I bought her in 2005 while stationed in Alaska for my 21st birthday and she's been with me ever since. Added a rough country 6" lift and 1 ton leafs in the back. She drove from Alaska back to Maine and now we are doing a 2 week Midwest and deep south trip.
Any suggestions, comments and concerns please don't hesitate to let me know.
You might want to take a look at the following threads. They may give you some insight into your truck and how towing a heavy RV can affect its performance.
I'm not suggesting that you "WILL" have all of the same issues, but many of them may "rear their ugly head" at a most inopportune time and put you, your rig and your family in an unsafe situation.... Better to know and make decisions than to think everything is "good to go" and find out at the wrong time that "it ain't what you thought"....
Take a look and see what you think.
