Just Purhased

I've just purchased a Dutchmen 2009 model 24L-M5 5th wheel and need help deciding on a tow vehicle, was considering a Toyota Tundra 5.7L V8 it has 381Hp @ 5600rpm and 401 Torq @ 3600 rpm will this vehicle suffice or do I need to consider a Chev 2500 or GMC 2500 and what about gas vs. diesel

We just got a terrific deal on a 2013 Nissan Titan King Cab. V8, of course. I don't know about your specs, but you might want to include it in your possibilities. We love it, and it has a good hitch and a "tow mode" to calm the transmission down. Good luck!

Is the RV you are pulling a 5th wheel or a trailer The GVWR of my 5th wheel is 10560 lbs. cargo carrying capacity of 3198. Empty weight of approximately 6300 lbs.

We're just pulling a lightweight TT. Your GVWR at 10.5K is over the max towing allowance of the Nissan, which is (depending on model) about 9300 lbs. Sorry.
