    Hey GJ--
    I'm thinking of purchasing a 5er. Looking for some input with regard to our OBS trucks and their capabilities.
    Are you towing a TT or 5er?
    Any reason you chose one over the other?

    I like the way 5ers tow, but I lose my truck bed and would have to lose the shell.
    TT are nice too, but a 30' TT is about a 4' longer package than a 30' 5er.
    Too long and I can't get into some spots in the sierras or state parks.

    What weights should I not exceed?
    Not sure if I want to go with a 4.10 rear end as I currently get about 11mpg.

    Pin weight is about 2000# on your typical 30'-32' 5er. That's a lot when you have to add passengers and fuel.

    GJ--We settled on $5K for the truck. As you can see in the pics on CL, it is super clean. I looked at a '05 on Sunday and it was not as clean as this '92. I think I'll be fine with the 3.55 gearing. If not, it doesn't sound too difficult to change it out to a 4.10.

    If you still have one of those bags I'd be more than happy to take one off you hands! I just bought a 95 and the seat keeps going flat on me. Let me know and I'll give you my address and any postage I owe you. I'm in Oklahoma by the way.
