I planned on getting my camper out and un-winterizing it last weekend, but ended up cleaning up the basement after all the rain we got Thursday. Now it may be a while as I'd like to get a turkey hunt in there sometime.

Kinda makes me want to get a fifth wheel camper. Do they tow better than a regular bumper hitch ball type travel trailer? Do you have any clearance problems with the trailer and cab, or is it one of those swing away hitches?

Curious how you are coming up with the 1300 of usable payload number? My 7350 GVWR has a payload of 1658 per the sticker.

Hells yes. Plus you can pull a boat behind it.

Whitescrreww77, No Clearance problems. No I don't have the revolution pin box. I have 6.5ft bed and I pull with a gooseneck instead of a fifth wheel. I did put a 5in offset on the goose though.

ragerjr, I'm new to all of this, any way you can please post a photo of the gooseneck connection in the bed? I have the 6.5 bed and I'm looking at all my options.
