Oh and the problems I had were trailer bounce and sway. Very strong winds. When you start bouncing up and down and then the trailer starts swaying all you can do is wait for it to be done. Will not be taking it out again until truck is replaced. Safety is everything.

Honestly, if I could have picked up a DRW for the same price as my 2500, I probably would have. I've seen most of the prices people gave for 2500's here on the forums, I found mine for a few thousand less. Some times you have to go with what speaks to you.

DO IT pull the trigger you won't regret it...
The 6.7 has so much fun power it's silly I tell ya.
Your most difficult decision might just be what color to get

Color is the easy part. It comes in one color, what ever's cheapest! For me, it was Mineral Grey (Which I do love by the way).

About the only color I couldn't come home with is red.. My wife has a loathing for red trucks and the people that drive them

With that said, I almost bought an F350 that was bright red.. very nice and CHEAP FX4.. Decided I would probably get divorced over it.

Good report, SlowLane. The 2500 would be a far better platform for your TT. The 3500 DRW would tow like a dream, and I bet you'd have no bounce or sway.

Must see pics when you purchase. Reps to you for towing safe!

Mineral Grey is the best
