Have an LF297RLS today but am thinking of going bigger. Have been looking at a 3X. For those of you with 3Xs, what model do you have and what are you towing them with? Wondering how big of a truck I'll need. Assuming I'll need a 350, but interested in real world feedback. Thanks.

Thanks. I just walked through a 387RBS at Lazydays in Longmont, CO. Beautiful unit. I'm leaning toward that one as well. Love the Front Living Room.

I have a Roamer 374bhs which has the same GVWR but a pin weight that's 600lbs lighter. I'm towing mine with a SRW RAM 3500. I'm quite happy towing wise but I do wish I could select the 3.73 rear axle. I wouldn't think a dually is needed for the towing weight but for the pin weight I would personally really be thinking about a dually. I'm hoping to weigh mine soon.

My wifes sister has a 3x349RLS and they tow with a 2016 Chevy 2500HD. Doesn't have any issues. Power wise there will be no difference between 3/4 or 1 tons, as long as the axle ratio is the same. Some 1 tons do offer optional gear ratios. Gm does not.
