We just signed the paperwork on a new Ram 3500 SRW Big Horn. Splurged on the Cummins and Aisin transmission. Don't really need it for the current trailer but since we hang on to our vehicles for 10 years or more figured we cover possible 5th wheel.

Looking forward to the first tow in 11 days to Myrtle Beach. Now I just need to get 800 km (500 miles) on it once we pick it up on Wednesday.

Congratulations. I think a 3500 srw diesel is an excellent choice for future as well as for your current trailer. These new diesel trucks are such a privilege to tow with.

Yes been watching Dorian to see what it does and plan to call Lakewood Camping Resort and checking the website a few days before I drive down.
