With the trailer you are buying, I sure hope you are going to get a DRW truck and not a SRW truck. A DRW truck will have a longer 8' bed unless it is a Ram 3500 DRW with the Mega Cab.

Every day we see people pulling into the campgrounds with SRW trucks and too much trailer. There is fellow here now with a 3/4 ton GMC and a 41' Solitude.

Well once again if he hasn't weighed his rig he may think he is fine! The greatest feature of towing a 5er is also it's worst!!

That feature is that they are extremely stable, even overweight they tow great. All the time a set of Air Bags and it tows level, but what about tires, can they carry the weight. What happens when the deification hits the rotary oscillator??
