You'll enjoy the factory tour. We went through a few weeks ago while visiting the area and was impressed with the quality of the Redwoods.
We've had our 36FL for 10 months and have towed in about 15000 miles through the states east of the Mississippi. We plan to travel the western states next year. Our tow vehicle is a 2012 ram 3500 DRW and it handles the rig just fine. Many of the other Redwood owners I know opted for for a dual rear wheel truck due to the pin weight. Mine is 3500 pounds.
If you've never had a diesel truck before you're going to love the power and exhaust brake. I love going down 6% grades nd not having to use my brakes...
Best of luck with the eye surgery and hopefully we'll see you out enjoying retirement.
While you're at the factory ask them about the annual rally.
