It was falsely stated in post #32 that "Everyone on this forum is in love with Dually" and, for the record, I am not an "outlier".
Like Capt.John I "never wanted one or a long bed". I have more than enough TV for the mission (Yes , went to the scales fully loaded) and have no plans to replace my 5er with a larger unit. And we have no plans to ever full time as well.
Having DW discuss what she heard at the "campfire" is not a bad thing as it helped you make a rational "joint" decision on a major purchase. As for the "year of her talking" well, we all know what that is in translation.
One guy on this forum posted that his DW came home from the dealer in a brand new DRW and that he was unaware of her intentions to purchase.
Put in simple terms,if my DW came home with a major purchase of that magnitude without my knowledge she better have her attorney in the passengers seat.

Only 3 things we discuss', real estate, vehicles, and 5ers. I always gave her more say in home purchases and 5ers. In nearly 50 years of marriage this is the 1st time I purchased the type of vehicle that is my driver at her wish. It got to the point even turning off my hearing aids did not work, another 1st.

I rephrase my statement then, there is a strong preference for DRW on this forum. By "outlier" I just meant you are in the minority, those who do not love DRW.

I'm not sure that those that like SRW are in the minority. Those that like DRW really like their DRWs and are proud of them and I don't blame them. They really are great towing vehicles. For some like myself they just don't fit in my plans and I will choose an RV that fits within those confines.

Yeah....What he said!!!
I am comfortably within the specs and maximums for my TV and 5er combo.I have about 600 lbs. of cargo weight available. When I weighed at the scales I had everything I could think of loaded. Bikes.tools,clothes,food ect... Even had a generator and separate fuel tank (full) in the TV. Normally I do not travel with the tank (12 gallons) full.
If I ever change my 5er it will be for something smaller than what I have now. But for now this floor plan is perfect.

Hey penra,no offense man. Duallies have their place for sure,in fact there are many 2500s out there that should be duallies. But that's another thread I'm sure. I had a guy the other day tell me he was towing a 41 foot 5er with a 2500 Diesel. Yikes!!!
Enjoy your rig !!

Sounds like my neighbor. He has a 2017 F250 diesel and pulling a new 41' Montana. To make matters worse with a 331 ratio. His pw is higher than his payload.

If his F250 is a Lariat, KR or Platinum, then his PW is probably double (or more) his payload.....

But it is an xlt. Not a lot of options. When he gets home next month from up north I'm going to take a look.

PW? Where is the glossary?

GVW=gross vehicle weight
GVWR=gross vehicle weight ?
DRW=dual rear wheels
SRW=single rear wheel
TV=tow vehicle
TT=travel trailer
FW=fifth wheel
PW=pin weight?
DW=dear wife?
How am I doing?
