My camper is about 39ft long and loaded ways about 14k lbs. We took about a 1400 mile round trip with our camper to Kentucky Lake from Northeast OH and my 2010 pulled the camper great. I averaged about 11.5-12.5 mpg depending on hills and headwinds and averaged about 72mph. I thought that mileage was great considering I only had about 800 miles on the truck when I started the trip. I have a 15k pullrite hitch and the truck pulled the camper like a champ. The exhaust break with the tow/haul mode works great. I don't think you will have any problem pulling your rig provided it's under 15k.

Sweet Deal!!
Mine is just under 15K. My 96 will pull it at 72 with ease but it only gets around 8 mpg at 72. it's around 6 at 80!!

DSLBURNER,

Is that a sport model, or some other package that they made with color-matched bumpers? I've been waiting for them to do away with all of the chrome...about time!

Do they offer that in other colors, or black only?

NICE TRUCK!

Thanks,
Shawn

The bumpers and grille were ordered unpainted from Mopar and then taken to the body shop for paint. The door handles and mirrors were swapped from a new SLT. You could do this in any color.

Is that part of a package, or just an option when ordering?

I saw the new 'Outdoorsman' package for 2011, and noticed it had grey bumpers...thought that may have been what you did.

Either way, nice looking truck!

Nice job on the color matched bumpers...I hate chrome, but at the same time, really don't want to work on the 2010...it will just make me want to modify it more

Nice rides!

I'm still a little unsure if I like the lines on the 4th Gens. Kinda looks like they bred a Super Doo Doo with a Tundra. I guess take the best lines from the best selling trucks and you will have a winner.
