Newbie and shopping for an RV

Hello...my name is Al and I'm new to RVing. Anyway, I'm planning on purchasing a Durango R/T and I would like to buy a toyhauler which the Durango could handle the weight without straining. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Howdy and welcome to the forum. Hope you enjoy the site and sure glad you joined us. A question over in the "Toy Hauler or Towing and Tow Vehicle" would probably get you a quicker response. You'll meet plenty of great people with a wealth of knowledge. Good Luck and hope you find the combination that works best for you.

Work and Play makes some great toy haulers as well as Keystone. Biggest thing is pick a floor plan you really like. I had a 27' Work and Play and it was great. I would look into also getting some soft of load distribution anti-sway system. What is the towing capacity of the Durango?

Hey there newbie. I am brand new to this forum as well. Welcome. I joined this forum to help [moderator edit]. I'm in south Florida. I totally agree that Keystone and Work and Play are the way to go. I can answer any questions about hauling with your Durango. I have one. Feel free to contact me at anytime. Happy camping!!!

We have a Keystone Fuzion 412 I know this is a little bigger than you are looking for, but do think the Keystone toyhaulers are worth checking out. Keystone also makes the Raptor line which would probably be good choice. Saying all that make sure you pick a goooood dealer too!

Happy Trails!
