Maiden voyage with the fifth wheeler. My 1/2 ton handled the load very well but the RV only weighs 4500 lb with a pin weight of 800 lbs. Very little sway and very easy to hitch and un hitch. Brake setup is a little sensitive compared to pull behind trailers.
Nelly Belle hauling our 4500 lb 1991 25' Cobra fiver Rv. Pin weight is about 800 lbs and leveled truck from its usual rake. Handled like a dream and the 300 did much better than expected.
Sorry a bit fuzzy but this is my vacuum gauge and cup holder
IMG 1207 Tailgate came off a mid 70s Ford PU. Sanded it down and modified the latch system so it would work with my 95. Added the Ford panels from an old tailgate and added LEDs that my son gave me to work with the brake and directionals.
IMG 1208 My fifth wheel hitch. The center section removes and usually stays with the fiver. I do have to remove the cross bed tool box when hauling.
