Question for those of you that went to a MD TV I'm looking at a M2 sport chassis. Is there any real down side to it? I think it would handle the rv much better then the F-350 dually I'm using now.

I don't have a MD Tow vehicle but have checked them out in the past and believe they would handle your trailer better than your Ford 350. The down side is that they can primarily only handle towing your trailer where your 350 will allow you to haul things when not being used to tow.

I loved my GMC Topkick, I bought it new and GM could not find the problem that it would just stop running all the time.
Upside it really handled and controlled the 5ver great, it could pull anything.
Downside was it was slower going up hills, hard riding when not pulling, special insurance required.
GM does not make them anymore, GMC took mine back and offered me a deal on the GMC duel wheel Denali.

Try National General. That is where my trailer is insured. They're affiliated with Good Sam. Also, you might PM Millie Plato (sew2bhappy) as they have a big rig and can probably give you some insight.
