Talked to plenty of MDT owners with for sale signs on their rigs in full timers parks.

Did not say "ALL" this is what I said

"many are dumping their MDT trucks for the 13 and up RAM's"

I could have added Fords and GM's also since that is true too. But the people I talked to were wanting to buy RAM's.

I'll pass. Today an older power stroke pulled up beside me. He looked over with an intimidating stare, and I knew it was on. He floored his throttle pedal and easily blasted past me as I continued driving at the speed I was previously at. White/black/gray smoke poured from his stock exhaust with chrome tip in an impressive display of raw power as he continued to pull away from my Ram, which was still only able to achieve 35 mph due to my keeping the distance between floor and pedal the same.

Despite being unbelievably shamed at such a loss, I still like my 6.7 Cummins more than my previous 6.7 Scorpion. To each their own.

Oh yeah, back to the thread. We like our DRV (DVR, for the auto-correct impaired) but it is a 2016. We looked at some used ones and were impressed by how well they held up compared to other manufacturers, and that helped with our decision to simply get a new one. Sounds like there are lemons no matter which manufacturer you go with, so just make sure you do a very thorough inspection. Water damage will kill your rv.

Ram is making a great truck, but just couldn't let the 'facts' get by without a comment. I could live with any of the 3 if I could afford new.
