"Rough Roads" in Louisiana is an understatement!!!

Glad to know that I ordered my Premier 365BHS before they discontinued it. Thanks everyone for sharing.

Is anyone pulling a pinnacle with a 3/4 ton? I see a lot of premiers being pulled by 3/4 tons but they are a few hundred pounds lighter on the hitch.

We pulled our Pinnacle with a Chevy 2500HD Duramax in the beginning, pulled it ok, Air Bagged it to help with the Pin Weight (3400 Lbs.) and it stopped ok.

When we were out in Western Louisiana and Texas we got pushed around quite a bit with the wind and we knew we were at the limits of the 2500HD so we stepped up to a GMC 3500HD DRW.

It was the right decision for us since we Fulltime and move every two weeks or so, the difference is like night and day.

We are sure glad we made the change.

I do see others pulling Pinnacle's and even larger Triple Axle Toy Haulers with a 3/4 Ton and we pulled our Pinnacle for few thousand miles with a 3/4 Ton so it is doable.
