Welcome to the growing family! The MB is a beautiful floor plan and they've gotten very popular.

I see you folks are from the O'Fallon area. I work down there quite a bit while staying in my Redwood. Maybe we will meet up some time.

Happy trails

The rv dealers nearly always lie when it comes to the trucks. They only want to sell RVs and if they had told you ahead of time that you didn't have enough truck, you wouldn't have bought the larger trailer.

With large trailers you need a large truck.

Welcome Kirful, hope your MB is all you hoped for, it's a beautiful coach. If we were buying one today iy would be the MB.

As you've already heard from a few others on this forum, the 250 is not the best choice...can it pull the MB, yes, BUT you're so very close to the upper limits [if not over] that your safety margin is all but gone. In the end you would be much better off with a 350, or perhaps a 450 to pull that magnificent rig.
