See what you guys made me do.. I'm seriously considering upgrading.. Though a 5500 seems a "little" overkill, I wouldn't have to worry about number crunching, rofl.

Here is my tow rig: 1996 Dodge SLT, V10 Magnum, 4X4, Dually with a Gooseneck hitch, 5th wheel hitch, front and rear hitch. The door says it is just under 12,000 lbs



Here is my new purchase. I figure I will sell this when I am ready to upgrade. I am getting a smoking deal!



The title says this is right at 12,000 lbs. Dry GVW combined is right about 24,000 lbs. Not sure how much I can pack in this baby but, I have scales about 10 miles from my house. I am going to weigh the total, have them tell me what each axle is and then try to distribute my weight accordingly.

It sure beats the little Toyota Motor home I used before for jobs but, it is going to take a ton of gas (literally) to cross the country. I wouldn't think I would have any issues living in this for a few years until I upgrade, It is a nice little pad.
