    What kind of vehicle to tow a fifth wheel

    We pull a 700okg rig with a chevy 3/4 ton duramax diesel (automatic) with no difficulty. When we bought we thought about noise and the Chevy or the GM diesels are by far the quietest diesel trucks on the market. Diesel will cost about 1500$ more but it is worth the investment....good luck

    We wants it, now I know and I hope you get all you need. We'll look forward to seeing Idaho and hope to catch up with you next year.

    pbb 2005, we appreciate you input and it was very timely - last weekend we found a small company here that imports both the Dodge and Chevy's to Aus and has them converted to right hand drive. The chevy was a 2500hd Silverado with a 6.6 diesel duramax, long wheel base, 4 door. Loved it, leather and all the bells and whistles. I reckon that's our choice. A bit pricey over here though, $110,000 Ausd. ($81,000US). I think I can do better on your side of the pond.

    Thanks very much for the advise, it helps to get some qualified opinion. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
