Is my truck capable of towing my rv.

This is a lot of great information. We too are looking at the Longhorn LFZ36DB. We plan to keep it at the ranch for weekend living and summer traveling to CO. We have lots of cousins so we really like the bunkhouse. We have a F250 4x4 6.7L. We are worried this 5er is too big for our truck. Of course the ratings say it's ok, but everyone says don't go by the ratings. Steven, what do you think? We are looking out of Austin. Is it best to get a show price (in Feb) or wIt in Mar/Apr when 2016's come out.

Aggie welcome to the forum! I believe your F250 is more then capable of tugging a 36DB around, my 2002 Chevy 2500 has no issues with it in tow.

Specs on the 36DB are as follows: Dry Weight: 10666, GVWR: 13838, Carrying Capacity: 3172, Hitch Weight: 1838, Axle Weight: 8828, Exterior Length: 39' 11", Exterior Height (with A/C): 12' 7", Fresh Water: 54, Black Water: 80, Gray/Galley Water: 80, Tire Size: 235/80R16E

Now, I have not gone to the scales to see what I'm actually at with this setup so the actual numbers may be differ a bit. As far as pricing, I'm not too sure as this was our first rv purchase. Plenty of rver's say RV shows are the way to go, we got what our dealer called "year end" pricing, but we purchased a 2015 not a 2014, not sure how that works! I feel like we got a smoking deal on it so we are happy.
