Non-Biased Tow Vehicle Comparison:

The RV Odd Couple compare the pros and cons to the Ford Super Duty F-350, Dodge Ram 3500, and the GMC Sierra Denali HD 3500. Despite the pros and cons of each tow truck, the reviews on the GMC made it an easy decision.

The 3500 GMC Sierra has an Allison 1000 Transmission, 445 Horsepower, 910 Torque, 3.73 Axle Ratio, and a Duramax 6.6 Turbo Diesel V-8 Engine. The GMC Denali has the best fuel efficiency and emissions in its class, One-Ton Heavy-Duty Trucks.

The RV Odd Couple share about how they picked their tow vehicle and how their truck drives with the RV and unhitched. They describe how the truck feels when towing and how in control it feels. They describe the smoothness of the ride when they are not attached to the RV, and honestly share what they hope GMC improves upon.

We were not paid to review these trucks, nor are we expert engineers on the subject. You are ultimately responsible for researching, understanding, and staying within your vehicle weight restrictions. This video is strictly sharing our experience on how we understand these numbers to safely tow our RV. We are endorsing the GMC 3500 Denali because we have had a great experience with our vehicle and it’s been perfect for full-time rving.
