Dodge has the power BUT the single axel is so light in the rear with no load it's dangerous ( I know I wreaked my brand new one due to a fishtail). I know the dully is much better in the handling department, not sure about the ride.
The Fords are generally nice over all and ride better. I'm not sure about the newer engine models but I know a couple years ago guys talked about the engine topping off in power while driving through mountains.
BTW....Loved my Dodge but after the way the rear end just went out from under my the wife just did not feel comfortable driving it, so we made the change.
Going through this myself.
I LOVE my 5th wheel but the wife hates to drive my truck, with or without the rig.
The youngest is going off to college and empty nest is already getting to my wife. She wants to be able to take off on her own if I'm at work and go spend the weekend with the daughter.
So we have been looking around at different layouts and classes.
It will be a bit before we change but it will happen so I am reading every comment with interest.
