I am about to purchase a 2008 CF28RL and would like to hear from anyone who either has one or has had one...good things or bad things. This will be our first 5th wheel...started with pop up then to hybred and now the 5th wheel, seems to be the natural progression of things. The person I am getting it from pulls it with a 2008 F150 and I have a 2008 Titan. Any info on towing would be helpful also

Bob...Welcome to theforum, I think youll be very happy with your choice of fifth wheels, I know we are...We owned two different travel trailers and now the Crossroads 30sk, and thisFW iswaayyy better...Easy to pull, easier to hook and unhook, and way more room(both in floorspace and head space!)...The company seems to really stand behind their product also...The dry weight of the28rl iswithin the towing capacity of your Titan, but if you plan on long trips thru the mountains, youd be better off towing with a 3/4 ton truck if for no other reason than to be able to control and stop betterin an emergency...

We started out with a 32' Airstream TT and went to a 05 Cruiser 29RK. You will love the 5th wheel once you spend a little time with it.

I have neverpulled a TT but I think you will notice the wind more in a 5er. Head winds hurt mileage and cross winds tend to blow you around a little. Now for the good part. 5ers do not sway or swerve. They will follow you whereever you take them. They back up a little diferent than a bumper hitch but after you become acustom to the slower turning I think you will find they are easier to back than a bumper hitch. The truck actually rides better also as some of the hitch weight goes on the frount axle. I think you will enjoy all the additional room. Good Camping
