Thatís probably my favorite color for a pickup right now, nice looking truck. My past two vehicles have been white and black. Both are colors I swore I would never own. Should have listened to younger me.

Thank you buddy. Luckily I was able to find the exact truck truck and color combo I was after. It only had 12k miles when I bought it a year ago.

I was raised under the whole ďwaste not, want notĒ premise, so I drive a half ton.

Iím not sure if this kind of diesel counts, but I bet I could out tow you, if it came down to it

My favorite, since nobody's posted one yet:
'93 Chevy 6.5 TD 400K miles over a lot of years and a lot of ground. Took my wife to prom in it, took 5 babies home from the hospital in it. This is in my driveway one year on one of many trips from TX to the Tennessee River.

2012 Ram 2500. Just bough this camper from a TBHíer and swapping stuff from our old bumper pull to this one.

Pulls like a train, especially now that itís deleted and tuned.

Right under 65' if I remember correctly.
My new utility trailer has a 2' longer deck so if I ever do this again I'll be over "legal".

Had a heavy duty rear bumper and 2" recover hitch installed to handle the load. (Thanks Robert T)

I found pulling this way to be really no big deal, just never get in a position to have to back up. I just acted like it was one long trailer.
I figured out in time I needed one extra 5 gallons of fuel added between my Menard lease and the Luling Bucees to make it work.
Others who rode with me were on pins and needles the entire way though.

I've also used this double tow to get Kayaks to where we were camping.



Nice looking new to you trailer Mike, got to love that freight train feeling.

Found an old pic of my 2001 7.3 with the travel trailer.
Then a recent photo after the new wheel package.
Also found a pic of my wonderful wife's BMW X5 diesel in the snow.
For some reason I couldn't find a pic of my 2009 Jetta TDI.
