Thanks again - very fortunate to get it and the truck - timing was right !

it's a 355re model which suggest 35, but specs say 38 and I've not measured

Ah, and thanks for making me look at the specs again - the pin wgt is only 2590, and I read it as 2950 the first time - so I've been wrong all along

Thanks John,

How does the truck tow that? I just purchased a Keystone Laredo 324RL, which weighs in at 10355 with a pin weight of 1955. Im just waiting for my demo day next week so I can pick it up. The specs say 36'7" which is a little bigger than I wanted, but the wife fell in love with this one. I would have been ok with a 30 or 32.

Honestly?
I don't remember - but I know it was on our first trip to Maumel State Park in Arkansas, so somewhere between DFW and Little Rock ?

Given that we have to stop to fill up every 200 miles - ez to forget a fueling stop !

Needed breaking in, air bags, 75 or 80 pounds in the rear tires for support and control, that's it....
Oh, and remembering that a 5er will short cut a turn much more than a bumper pull Swing out to turn !!!!

Have learned in manual mode 6th gear that it will cruise at any speed you want ! Really!! even up and down short 2% grades... on the 3+% or longer grades I would hit the - and it would slip into 5th and regain the speed with ease !

Only variable is how low you want you mpg to be

It really is a easy tow machine, even for us rookies !

Thanks John,

I have towed GN's before but this is my 1st 5er. Im sure that my 06 will be ok, but it doesnt have the power the new 6.7 has and I may need to fill up sonner than 200 miles, but I am a little lighter than you are so it may be the same. I am in the process of intalling new injectors, a little larger, and a new turbo so hopefully that will help too. I think Im also gonna send the FICM out to have the Atlas 40 down loaded as well.

I will post pics when I pick mine up as well.

Melanie I can't tell is your truck 2003 before year with an 05 front clip or is an 05- 07. By the way don't baby theses trucks to much they will hate pulling after a while. Trust me our 2002 F250 4x4 V10 took along time to get use to pulling our 16 ft flatbed because the last owner (only owner) had never pulled a trailer or anything.

Ok then it couldn't be the one I know. I know what you mean stopping all the time. Lately we have so much fun trying to get anywhere with our 86 F150 302 that we barely haul with it much more theses days.
