FunHome: pics coming next week. It is a 1994 with only 70,000 miles!
Asking 28,000 for a quick sale, 12ft motorhome with sculpted walls, carpet, small gas powered Honda gen, roof air. Has bunk beds and 4 captains chairs in it now.
Very nice rig. Needs finished to live in.

One of my company trucks is a Dodge 3500 Cummins power. It pulls a gooseneck every day at 15.000 lbs. trailer and load. Just make sure you opt for the bigger brakes and axles.

Don't forget anything over 26,001 combined weight requires a CDL and requires you to follow all the same rules. At times not worth it.

i believe a CDL is only required for commercial use. This private use and it can be registered as an RV

I'm pretty sure all you will need is a Grand Cherokee. Saw one towing a 42 Fountain today and I would think it would stop just fine.

Don't worry about that 6500 lb tow rating they can tow more than that.
