What are you pulling your 32 BHDS with?

Hi all. I'm looking for a good tow vehicle. If you have a 32 BHDS, what do you pull it with? Thanks for your input.

I have the 324BHDS which the gross weight is 10,250 lbs. The weights are very close to the 32BHDS. I use a 2006 Dodge 2500 MegaCab with the ***mins 5.9 Engine. It is a very nice combo
Not sure I would want to pull it with anything less, esp. if you go through any mountain areas.

I was pondering a 2010 Ram 2500 Crew Cab. I suspect this would be sufficient. Thoughts?

I see the censor blanked out my engine name. It is the diesel engine uses, CTD is the acronym. Were you thinking of the diesel or the Hemi?

I know if we were to go larger than the tt we have, we would definitely buy a 3/4 ton. We had a diesel 3/4 ton towing the Aljo 5th wheel we owned back in the 90's. It took hills well where the 1/2 ton with the 7500lb tt we have now will go much slower on grades.

I'm towing with a GMC Sierra 2500HD 6.0 (gas)Crew Cab. It came with the heavy tow package. Having that was nice because I didn't need to add anything. It already has a Transmisson Oil Cooler and an Integrated Brake Controller. Tows nice.

That TT needs a 3/4 ton truck to tow it, very nice floorplan.

I tow mine with my 2004 V-10 Ford Excursion. So far so good.

I towed the lighter 31 BHDS G2 which was scaled at 9K loaded up with a 00 Excursion V-10 (4.30 gears), a 99 Suburban 2500 7.4L and currently a 98 Ford E350 V-10 (3.73 gears). The first two were 4wd which really helps in the snow and when the trailer tires sink into the dirt after having been parked for awhile.
