We just bought a 2011 Seville 34SB. The sales rep said we would be able to pull it with a 1995 Ford 350 Dually, no problem. We were wondering what the more experienced drivers thought. We are new to this. The dry weight of the camper is 11,352. DW is worried about the weight.

If you got the diesel It can pull it. Pulled heavier stock trailers for years with that truck. Your not going to be able to keep up with today's modern trucks though

Welcome to the forum. It won't be long before someone chimes in with all the weight police calculations and informs you how many civil and criminal charges you will be facing for using that truck to pull that trailer, stand by. Good luck.

Yes it is a diesel. Have had it for years and still runs like a champ, just hate to get rid of it. We actually don't have very many miles on the truck.

Nice 5er.

Yes, you've got the right truck for it.

Of course, if your wife is worried, and if you want a fancier truck... NO! YOU NEED A NEW TRUCK!

You are right about what the wife wants. I sold our 36' in October to downsize and get something aroung 32'. I thought that would make things a little easier like towing, fuel mileage, getting into state parks and all. Once I got the DW involved in the shopping we ended up with a 38'8".

You should handle that just fine.

No use worrying about keeping up with the newer dogs on the road. Half the fun of any outing is getting there and enjoying the trip.
