I should of started with this.
The Fred has no air bags so it’s a bumpy ride. I never thought I would be pulling any car but now I have a 25 ft. boat. Going up the hill it’s not to good. Has anybody experienced from a Fred to diesel pusher. Would I be getting a whole lot more power when the 09 Fred has (300 HP- 620 lbs of torque) and the RED (340HP 660lbs of torque). That’s only 40lbs. Would that make a difference??? I would appreciated any input Thanks

I would think the Red would be superior. Rear engine pusher. Air bags and breaks. No hump in front area. Major item to consider is the floor plan.

Good luck.

I have a 2008 32BA FRED and I love it. That being said I wish the Red was available when I bought the rig. I would have gone with it. Just the air ride and rear diesel alone would have done it for me. I don't plan on trading in my Fred for another 6 years.
