Default Motor home question

What is the best motorhome to pull a 28 to 30 ft stacker? Just thought I would see if I can avoid an error.

Thanks, Don

A diesel pusher would be the best for sure

A friend of mine has a freightliner motor home and pulls a stacker with it.

x2 to Mopar. It's the same as drag racing. Torque throws you off the line, HP pulls you thru the lights... For a transporter, get me going...

If you are looking for something used make sure its a per EGR motor. Im pretty sure they went to the egr in 2002. The EGR in the newer motors are a pain in the butt. We replace quite a few a month where i work. ANd at about 700 for the EGR its not fun.
