Smart move, but ----- you did not tell us what you got!
Many of us would like to know. Name the brand and model please!

I am looking for a suitable RV trailer now. That's why I bought my 5.9L
Durango with the 7400 lb rating!

I was very impressed with towing my camper. The truck had more than enough power to tow my camper. I went with Reese weight distribution bars based on cost and how often I go camping,which is not enough.
