Thanks for the comments -- I had a 2005 F-350 dually and was not comfortable being at the maximum towing capacity. Hind site is always 20/20, but I learned as others that have gone the HDT route, I COULD have saved $$$$ by buying an HDT initially.

Picture of her in previous life.

Life is short, death is long, enjoy it while you can.
Happy Trails,
John

John,
Your rig is gorgeous! I am trying to decide... was it a deep blue in its'previous Nascar life and you painted it black ... or was it always black?

Always black -- the before (NASCAR) picture is deceiving. In fact, we thought we were buying a blue truck only to get to NC and see that it was black. Oh well!

Thanks for all the comments -- she pales in comparison to Dwayne & Danette's rig . I'll get there, taking it slow and easy to keep DW happy!

Thanks for the Roses on our rig, But you have a find rig to start with, as you start going on trips you will add things that you have seen or wanted. My main project now is i am building a 70' long x 18'w garage next to the house to keep it in, Can't wait until April to start our trips. Hope to meet you on the road.
