    I have a 40ft. 5thwheel, I need a tow truck that I can pull my 20,000lbs 5thwheel and use it too pull a 27ft. boat and also work with landcapping, pulling tractor,backhose and lawnmowers and so on.
    I saw the new international RXT pickup, it look like what I need. It's something like the topkick pickup from GM, but has more power.
    What I want to know is, Do anyone know if you can pull a 5thwheel with it? Is the bed to high.

    Thank you for y'all help :laugh:

    Went by a lot today and seen a GMC C4500 top kick with the pickup bed. Looked like the bed sat about 8" higher than my Ford. It did have a gooseneck hitch in it. Think you would have to change beds to haul a 5th wheel camper. I'm kicking around getting an MDT. Let me know what you decide to do.

    Might check the fifth wheel to see if it can be raised. Hate to see them going down the road and not level. Has to affect towing but, with that vehicle might not matter. What's the matter Shadow, getting scared of that Ford :question: :laugh:

    You can always buy the 4500 cab and chassi and build your bed to your own specs. wouldn't be as cheap maybe but there are endless ways to rig a cab and chassi.

    I know that this is an old thread, but being new I thought I'd throw in on the RXT. There is a 'Hauler' version of the RXT made specifically for 5th wheel. If you're still looking at them, let me know and I'll send a brochure that I found somewhere.

    HMM, Shadow recond how DL knows how the GM diesel smokes smells :eek: Don't you have to be behind to smell it :laugh: :laugh: Maybe that's the reason GM and Ford owners don't like the smell of Cummins Dogde smoke. They never smelled any :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: ;)
