    What are you pulling your Momentum with?

    I was wondering what everyone is pulling their Momentums with? If we get ours I will be using a 2006 Ram 3500 DRW Cummins power with a 6 speed manual 2wd. I would like to get a newer Duramax 4wd, but this is what I have at this time.

    I am pulling with a 2011 Ford F-350 DRW 6.7 Diesel. Needed to put Firestone airbags in to level the load.

    If your truck is well maintained and solid, I recommend you keep it.
    New truck MPG is horrible (across all brands)

    Long Island, my husband and I noticed you had air bags listed in your sig line, did you have the air bags installed for this TH or were you using them for a previous 5th? We ordered a 385TH and I believe we have a similar set up as you. We have a 2012 F350 Lariat FX4, DRW, long bed, CC, 6.7PSD with a Reese 20K hitch. The garage will be empty initially, if you don't mind, just curious as to why you needed air bags. Also, did you have to adjust your hitch for this TH in order for it to tow level? As mentioned, ours is on order so we have not hooked up as of yet, we currently have a 40ft 5th, not a TH and not as hitch heavy as this TH, that's why I'm asking about hitch adjustment for leveling.
    Another question, we had some concerns about the brand of tires on this TH, we would have much rather had Goodyear tires. Did you have any concerns regarding the tires? I haven't researched Goodyear's tires needed for this TH yet.
    If anyone else with a momentum 385TH would like to chime in, we would appreciate your responses. Thanks

    Hi Form
    We have 2007 F550 4 x 4 DRW with a 8ft pick up bed, it as air bags instead of springs which I think gives a better ride when towing a 5th wheel, plus we can dump the air from the bags to unhitch if needed.
    Up to now towing the Raptor with a full load on the truck has done a good job for us, so hope it will with the new Momentum which we pick up on the 24th it will keep going as the new trucks have a big price on them.

    I would say its the big hills or mountain pass that you need the better braking and load support from a truck that has a load of a big RV like the Momentum or Raptor on the back.

    Have a good year with your new RV's
