Another thing, if you are buying new, and if you think you want to add a satellite system later, get it during the purchase.
Have it installed, and have the cost rolled into the loan, easier to pay an extra $3-4/month than coming up with $2500+ to get it later.

Want to make sure we are not overlooking any.

Currently have a 2005 Silverado 2500 Duramax that we pull our boat with. What are your thoughts on pulling the Cyclone 42 with the 2500? Other than regular maintenance and water pumps, truck has been solid. Hate to exchange it for newer (not new) with unknown history. But if its BEST, then I will.

Little late to the might or you might not have enough truck. If you are simply doing a few weekends a year and not going more than 100 miles here and there then you might get by with a 3/4 ton. If you are taking off across the U.S. for extended traveling then you are way short on youir TV.

We have been full time traveling in a F350 dually pulling a 4006 Cyclone, which is probably slightly heavier. There have been several windy days I could not have traveling without the dually plus there have been a couple hard stops I probably could not have made without the dually.

Run the numbers on your weights and don't try to fudge, stay within your limits and be safe my friend.

Just adding a little more experience to the conversation...

We pull our Momentum Toyhauler with a f350 dually. Toyhaulers are definitely heavy on the pin weight as designed. I wouldn't want anything less than the 1 ton DRW to handle the payload demands.
