Our camper is only 3000 *wet weight*, so we should have plenty of headroom for me, DW, dog, a few cases of suds, and maybe some food.....LOL

One thing I am finding about Lance is that they are well made, and the camper came with a sticker certifying its weight.

The Burb has been a trusty TV for many years but sadly she won't carry our truck camper. After launching a nationwide search I was lucky to find our new truck just a few hours away in NJ.

Wasn't looking for a diesel initially but hey, it's never too late to try something new!

This was a one-owner truck, bought, serviced, and traded in at the same dealer in NJ. 81k miles. Not a speck of rust underneath, not even surface rust on the frame. Clean Carfax, no accidents, no title issues. No signs of mods except the oversized tires and tinted windows (dealer removed tint so I could pass inspection).

So here is our new-to-us 2015 Ram 3500 4x4 Laramie Crew Cab Long Box with Cummins diesel. Here is the window sticker from when it was new.

So I guess it's time to sell the Burb. They are super rare to find with the 8.1 anymore.

the BIG question is what to do about my screen name here....LOL



You are a silly feller. You bought a truck you like and nothing dark about this story. Just remember what fuel it likes to enjoy. chevman

Well, Burbman still works. Looks like you live in the Suburbs. [emoticon]

Congrats on the Diesel. I’m probably going to be looking for one very soon.

Thanks!

Congrats on the Cummins, Burbman! Looks like new in the pic.

As for your comment about the reduced payload and tow capacity with the Aisin, both the 68RFE and Aisin equipped LB SRW trucks have the same 12,300 lb. GVWR. The extra weight of the Aisin (~150 lbs. heavier than the 68RFE) has to deducted from the same GVWR leaving less remaining for payload and tow capacity.

Ummm, yeah.
If you'd read any of his other posts you'd know that he's restoring a Lance camper. [emoticon]

Thanks for the tip though. [emoticon]
