Thanks for all the info, I have contacted some of the dealers and the best deal seems to be from Dillon (they finally got back to me after I phoned them several times).
my spec is a ram2500 laramie longhorn 6.4,air suspension,5th wheel prep, tow mirrors,20 inch wheels, full length rail, in red and gold trim with tan and beige interior, the price from dillon is $50115 (msrp $62300), so I think this is a good deal.
The only part of the pricing I do not like is the $1195 delivery charge, as I will be going to the dealer to collect !, is this charge normal ?

I believe the delivery charge is from the factory where it's made to the dealers lot. That includes the rail yard and then the transfer trick to the dealership as well.

Congrats on the new truck. I have a very similar truck. Mine is a mega cab but is only the laramie. I'm jealous I wish I had the longhorn. I love the 6.4. It's a monster gas motor and delivers pretty good mileage.

I would say you got a fair deal. I have always looked at the msrp and took 27 percent off. Also never Never pay a dealer a processing fee. That's just profit in there pocket. In 40 years of buying cars and trucks I have had a lot of them tell me no at least 2 times as I'm walking out the door only to call me within hours to say they will make the deal. You must be willing to walk away and stand your ground.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from Roger Williams in Weatherford... worse service than most RV dealers... and they don't sell RVs, they sell cars and trucks. :(

schrederman,

Sounds like dissatisfaction with Williams in Weatherford--story behind your post?
Since I'm in the area, kind of interested...

Joe

Gary, i also bought from Dennis Dillon and had a great experience and i lived 1000 miles away. Worked with a guy named Kim Tolsma. Should still be there as I ordered and picked up my truck in May 2015. Im a big believer in ordering trucks so i get exactly what i want. Dennis Dillon will have the same deep discounts on ordered vehicles as trucks sitting on the lot. This way i only pay for the options i want and nothing i don't.

As you shop 5th wheels, bear in mind you will be limited with a 2500 due to weight capacity.

I plan to get a light 5th wheel max 11500lbs, with the tow capacity of the truck at 13400lbs (with the 5th wheel calculator and not ram figures), I think this should be OK?

The 3500 is such a small bump in price that it would be my choice for a 5th wheel. No one ever complained about having too much truck, and the extra suspension and braking capacity doesn't seem necessary until you might really need it.

Get the 4.10 rear diff gears. The brakes on the 2500 and 3500 are the same and so is the frame. The big difference is the rear coils vs leafs on the 3500. DD also sells RV's and has a large selection of them. He could probably put a nice package together for you.

A 2500 will have 3000lbs + for payload with the 6.4 . I agree on getting the 4.10s. Should be plenty for an 11,500 GVW 5er. My 11,500 is a light also. It weighs in around 9000lbs. I have a 12 CTD 2500. I'm over GVW by 200lbs but under RAWR by 1300lbs. Pulls great. IMO a 6.4 with 4.10s would do fine too. Got the CTD because we tow mainly hills and mtns.
With that being said if a 3500 was sitting on the lot with a 6.4 and 4.10s in a decent trim level I'd spring the extra $800 or so for it.
