first thanks to all that have responded to my other post..All opinions really helped.
Very happy to report that we have selected and have our Next Jayco Camper on hold. Jayco Eagle 2008 355FBHS 5vr. approx 11.2K dry. Do not intend to pull with Tanks full...
Would you be willing to share your Ride and what you are pulling..Would you do over?
Still young so not a full timer yet, maybe one day but in the mean time Probably be camping 4 times a year I hope....Probably 200-400 mile trips one way, mostly flat, maybe a few Hilly trips. In the south so mostly Flat Beach trips except heading towards NC/TN Mountains some times.
Just for perspective I am a Chevy Kinda Guy (no offense intended to Ford or Dodge or Toyota, don't want a war of the Brands)..I am looking at the 07-09 year 2500HD and 3500HD. Duramax/Allison combo. Will be pulling a 355FBHS Eagle, Wife and Two boys. about 11.5K just to keep numbers rounded. Do you pull with a 2500 or 250 single rear. I am going the 4x4 rout after reaching a decision from the findings of my other post.
The SRW will be more practical use for me but want to know your opinion but more important your Real world experience on 2500 Truck pulling 5vr, 11.5k and any stablility issues or anything else that will help me.
REALLY interested in the Short Box and how your 5vr pulls. Hard to find Long Bed 2500 that is not worn out or a plain work Truck.
according to what i find online the 2500HD Duramax can handle about 13K 5vr weight...
Thank you all!
