Thanks for the great advice guys. We love the Montana layout but it's a bit much for my truck. We are starting to look smaller, maybe a Jayco Eagle HT 27RS. I wanna stay with the SRW because we'll always want to campout on the OSV at Assateague Island and I prefer my truck than a DRW on the beach. My goal is to keep the truck camper for beach use and have the 5er for non coastal expeditions. I'm investigating the Anderson Ultimate 5th wheel hitch which will keep the bed clear, with minimal work, for the TC. So many options, thankfully retirement is a couple years away yet, lol.
Thanks again
Peace

Everyone always says Duallys are no good in snow. When I was still working, my Dually was my "Go To Vehicle" during snow storms. Now I did have approx 700 or 800 pounds of sand bags in the box all behind the axles. I traveled 50 miles one way to work in Rochester, NY with Lake Effect from Lake Ontario. If roads were real bad, slow down and put it into 4 wheel high and motor on passing all the little 4x4 SUVs in the medium.


My friend in NW WA has a 13 RAM DRW he uses for his Landscaping Business. I asked him how his truck did in the snow this winter.

"It handled awesome with 30psi in the rear tires doing my snow melt and sidewalk shoveling maintenance."


It is those that run their DRW tires at 80 psi, because that is what is on the sidewall!


The TPMS probably won't like running the tires at 30 psi.

My RAM DRW TPMS does not care one bit what air pressure I run. Even if it were a 3500 SRW it would not care either. Only time you would get a ding and light is on a 2500.

YES he is correct there are many that run what their side wall says. What's more funny is when they wonder why their ride is so BAD.
