So I saw Elevation Toy Hauler models at a show in Atlantic City, NJ and really liked the layouts. I haven't seen too many posts on the 3812. They make a lot of claims that their trailers are lighter and towable by a 3/4 Ton truck. Can anyone tell me if they have a 5th Wheeler close to size and weight ( 41', 13460 to 18000 GVWR) if a 3/4 will do it or I need to look into a 1 Ton?

I am looking forward to the unit-- I did a walk around when it arrived at the dealership. It needs to have some minor things repaired, popped molding in closet area. Should there be anything else I look closely at before I take delivery?

Looking forward to being a member of the forum and learning from all of you.

My 2011, 2500 Ram with a Cummins is rated at 14,500. The 2013 Rams will have a higher tow rating, but it's not on there website yet. IMO I would make sure the weight of the camper is below what the weight rating on the truck is. Sure the truck will pull more then what they have it rated it at, but if you get into an accident and your over weight you could be getting big tickets and I have heard of insurance company's not covering you because your over weight.

Happy camping and safe travels
