Hello Everyone

We are getting ready to take delivery our a 2011 Cougar 26SAB. This is our first 5th Wheel. We are moving up from a small travel trailer. For the time being I am going to pull the camper with a 2000 Chev 1500 Z71 4 x4.

Hello and welcome from a fellow Cougar owner. I hope you are as happy with yours as I have been with mine. I've had no issues of which to speak. Enjoy!

to the forum and to fifth wheeling. There's lots of good information about fifth wheeling in the various forum sections. Look around and check things out.

Your comment about using a 2000 half ton "temporarily" has a caution that should go with it. Although the 26SAB is advertised as "half ton towable" if you read the small print, it says, "by a properly equipped tow vehicle"

The 26SAB is a tall order for a conventionally equipped half ton, so be on the lookout for the salesman to be saying things in "HIS" best interest, but possibly not in "YOUR" best interest. Check your numbers carefully. You may well find that by the time you install a hitch in your truck, with a full tank of gas, and a few things in your new RV to make it ready for camping, you're over your max payload even before you put passengers in the truck. Check those ratings carefully before you hit the road.

Again, welcome to the forum, we're happy you decided to join our group.
