All very good advice. The other thing is to decide what you want in a 5vr first then get a truck that can safely pull and STOP it. Don't let the 5vr dealers tell you that the truck you have can pull it. Pay close attention to the weight as stated on the side of the 5vr and in the cabinate. If at all possibel check with others and see what theres actually weighs. What is listed in the book is only an estimate and not the actuall weight. If you are looking at going large on the 5th wheel then start looking at 1 ton duallies and go up real quick. Those big 5vrs weigh over 13k and you will be pushing the max limit.

I thought corporal punishment was out of favor lately? What size paddle do they use to give those lesions?
