What a ditz! People actually use them for camping as opposed to using them for food trucks or parking them outside their business to look cool or hip.

Interesting video/footage. Can you say "overkill"? Not very intelligent IMHO. Deceiving at best.
You need a dually 3500 Ram to pull a 22' AS? Where's the marketing peeps from Ram? I would be having a hissie fit. When I saw this, it reminded me of the guy I saw @ the boat ramp 2 weeks ago dumpin' a pair of jet-ski's in da wata with a dually 3500 Ram. Geeminy Christmas. Really? That's overkill. At it's finest.

Doug/dk from pro-pride marketing..why aren't you screaming?

Sometimes Bloomberg can be a little "over-the-top" in their reporting. This is a classic case. Did anyone else notice this, or is it because I just made the switch to a Duramax diesel? C'mon Bloomberg...who's marketing for whom here? HA!

"You need a dually 3500 Ram to pull a 22' AS?" I agree with you here. That's a bit of overkill. Fortunately, most people who are considering buying any new coach will get on one or more of the RV forums and ask some questions.

"When I saw this, it reminded me of the guy I saw @ the boat ramp 2 weeks ago dumpin' a pair of jet-ski's in da wata with a dually 3500 Ram. Geeminy Christmas. Really? That's overkill. At it's finest." Could be. Could also be that he needs the truck for other purposes, and you only saw a small part of his life.

We're talking about switching from our 40' MH to a 34' Airstream from the late 90's. Such a coach has a gross weight of just under 10,000 pounds. An F250-class pickup can handle such a coach. Should we go this route, we'll look not only at F250's but also F350's. Why? The truck will have to carry my tools, and an F350 dually can carry more toys, errr... tools than an F250.
