I'm really curious what the numbers are going to be. Maybe 2017 will be the year of 1000 torques in a light duty?

For $150000.00 you can buy a brand new dually and a 40 ft 5ver. You won't get much of a motorhome for that kind of money not including tow vehicle

True, I bought my 2015 F450 for about 12000 off sticker making it around 62000 I believe and gave 65000 for a brand new 2015 Momentum 385T. I bought the maintenance plan and extended warranty on the F450 so with all of that I'd say $140,000 for everything.

Just to mention the new trucks are really nice and pulling a 5th wheel go down the road as nice as any single rear axle $300,000 plus motorhome. The only thing that goes down thd road better are tag axle motorhomes.
