When we were in Ouray last year there was a similar setup as Groover mentioned. Full size big truck with sleeper, had a smart car right behind the cab then the massive fifth wheel toy hauler that had a nice SXS in it.

Check out the Escapee's forum board under the HDT sub threads and you will learn a lot of info on lot's of us that use class 8 tractors to tow a heavy 5th wheel. I pull with a Kenworth

What kind of MPG do they get pulling a fifth wheel?

around 7 is what I get with a Cummins 8.3. You don't buy them for fuel efficiency!

That 5th wheel is tiny compared to this 57ft.

Not sure what the other side looks like, but that side has almost no windows in it.

Our 2010 Fuzion has the red walls on the slide-outs. We had to buy a red sewer hose to match the red walls. [emoticon]

Day Cab wouldn't be my first choice of a HD truck to pull a RV with. Must be used for business too.
