UPCamper said something in a previous thread way back when that always had me thinking, even though I disagreed with it adamantly. Nicely of course..
At the time it didn't seem worth getting in to a debate over, mainly, as I'm pretty sure there would never be a way to prove or disprove it.
But apparently it's never left me
I have thought of myself as neurotic at times, this could verify my thought process!!!
PS: If anybody even remembers the thread, I put brand-new tires on it, D load LT tires, highest load I could for that size (wanted E) and all the problems were immediately cured! Pulled like a daisy at 75. But kept it to 60 just cause it felt "safer" to do anyway.
He said "You realize you aren't the only one with a 1 ton or larger truck on here correct? I own one as do the the majority of the users on this forum"
I don't know why I found that so incorrect, but intuitively it just didnt seem right.
My guess is that the vast majority of people on this forum, as well as the vast majority of people who RV with a tow vehicle, Drive 2500s. Next 3500s, than 1500s. That, of course is a wild guess. It could be 1500 comes and 3500s last.
Interestingly enough, I did a little bit of research, and I was quite shocked and surprised at the number of sales of 2500s compared to 3500s. I was way off I will admit.
I personally had guessed about 4 to 1. In reality it's more like 2 to 1. To say 2500s are sold twice as often. So what I did already learn, is that many more 3500s are sold than I believed. But considering the amount of work truck purchases, no telling what they are being bought for.
But back to my point, this opinion of mine is based soley on observation. I have absolutely no way to prove this and it's not very scientific. Just I see tons of 2500 trucks on the road pulling RVs and at dealerships, everywhere I look in fact.
Just curious to others opinions
