Took delivery of our 2017 5.0TA today

We want to thank the Forum for all the help--both direct and indirect--in our order & selection process. We took delivery of our RV today. We are going to make many, many memories starting with our maiden voyage.

Awesome times times ahead for you both.

Please be sure to give feedback in the Titan thread about how the towing is.


Edit: ok, apparently there isn't one for the Titan diesel. Let's change that eh?

The Titan XD is available in both gas and diesel versions, although most of the publicity was about the diesel. Tim, which engine does your Titan XD have?

We got the diesel and it tows like a dream. Tons of torque. Got 20 mpg on the 4-day drive to Chilliwack. Will be interesting to see the mileage towing.

Please keep us posted, if I were to get another tow, it would be the diesel Titan. That said I got 19 avg unladen on way to Chilliwack and now avg 15-16 towing with the Ram 8 speed.

Your fabric and flooring choice look beautiful! Can't tell if your Formica is custom too but it all compliments each other nicely. Great look!
