Dodge Diesel Bighorn and Heartland Bighorn Fifth Wheel

Dodge Diesel Bighorn and Heartland Bighorn Fifth Wheel

I have a owned several older Dodge diesel Ram 3500 Pickups that I have used for my Lance Truck Camper and to tow a 35' Heartland Bighorn fifth wheel.

The Ram heavy duty always gets the job done, but I feel like the manual transmission performed better than the automatic that I owned when it comes to heavy loads and mountain terrain.

I really did like the engine exhaust brake on my automatic. I had one installed on the manual because it wasn't a standard option when I owned my first Dodge diesel.

I am in the market for another truck and would like to know how the GMC or Ford heavy duty models compare from anyone who has owned or experienced both.
