Todays HD SRW and DRW trucks have really improved towing and ride.
We went from a 2500HD SRW Chevy to a 3500HD DRW GMC a few years ago when we still had our Pinnacle.
Our Pinnacle weighed in at 15,700 lbs. with a pin weight of 3,700 lbs.
The 2500HD pulled it fine but in heavy cross winds in Texas, it was getting pushed around quite a bit.
Since we fulltime and move every few weeks, we moved to our current DRW before going Coast to Coast last year, sure glad we did, much more stable in those heavy cross winds out west.
Now that we have a SOB 5er that is larger, longer and heaver than our Pinnacle, sure glad to have the extra capacity and the stability of our DRW.

It is difficult finding the perfect match for towing a rig and allowing for the next rig while thinking about navigating the Walmart parking lot and the fast food line.

It is a great feeling when you figure it out.

My truck is a 3500 SRW with 3:73 gears and I have no regrets.
