Welcome Ken & Judie -
I notice that you have submitted a similar post in the Prospective Owner's Section of the forum. There, you indicated that you are new to the 5th wheel experience and that your tow vehicle is a 1 ton and were seeking advice about this combination.

Rather than have our members answer basically the same question in two different places on the forum, perhaps we can "steer" any comments, observations and advice to your post in the Prospective Owner's category.

Again, welcome to the forum and I'm sure you will get some feedback from other 5th wheel members and hopefully from some of our Raptor owners.

Yes welcome to your NNW friends, many parks in Washington and Oregon have many close low hanging trees, so be careful!

Enjoy the hunt, and with a 1 ton, you have a lot of options.
