We compromised

My DW was needing a new vehicle to drive and said that she would like to have a truck. My only comment was "it's going to have to clatter when you start it". So yesterday we both got what we wanted, and the best thing is I get to drive it when the trailer is hooked to it. Can't wait to hook the camper to this thing.

I suspect you're going to like it. I know I like my GMC 2500HD. Great color choice btw.

Looking good! When we bought our 2013 V-Lite 30WIKSS in February we had to buy a truck before we could pick it up. We ended up with a 2013 GMC 2500 HD 4x4 Crew Cab in metallic grey. No complaints so far, except for the gas consumption. It really sucks it up, but it tows great and we feel very safe. Enjoy.

Thanks everyone. My only problem so far is trying to get her to put enough miles on it for the break in period of 500 miles before we go camping next Thursday. I have faith in her that she'll do it. Lol.

If she is like me, that won't be hard to do! I love ours and drive it all the time!
