I went from a Tundra to a 7.3L SRW to a 6.7L DRW. I bought the dually before the big toy hauler thankfully.

Good choice. Itís good that you didnít try to justify how you could tow with an undersized truck. It seems like a lot if people do that.

I tried to do my research before I bought either. We had made the mistake (for us) of buying a gas class A in 2015. We listened to older couples from our old camping group and it was not the best choice for us.

Finally sold the MH’s last April and in May bought my truck, a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 4 door short bed diesel with 46k on it.

A slider hitch works great in the 6.5 bed.

The main reason for the srw short bed was so it would fit in my garage, we get snow and hail here in Colorado.

Now the 5th wheel shopping was fun. I had to rein in my wife a little on the size.

We finally settled on a Keystone Cougar 30 RSL at 34 feet.

I would have saved myself some grief and some money if I did my research like you did. I started out with an F150 eco boost and upgraded to a diesel F250 a year later. Live and learn.
