I have a deal with Grumbines RV in Harrisburg who is the dealer that the rig will be delivered to from factory, that they will deliver and set it up on our site at Spring Gulch campground. I know I'm putting the cart before the horse, but not wanting another truck payment right now seemed like the way to go. I have been looking at F-350 or 450's desiel's but Andy from Redwood said I would have no problem pulling with the 350. please suggest your thoughts on trucks asI am new to the 5th wheel towing as I have a 31' TT now.

If your looking at a Ford may I suggest looking at the F450, the F350 will do but its nice to have that extra capacity and the 450 has 19 inch tires, abiggerrear end and much more. I tow with a Ram 3500 and with the rig loaded up we are right at the max and may have to look at a 4500

If you are looking at 2011 or later Ford's, the F-450 has the same 17" wheels as the F-350.The 450 does have bigger brakes, axle ratings thesame. It does have a 4:3 gearing compared to a 3:73 in the F-350.The 450 has a 3K lb higher GCWR, but about 300 lb less payload due to it being heavier.
