Nice truck there. And driving a dually is not a real problem, I sometimes have to walk a little farther, but the DR says walking is good for you anyway.

My new job, the company will furnish me a pick up to drive...it ia "baby truck", a Dodge Ram 1500, extended cab. They were afarid that I'd have touble driving such a big truck ... , Keep teling them no problem and finally had to show him a picture of the rig with the dually.

Enjoy the new ride.

A little late here but dittoes to the other comments. It's very nice! I know you will miss the Burb but this is a much better TV. It will look sweet in front of a new LE

Thanks for the congrats everyone.

Mike....That's my BrakeSmart brake controller that I moved from the burb. I was going to get a new one and leave this one in the burb, but they still haven't started production with the new manufacturer yet.

The DVD player is great. I have one in the burb too. I call it the 'I never have to hear "are we there yet" option'.

HB....We're keeping the burb for our daily driver. It's such a great vehicle for traveling without the coach.

High Desert, Chevy's RULE

Excellent choice! You cannot go wrong with any of the big three. They all have their + and - it is the $weet deal $$$$ that counts.

Now Dave you are my hero. I have been reading all about the Class 8 rigs and I am amazed at the deals out there.

Have you registered it as an RV and do you need a class A to drive it??

At the OASIS campground in Las Vegas there are lot of these big Volvos and T2000 pulling the monster 5th wheels. It is getting a lot more common.

Anyway do not like to hijack the thread congrajulations on that Chevy dually you will love it!!!!

Driving a dually on a daily basis really is NO big deal.. I have done it now for the past 5 years. Sure you have to park a little farther, but I get exercise. After a while, it's just like driving a sportscar, you put it places without thinking.

I really love driving the truck, my new tow boss is SO much nicer than my older truck which I really loved.

Enjoy your truck Wes...
