Yeah and I think all of the folks with a Dodge Hemi or a Toyota Tundra should do "just fine" with that trailer.

And it should not be any problem getting it to the older Corp of Engineer parks.

Think our standard box Ram 2500 ctd would be a tad overloaded. Besides, DW would never agree to drive.

Yup, my chiropractor's aunt's next door neighbor's father-in-law has one of them suckers. He tows it with a 4 cylinder automatic Ford Ranger and says it does just fine. In fact, he gets 40 MPG towing across the Rockies!

We make jokes about some TVs, but on the RV.net a while back there was some fool towing a Teton with a 3/4 ton Chevy with a D/A. That's what he said, "tows fine, never had a problem."

Ken, my 2003 3500 CTD dually could probably handle it, and you bet it would fit right in in any site that those old COE parks have.

Humm... I'd think my brother's truck would tow it no problem
