New member, here.

Looking to gather info for upgrade from a '99 K3500 to something a with a bit more "oomph." We raise horses in East TN and want to upgrade our trailer to an LQ unit. The present truck, which has given outstanding service over the past 7 years, just won't do the job.

I've looked at pick-up replacements and the ticket is almost $60,000 delivered. I think I can do better with a converted HDT (slight possiblity of an MDT).

Anyway, that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!!

Hi Guilherme, and welcome to iRV2. Since we are motorhomers I can't help you with any information regarding a new puller, but I bet between the members and the various forums you will find plenty of helpn in making a decision.
