    We are considering purchasing a fifth wheel that will weigh about 13000lb loaded. I have been thinking about looking for an Isuzu N or F series truck for towing the camper and have been wondering if any body out there has had experience with these trucks and how they perform?

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    Welcome to the forum Lee. I know you have research but if not you may find useful info here.

    I did use one of these trucks with the van body. Not for rving.Rode and drovewell but didn't like sitting right out front. Never wanted to be the first one there if I had a wreck:eek::laugh:. Did have a lot of trouble with injectors and inj pump. Always had trouble with tire shimmy on front. It was a 2002 model 26000 GVW

    I would think it would be great for backing up a trailer.

    They are not designed as a tow vehicle.
