Nice Rig. We love our 327 and pull it with an F250SRW also. No issues.

YEs, it does pull it without an issue, but I also know I am over my trucks gvwr, not that I think the wheels will pop off or implode. I just know my future holds a 1 ton in it.

To be honest it tows much better than I expected, we spent last weekend in New Hampshire it towed through the mountains without any hesitation.

I just figured out that our setup necessitates a new drivers license type. Not sure about your state.

No change in license, but from what I have seen on the roads it wouldn't be a bad idea!

The dodge 3500 has a GVWR over 14k. The Carbon 327 is:
12410 (shipping weight)
4090 (capacity)
= 16500 GVWR

Texas says "a combination of vehicles that has a gross combination weight rating of 26,001 pounds or more, if the gross vehicle weight rating of any vehicle or vehicles in tow is more than 10,000 pounds."

As such, the Class-A is required. If someone can show me that it's not, I'm all ears...

cb1000rider, there's at least one (probably more) existing threads on that topic.
http://keystonerv.org/forums/showthread.php?t=21655

And, in an effort not to veer too far from the OP's fun .....

Congrats to you 1jeep. Wishing you happy trails & many great memories in your new Carbon.
Terri, the Chevy co-pilot
