So we're looking at a used 42' NH 5er with the following ratings.
- GVWR 26,500
- Dry weight 20,300
- Pin weight 4,250, I believe this is an empty pin weight so I suspect loaded it could reach as high as 6,500
So now I need to figure out what I could to pull it with.
The original owner pulled it with a 2008 F450 although I don't know its specification.
I know an HDT could pull it easily but the physical size and entry height is more than my DW wants to deal with and I'm still concerned loading our large dogs as they get older.
I'm scanning both Ford and Dodge specification but figuring what would be the best combination is not something that I normally do so any help or suggenstions would be great. I am leaning toward a 4x4 so I could handle a wider range of terrain.
BTW, the Ford King Cab looks nice
