Was close to it's 16k GVWR with the two ATV's in the garage. I can't wait to see how much the new XLR 395AMP will weigh! I'm thinking it's going to be over 15k empty...

New Tow Rig

So, after riding in a friends 2014 Silverado I got the itch for a new truck. After seven great years with the Avalanche (I miss that truck, it doesn't help me that I sold it to a guy at work so I see it every day) I upgraded to a 2014 Silverado. It is amazing what the new 5.3L and 6 speed tranny do to improve the towing experience (9,500 lb tow capacity). I wish I had had this truck when we went out to Yellowstone, I would have been passing the semi's instead of them blowing by me.

A 2011 Rockwood Ultralite 2901SS, they longer make that particular floor plan which is sad because we love it. It is about the same size but a couple hundred pounds lighter than your 2905ss.

The last pic of our rig just before backing it into the barn for storage last fall.
-13 degrees F this morning in Michigan, and a 3' pile of snow in front of the barn door, so no trips planned for the near future

Beautiful rig. We're in Ada and so I share your pain. -10 here this morning. 14 more days until we get out of here and head for Florida. Want to come along?
