Waaay too much $$$ to settle for something that's close to what you want. IMHO

……….Will be ordering a truck so I get exactly what I want.
========
We did the same thing. First vehicle we ever sat down with the dealer and ordered the way we wanted it. Took delivery on it last November. So far, I have yet to get into the truck and say, "Darn, I wish I had gotten the __________(fill in the blank) Option." A lot of money, but kind of nice to have exactly what you want.

So what Tow Vehicle did you pick? Hopefully diesel, worth every penny... Did u go with a dually? My wife is wanting to upgrade to a fifth wheel toy hauler some kind of bad. Probably next summer as we just bought our bumper pull less than 18 moths ago....

We are looking at purchasing the 2016-293RKDS after 5 miserable years with a Cross Road unit. Any feedback from owners of this unit would be much appreciated. This will be our 4th fifth wheel and believe this is the best way to travel!

Thank you,

The 293rkds is 2,000 pounds lighter than our current unit. It is also 600 pounds lighter on the pin. That is going to give a break to our 2009 duramax.

Are you getting a long bed or short bed. That will make a difference on the hitch type. We have a short bed, standard hitch and Reese Sidewinder. Found out that the Reese Revolution and Sidewinder are the same. It's called the Revolution on the OEM, and Sidewinder for aftermarket installation. My combination is a lot lighter than a auto-slide hitch so I have no trouble (so far) getting it on and off the truck.
