B & L Express make thier move
First of all a big thanks to all of you who gave us input concerning our questions about fifth wheeling. Linda and I decided to make the move and now have ordered a 2004 GMC 2500HD Durmax with an Allison transmision and a 2004 2980RL Montana 5th wheel. Both units should be here in about 7 weeks. Needless to say we are excited and can hardly wait to make our first trip. My only concern came up after we got home and I read the fine print on the specs for the 2980RL and noticed that the hitch weight is 2300 #'s which puts us about 400 #'s over the 9100 # GVWR. The dry weight for the 2980RL is 10,030 #'s so there is no issue with the GVWR for the truck (22,000#'s). Linda says I just worry too much --well maybe so but I'd take any input from those of you who have more experience than we do. Oh--I'm 6 months away from making the concept of having fun a 365 day a year job instead of going to work.
