The Livin Lite camper looks good in the back of those trucks.

They do pull great. Esp since I had a 2007 Dodge Durango w/ a Hemi previously. That got around 10.7 MPG, the Ram get 12.9 MPG for the same 600 mile trip!

Can we assume you buy & sell regularly, or otherwise haul full vehicles for fun or profit?

Nice.

I ended up with a Lance Max 1181 (11.5' floor/~19.5' length w/11' slide). Solar, rear camara, Onan generator, blah blah blah.

I added an engine block heater cord, camper electrical & frame tie-in kits, rear air bags, F&R mud flaps, side steps, a Hellwig rear swaybar, and class V ~57" hitch extension. The camper is a pig at ~4000#. I've driven it across country and locally with the camper & boat in tow. Got ~13.5 to 14.8 mpgs depending on speed/wind/traffic etc.

I poured a 13'x65' slab for it & the boat on the side of my garage.

Garage
used this to tow to Tahoe in june. wifes 03 Excursion 4x4 7.3. Old girl has 275K and can still haul 8k up I80 at 65 over Donner. 4.30 gears and tunned. did about 12mpg. at 75mpg



my truck a 96f250 2x4 7.3 has always towed its life. 175k just got back from Dusy that is one hard tow at 12% grades on single lane roads steep switch backs to Court-wright. going down is the worse.
