My Ford with a 4.10 axle runs about 2300 at 70 mph.

We are looking at a used HDT, either Kenworth or Volvo. A MDT would also work for that load.

For a big trailer, and HDT will fit the bill nicely. Check out my pictures in the link below. Room for the kids too.

Great photos, and a great truck/5th wheel set up!

The Ford F450 appears to be a good choice. You can get a great internet price on a Ford F450. Under $40K sounds great to me.

I'm a little late onto this thread, but you are definately into MDT or HDT territory. For my money a HDT is the way to go. I suggest reading some posts in the MDT and HDT forums on Escapees

Lots of good info there.

Our fiver weighs 15k empy, 17k ready to travel and has a GVWR of 20k - the Volvo handles it with ease.
