I don't care.. let them. I've never seen that happen.


In do it because I hang on much busier forums than this and it is not uncommon the have 4 people posting at the same time. Others Never quote and the problem becomes nobody knows who is talking to who. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hey, I thought it was a pretty cool trailer that offered a lot in a lighter platform. The slide looked very slick with much less chance for leaks compared to what I usually see. That goes for the whole rig too.

I don't need a 40 foot long, 20 foot wide house everywhere I go. I would entertain owning a fifth wheel like this in a heart beat. With a fatter wallet of course.

I asked a salesman at CW about the Cougar Half-ton Towables. He was surprised at my question of pin weight and couldn’t tell me what the weight was on the smallest unit, so he went and looked it up. 2200 pounds. I laughed and he stated that he didn’t know of many half tons that had that much payload. They could pull it, though.
The majority of back roads that I have driven in the UK would be no fun in that rig.

Towed a 5er with a 2007 half-ton Chevy for years. BUT, it had no slides and was 25 ft. long. Still, didn't feel I had much reserve. So, generally, it's not a good set-up and they don't even make many that short and light any more. But, like towing anything it's all about the manufacturers tow rating and the actual loaded weight of the thing you're towing. If it fits, its OK.

Truth is. I didn't know I did it until I sent it, and then I didn't know how to change it.

When I bought my 1st half-ton to tow a small 5th wheel I was inexperienced and went half-ton because I thought it would drive and ride more car like and we planned it to also be our only vehicle. But now I realize that the 3/4 and even 1 tons ride and handle just fine but are much more capable. The MPG is a concern but probably not that different.

Yet another of the long line of just enough truck posts.
If you want a fifth wheel, why not just get a 3/4 ton or 1 ton truck and be done with it?
Usually because they tow 5-10 times a year and don't feel like driving a HD truck the rest of the time. Not everyone wants to commute with a 3/4 ton, and if it fits the specs, then why not?
