    I have a 25' 5th wheel and I want to know if I take the 5th wheel from kansas to Ohio in July what size truck would I need to pull the trailer easily. I don't want to put too much stress on the truck that it ends up breaking down on me half way. can anyone help :question:

    There are a lot of newer 1/2 ton trucks out there now days that can tow that trailer. You would be better off with a 3/4 ton though, in my opinion. Weight of the trailer would determine what 1/2 ton truck you could use and you did not mention that. Get the weight of the trailer and shop knowing what you need. Make sure the truck you buy is rated to tow it.

    I agree with Ken, 3/4 ton would be better.

    I made the mistake years ago going with 1/2 ton and should have gone with 3/4 ton. Go for the extra and you won't regret it for future use. JMO
