X2 on hydraulic disk brakes, MorRyde IS suspension/pinbox, and airbags making for a phenomenal, worry free journey.

What was this thread about? Cannondale vs Yeti vs Trek or Yamaha vs Suzuki vs Honda or something? All six are great, it's the details important to you that should make the decision.

With airbags on the truck for suspension control (NOT for weight carrying) and an air Tri Glude hitch and MORRyde IS suspension I really have to remind myself at times its back there.
Redwood is a good weight for a dually. You should have no problems.

Whoops! I got distracted and thought I was in the cummins vs ford debate on another thread. Sorry for the confusion on the second part of this post. My bad.

There have been many improvements in all of the manufacturers trucks in the last 10 years, mast notibly in the last 3 years. I am currently pulling my Trilogy at a GCVWR of about 26,000 lbs and it handles like a dream behind my 2014 MAXTOW DRW truck. Without my 14,000 lb GVWR equipment that was factory installed on this truck, I would not be able to pull this camper with it. All new trucks are NOT created equal! I had to special order this unit and wait 2 months for it, as most of the features that I specified are not comonly ordered. Most DRW trucks on the lot only have 10 or 12K springs installed, and they do not floor plan trucks with the 4.10 axles to be able to pull that amount of weight.

Basic point is to always look over the equipage on a truck before buying it as a working truck, Dealers will cut options and ratings on equipment to have trucks that appeal to more Weekenders at a lower price, then later when they go to hook up a load, they realize the reason the truck that they walked away from has a higher price tag! Adding the carrying capacity is always more expensive than getting it properly equipped from the beginning. Last trip I saw a Ford F450 Squat with a lighter camper than mine because of having the wrong spring capacity, even though it had a light hauler bed on it instead of a regular truck bed!

Just came from the Hershey show. Luxe was a stand out for not only quality but their contemporary look. DW loved their attention to detail. They are on our short list.

I don't know why the manudactures keep adding width. When you add awnings sticking out you are over the Dot 102 width. On some skinny roads every inch less can be a good thing

My husband and I toured both of the Augusta RV brands at the Hershey PA RV Show in September, 2015. The Luxe and Ambition models were very nice. The company representative said their company is very willing to customize their products to accommodate the needs of their customers.
