We tow the same RV with a 18 Ram 3500 Megacab Longhorn CTD 4x4, HD towing and B&W companion. Love it! It is also used as a daily driver sometimes.

Ram: You get that excellent Cummins engine - unfortunately it is in a Ram truck.
Ford: You get that excellent Ford Truck - Unfortunately it comes with the Ford Diesel.
Chevy and GMC: Great engine and Tranny and a great truck. Just buy one!

Expert advice... Decision made!
I dont like the GM bodystyle. Unfortunately..

Think how big they would be if there were only one cylinder.
