|Which truck needed for 5th Wheel? Power?||Mitch||9-15-17|
|I was thinking about a Class A at first, but have now turned my attention to a 5th Wheel.|
My first question is how much power do I really need to pull a 35 footer? I know you'll tell me to look at weight of trailer, but certainly one truck type with enough power can pull any number of 5th Wheels, with a range of weight in mind.
I'm looking for experience here, not novice advice on the basics. For example: is a Ram Inline 6 diesel better than a Triton v10? Why?
Thanks for exploring the idea with me...

|You know you are opening up Pandora's Box with an open-ended question like that, right?|
So, I thought the best way to respond was with report I saw that is recent, and by a generally reputable source, the US News & World Report, ranking trucks for towing capacity. It is a comprehensive report and you can dig deep.
