New member looking to learn about MDT

Hello everyone,

I have come to the site hoping to learn about MDT's and HDT's. I am planning to purchase a very large older 5th wheel RV trailer and know that my current F350 is not going to be enough truck to tow the trailer. The RV trailer is approx. 45' long and weighs approx. 28k pounds ready to live in. I am becoming convinced I will need a minimum class 6 truck and maybe even larger. My preference is to not go larger than a class 6 simply because I would like to use the truck as a truck for other basic truck functions.

Where should I start reading?

Thanks,
Phil

Yeah, that's a lot of trailer.
Start here, lots of fluff and arguing though. Home | Heavy Haulers RV Resource Guide
The best info is from RV Haulers | RV Haulers
He has great diy YouTube videos as well.
