RE: Help Ram 2500 6.4 gas vs diesel

Have had both a 2500 and now a 3500 Ram Cummins. Get the 3500 for payload and if you are planning to tow over 10,000 pounds get the diesel. If payload is a huge consideration then get the 3500 Cummins dually. When it comes to towing you almost cannot have too much truck. Lots of good advice here about figuring out what you plan to tow before you decide on another truck or keeping what you have.

RE: Carson City, NV

The Gold Dust West RV park is very close to the airport, has a restaurant and casino on the premises. For what you want it probably is the closest to the airport.

RE: When is weight distribution needed?

So my thoughts are to drop it on the ball and try it... Am I nuts? What weight are you trying to distribute? You have over 12,000 pounds capacity with the rear tires, more than 9000 pounds rear axle capacity, and why would you want to redistribute weight to the front of an already heavy front end truck and some (25%) back to the trailer tires? If the receiver hitch can handle the tongue weight why mess with weight distribution. Sway is another issue but your question is about weight distribution. And, yea, I also have a 3500 dually and a 31 foot travel trailer and on the ball works just fine as long as the receiver is up to the weight capacity. Toyhaulers empty are typically nose heavy to compensate for the weight of the toys that are carried in the rear. Don't load you bike to far forward as that will only add more weight on the tongue that you probably don't need. If you have 10 percent or more of the total weight on the tongue you should not have a sway issue. 13 percent is about ideal.

RE: Looking for a quality Toy hauler but discouraged.

Check out ATC toyhaulers, not cheap but you often get what you pay for.

RE: Need advise on which new truck - 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton?

He just wants to be sure that he has all the truck necessary to easily and safely pull the new rig The cowboys of old always knew that you cannot have too much horse.

RE: First barrage with the dealer

I am opening up the flood gates to the thoughts and opinions of all of you... I would start with another dealer that sells what you want and see what their prices are. Dealers play the game every day and are very good at it, you play it once in a great while and can be rusty. Always enter the dealers lot with your walking shoes on. Never be afraid to walk from a deal that is not comfortable to you.
