what is that rack over the top and front of your truckView attachment 525682
2016 3500 Laramie 4x4 dually long bed, 6.7 HO Cummins, Aisen transmission, 410 rear end, every option BUT the snow plow. Our 2nd 5th wheel is a 2020 Jayco Seismic. Just shy of 33,000lbs rolling down the road.
We’ve been full timing for over a year now. This truck is AWESOME.
We have driven in rain, wind, over some of the biggest passes in the western states, in the dessert, plains, dirt road, crappy paved roads, you name it we have driven on it. The truck just keeps on pullin’!!!
If you do not get the 8’ box you limit your turning ability due to the danger of the trailer hitting the cab in a 90 degree turn. I have had to make this type of turn a couple times. You sometimes just cannot predict or avoid it.
I am a retired truck driver. Not to insult anyone or discount their OPINION, but ask a truck driver about percentage of rated load capacity and your either gonna get a deer in the headlights look or a massive belly laugh. Professional truck drivers load to the maximum weight every day. Trucks are speced to pull/carry a load. The manufacturer tells you what that is. Believe it or buy a Semi rated for way more than you need and stop worrying! Thats my OPINION and experience. Good Luck in whatever choices you make, and enjoy the lifestyle!!!
