is usually plenty of room.
I weighed the truck and trailer on this trip for a 22,000 lb combined weight from CAT scale for $9. I suggest you do that before you decide on what tires to upgrade.
The Pinnacle has plenty of clearance.
