Best Tow vehicle for 2013 International 28 Serenity

Just curious as to other opinions as I am in the market for a new truck. Would like something rated to pull >10K lbs.

That's too easy, what else would you do with it?

Easier on everybody if you just did a search. It's one of those "which religion do you recommend" type questions and it has been argued pretty much to death.

I want a 2016 Titan with a 5.0 liter Cummins but I suspect it won't fit in my Christmas stocking.

Buy what you like. Just make sure it is rated to pull as much as you need.

BTW, I like Chevy trucks.

No such thing as the best tow vehicle or tires or WD hitch. If there was there would only be one make available of each.

how much you want to spend on NEW truck. The new ram diesels are nice i hear. there is the diesel premium (+5K) to consider. the engine will get better MPG towing and non towing and the tow capacity is nice.

of course there is the Chevy, Ford, Toyota, Ram etc gassers to consider. The Chev/GMC duramax is for sure a good tow vehicle..

it going to be a fun time.. drive a few and see what you like to ride in.

There are many options out there rated at 10k pulling.

There are a couple of additional specifications you need to consider as well. First, is cargo capacity and second, is hitch class. If you buy a truck with 10k lb. pulling, 1500 lb. cargo capacity with a class IV hitch, you are already sorely limited on tongue weight if you planning to tow some of the larger Airstreams.

FORD IS SHORT FORM FOR: FORD OWNERS RECOMMEND DODGE !
I took their recommendation, never looked back and LOVE our RAM diesel, pulling our 30' Classic W/S.
Bought it new in 06 and still trouble free with 220,000 miles, glad that I listened !!

No, its more likely "Found On Road, Dead" or "Fix Or Repair Daily"

I'll go quietly, officer...

Can you tell I'm a Toyota guy?

Here we go again!!! I got the best, no I got the best, no I got the best discussion. What all you non Ford guys don't know is that FORD stands for "FIRST ON RACE DAY". All joking aside, the last I know the Ford Super Duty had the largest frame of all the full sized pickup trucks.
