Can my SRW gas tow this ???

This month's trailer life had an article on:
http://www.trailerlife.com/rv-traile...zons-majestic/

WOW - triple axle 21,800 lbs and up to $275,000 - doesn't look like $275k to me...
they say you need another 60 or 80k for a tow vehicle?
think @ that weight you might need MDT or HDT

The really funny thing is they talk about 'innovations' in it that have been around for a while... vacuum system, awnings, generators !!!!

even a bigger one:

I liked it and we're going to look at one this summer. The idea of heated floor and REAL wood turns me on. A F450 would pull and stop it with ease.

The pictures didn't do this unit justice.

You'd need a 450 on front and back

I like the idea of 43 ft of living area with a 12 ft garage

I just wish they'd make those high end 5th wheels look a little more modern on the outside. The Redwood looks way better on the outside I think.

They'll paint them anyway that you want......each are custom made.

Good point. I still don't like the square fronts on them. I know it gives them more interior space but they just look like something from the 80's to me, and not the cool stuff! I like the more aerodynamic look of the Redwood.

Ya that was one of my first turn-offs with the Lifestyle's.

I saw a huge New Horizon painted black an silver in Telluride last year, and not impressed at all. The fiberglass work was shoddy and the paint was inconsistent, and it actually looked like a home-made rig. Maybe it was the black.

Agree Brad, saw a new Trilogy & that bubbly side you could see every stud even where there was a frame for a window they obviously didn't install on that model, looked really cheap.
