Finally got a picture to post!

Finally got the new tow vehicle hooked up to the toyhauler and got a picture to post! Thought I would share.

The truck is a 2013 Ram 3500 4x4 CC LB DRW. I got the B&W Companion hitch that drops into the 5th wheel prep pucks in the bed. It is rated for 25k and it is a beast. The TH is the Raptor 355TS.

Finally got the hitch put together and installed this weekend and took it for a test drive. Loved the way it pulled and - more importantly - stopped. The exhaust brake on the Ram is very nice.

Loaded up, the truck squatted some, but a 4' level on the bed rail still showed half a bubble high toward the rear, so no air bags needed for leveling. With the B&W mounted in the middle set of holes (vertically), a 4' level on the kitchen floor in the Raptor was perfectly level.

I think we're ready to go,now!
