Advice - Manual or Automatic 
ok so im know im posting this in two places but I just noticed this forum for 5th wheels so ill post my question in both places (maybe ill get double the responses!)

I have been looking to buy a pull vehicle for one of my trucks and am not sure if I should go with automatic or manual transmission. I plan to start taking longer trips ont the road so I would like to know which one is recommended for long trips on rigid terrain. Any advice?

I think it's a personnal choice, I'm sure someone has all the facts & figures, both ways, but I've had my days of "clutching", now I just like to put it in D & go.

Re: Advice - Manual or Automatic 
Are you going to be traveling up and down steep roads in the mountains?

If so, I'd suggest manual transmission. I find that I have much more control ascending and descending steep roads with a manual.
