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.
