We are anxiously looking forward to begin full timing (hopefully this fall). We are considering a Jayco Pinnacle 36 FBTS. Any pros/cons. We would be towing with a Dodge 3500 (gas). Thanks!

What year Dodge and style?
Your biggest issue will be filling up the Dodge with the 5er attached at a gas station fuel island. Remember you will have a 40' + long trailer and this will be over 13' tall. This may not fit in very well in most gas stations and with only a 32 to 33 gallon fuel tank you will be filling up around 300 miles or so.

just my $0.02

We have a Jayco Pinnacle 36REQS and generally don't have problems getting in and out of gas stations along the hi-ways even if there is a structure over the pumps. I tow with a diesel and have the option of using the truck islands if available.

The pinnacle has a pretty heavy pin weight if I remember correctly and isn't a light unit. Just make sure your truck and pinnacle are work together at gross eeigh plus a safety factor. I have a Dodge 2500 6.4 hemi gasser with approx 13000lb tow capacity. You didn't say what model dodge sw or dw. The pinnacles are beautiful looking units.
