    Thanks for all your replies Jubajajoi, that would be good. I am away for the next few days but will be back monday. My 5th wheel is 17,600 pounds and yes by Duramax did pull it - but it was max load and frankly beyond legal limits for the truck had it been stopped - so the Tractor came to be.

    maybe im wrong but unless your duramax weighs 12 thousand pounds you arent at CDL weight and i dont see why theres a problem. but hey if you got the money to spend on a volvo tractor then have fun man! but i think you might need a class A cdl to drive it now because you will definitely be over CDL weight which is 26,001

    actually gets a little better mileage than my Chev Duramx did - and I am not sweating about if I can stop or not - or going uphill at 20mph
