Whoa: You did say you were buying the TV first? Well a 3/4 ton 10 cyl. or Diesel will easily pull your 34' but if you buy the TV 1st and your lady demands the 40' 5th wheel you have just put the cart before the horse because you will need at minimum a 1 ton dually diesel and even that may be light if you buy the AS quality equivalent like an Excel or better yet New Horizons. Definately PICK THE RV FIRST!!

Good point Brad...you must know my wife! Those New Horizons are really nice...but very heavy...maybe need a medium duty truck for one of those.

I am probably too cautious to buy the TV first...with so much uncertainty...not only what...but IF.

Thanks...Tom R

Thumbs up 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 W/Cummins 5.7 Litre Diesel

If you need a great truck for towing, this is the one. Great on power, comfortable with extra cab & 6' bed w/ hard tonneau. Very Stable platform. Mine is 4wd.

And the fuel tank is a miser.. Honest. 16mpg towing 34' w/Slide.

Love it.

I don't think Tom has pulled the Airstream trigger yet......must be the corrosion problem.
