We had a DRW 2004 F350 with a GVWR of 12,500. The 2007 Cameo was just above that weight so we ordered a DRW 2008 F450 Crew Cab with 4:30 rear end. Wife would drive to work as the truck would not fit in the parking garage when I worked. Would not be without a DRW - had a tire go flat on the passenger side and didn't even know it.

Do I have more truck than needed? Sure do and as someone pointed out, there is always the upgrade to a larger trailer. The only issue with the F450 - vehicle insurance. Oh well.

I towed our 27' 5th wheel with 2004 2500 SRW chevy duramax for 12 years. It did fine. Upgraded to 40' Jayco North Point 5th wheel as we plan to travel more and farther away from home. No way I would feel comfortable with my existing SRW. I also purchased a new 3500 DRW silverado with duramax. I just absoutely love it as does the wife. I feel very comfortable and we both have no issues with expanding our travels with this outfit. Already use to the dually. My vote is go DRW, DRW, DRW. You will be happy,

If you ever pull a trailer with a dually, you'll never want to pull with anything else.

Our 5er is 39', weighs 12700# with 3000# on the pin. The TV is SRW F350 SB. I find the match to be very good but if I were to upgrade to a much heavier 5th I'd be shopping for a DRW TV.
