I love my Ram, that EcoDiesel is a tempting upgrade. Think we'll ride it out a year to see if we want bigger or not. But so far, buying a Ram was the best decision I ever made.







Ok I lied, marrying my wife was the best decision I ever made. Switching to the Ram is high up on my list though.

LOL - glad you put the final note that actually your wife rates higher....

I'm never ran a Dodge product but I hear good things about them. I know a lot of the farmers in our country like them and they are normally very hard on iron.

My concern will be the low GVWR on these things (around 7,000) is that heavy enough for a longer trailer like the 27,28 or 30?

Thanks

Doug

I try to keep myself from boiling when I hear talk of GVWR, but I know these topics will never end on these RV forums. Set up your hitch properly and go have fun!

Ok, I digress... after attaching my AS to my tiny GVWR RAM EcoDiesel my insurance company used their psychic ability and cancelled my policy (or it could have been an anonymous tip from a disgruntled AirForums member) just about the same time my RAM exploded, raining down shrapnel on all those who claim I'm a menace to society

I feel so much better.

Still luv ya arcticfox

LOL - gee Ron get your blood pressure back down....lol
This isn't a discussion about hockey!....

I'm running a F150 pulling a 28' so I know what you mean about GVWR and setting up your hitch properly.

Cheers
Doug

I miss my GL 450, and I know the hitch could be modified, but don't feel comfortable about the GL's rear end and tranny.

Our 'Burb gets the job done quite nicely. ;-)

This photo is from about 2 years ago, so lots of work has been done since on the trailer but you get the idea. 2005 Tundra with the 4.7 V8 and towing package.

I've been told my Flex is too big for the 'small' thread, but it's certainly a lot smaller than the Suburbans and F150s on here! Luckily it is just the right size for our trailer.
