  1. We hope you liked this video. It took quite a bit to bring it all together, but it's something we've been wanting to make since we launched our channel. Yes.. it's a long one… we know! LOL But we hope it has lot's of useful information. As always, feel free to post any questions in the comments area below and we'll answer as quickly as we can. Thanks for watching! 😊

  2. what was the 5Th wheel hitch in your truck model and part # I am looking at trucks like yours I have a pullrite super glide auto slider, I am debating to use it in a new truck with a 8'bed my rv is  just under 10.000 gvw you did a great vid any info would be great thanks Mark

  3. Was wondering if i could get the exact specs of your 2017 lariat as well as the gear ratios for the rear axle were looking at purchasing a Luxe 42MD and just want to make sure we pirchase the right truck to pull thia thing any info and help would be greatly appreciated

  4. Curious if you looked at more than just that ONE Ram or not when you went to check them out. I find it hard to believe you couldn't find one with an equivalent gear ratio to that of the Ford you ended up with. My 4th Gen Ram came factory with 4.10 gears and I love it.

  5. I’m one of those bone heads. My camper is gvrw at 17000 on two axles. I had a 2015 F350 regular cab single rear wheel when I got the camper. The 3 hour trip home from the dealership was ok. Truck was sagging a bit but after loading the camper with my stuff including a motorcycle and washer and dryer in the rear and pulling it , I dreaded pulling it again. Couldn’t even go 60mph or it start swaying side to side, every dip over a bridge would bottom the truck suspension out twice over 50 mph. Horrible and actually scary. I didn’t think air bags would have fixed the white knuckles on the steering wheel swaying issue so I got a 2017 f350 crew cab dualy. Wayyyy better but still loose feeling so months later I replaced the ten ply trailer tires with 14 ply. Major improvement. And a few months after I ordered and installed the Joyrider Shock system on my trailer axles along with a heavy duty wet bolt kit and links. Far less if any bucking over bridges and way more stable but I can still see in the mirror that the tail of my trailer bounces to much. Especially compared to my brothers triple axle mobile suites toy hauler. Kinda looks like a couple of my leaf spring packs have bent a bit. Been thinking of getting heavier springs or trading camper in.

  6. Well Done Guys! Very Impressive! This is the best video that I have found with all the overall information that a new 5th wheel trailer owner, or potential owner, should have BEFORE they get started. I find that most videos like this are too wordy and have too much of the "Look at Me" syndrome. But your video was informative, and to the point from start to finish, and the camera work was superbly excecuted. That is to say that the great camera work and editing, made it easier for you to get your information across. Really appreciate you taking the time to make this. I learned a fair amount and I consider myself to be a seasoned trailer tower. Fan for life, as I subscribed! Cheers!

  7. Love your channel however have to disagree with your towing numbers for the Ram Dually. My 2018 3500 CC DRW with HO diesel/Aisn transmission has a GCWR of 39,100 pounds. That is 3k more than your Ford. 5560 Max Payload and 30,190 Max towing. These numbers are for my truck and considerably higher specs than the Ford you are driving. You obviously were not looking at the HO diesel with Aisn transmission when you were truck shopping. You were looking at the nerfed down diesel and lighter duty transmission. You gotta know your specs before posting on the internet. Too bad nobody will see this way down here on the bottom.

  8. I enjoyed your video.
    I learned a lot about driving a fifth wheel or a pickup.
    I’m a class A driver pulling 53’ ,32’, and 28’ foot trailers every day, however I do not own a fifth wheel yet.
    I’m so glad I found your video.
    You and the Mrs. are an awesome team.

    I found this video very enjoyable and informative.
    Thank you for posting.
    You do a great job showing expert knowledge without having a pretentious or condescending tone.
    You have great skills as a trainer.

  9. We just purchased our 2020 GMC DRNALI HD to try hauling a fifth wheel which we have never done but wanted the extra room. We purchased today a used 2011 Keystone Montana MO3400TL11T that has a GVWR of 15640 LBS, the truck has a GVWR of 11350 so here I am looking at what I might have done as far as the truck's ability to handle the fifth wheel. Your video was so informative as we want to go for a short trip now before we go to see some of this country. My wife will retire next June and we want to practice as you showed on the Walmart parking lot. Thank you for this very good and informative video. Let me know if we did good with our purchase. We like and will be moving up to Grand Design 337RLS once I feel comfortable with this one. Thanks again and keep it up.

  10. I have to tell you I have not watched all the video maybe about 31 minutes and all I kept saying to the 1st know she's neath the last 20 minutes was will you guys teach a class I will fly to wherever they had you are and have you teach a class on all of death because I've never driven one of these things either and and that kind of money I cannot afford to throw away so I was thinking of just going to a big truck or school and have them teach me but it's not going to be the same but Hey if you guys ever decide to teach a class let me know put me on your list to be on your email list and email me I would love to how that and I will fly to wherever you are

  11. Great video…but your statement of not being brand loyal… Indian motorcycle shirts. And video of it in the intro, literally the logo. Kinda feels like your a little bit of a fan
