Wow, that's a **** of a drive. It's a bit pricey but you should consider taking one of the two ferries from WI to MI on your way out.

Lake Express - Lake Michigan's high speed ferry

SS Badger, Lake Michigan Car Ferry | Manitowoc, WI - Ludington, MI

I know its a long drive but when you save over $5,000 compared to a camping world
dealer or any other dealer I will go for it. Its all interstate from Colorado and we plan
to tour the jayco plant in Indiana .

horse power, Double Cab. What do you think ?

A V6, and you're going to pull an X23B from Michigan to Colorado?? I don't know, I would have my reservations. I pull mine with a 5.7l Ram 4x4 and it does it fine but even with my truck the full-time tow rating is 5500lbs (that's including cargo and human weight) and my max tow rating is 10500 pounds but that rating isn't for full-time towing. I'd look up your towing specs for your truck. I personally wouldn't want to tow it with a v6. But you know how opinions go.

I looked it up, your MAX towing is 6500 pounds if you have the TRD model, 3500 pounds for the 4.0l liter stock package. Those numbers aren't for full time towing across states, so, you're gonna put some wear and tear on your truck probably and it is more than likely going to be a rough ride, because your full time towing is probably half that. Hopefully you have transmission/oil coolers and a tow package.

Interesting phrase, I'm on two weeks vacation and I want to go visit my dad in WA. about 1800 miles, three days give or take. Am I full time towing?

Yes, that would be considered a full-time tow, most trucks have a max tow rating and a continous tow rating. The max towing would be for say, you're getting a load of decking from a lumber store and you're taking it across town and you don't do it everyday. A continuous tow rating is for something you do everyday or for long distances/multiple days. Like tow a trailer across country or tow a skidsteer every day for your job.

For example: That's the main difference between owning a Dodge Ram 2500 and a Dodge Ram 2500 Heavy Duty, the Heavy Duty (in the case of Ram) means you can continually tow the max rating. A non heavy duty rating has a different rating between max and continuous. Both the Heavy Duty and the regular 2500 have the same max tow rating, but the Heavy Duty can tow the max ALL the time whereas it wouldn't be recommended in the non heavy duty.

Hopefully that's crystal now to everyone.

In your case Ed, you have a super duty truck which makes no distinction between a max or continuous rating. You can pull the max 24/7 without any issues.

I don't know. My 2011 Dodge Ram towing rating had two ratings on their website when I bought it in 2011. A max towing and a standard towing. The heavy duties just had a max towing. That's when I figured all this out. Now none of that is there.
