did anyone see the 320BHDS on HGTV?

According to the latest version of the COA magazine which hit our mailbox yesterday, HGTV aired their special on 1/1/13 about the September Hershey show and one couple picked the 320.

Nice we got the magazine the day after the show aired...

According to the HGTV site (RV 2013 : Special : Home & Garden Television) That episode will re-air on 1/11 8:00 PM and 3:00 AM.

If I remember correctly, they chose that one so they could use their existing TV. When they introduced the couple, they showed their current setup and it appeared to be a Dodge Durango hooked up to their TT. If that is the case, I hope they had another "truck" they were going to use to tow with.
Now I will have to DVR it again to check that out. Not sure why I didn't think about that while watching the show the first time.

seriously, a Durango? I used to tow my 7500 lb boat with a Durango. was not such a good idea. cannot imagine towing this thing with a Durango. Great truck, loved it as a family vehicle, but it is not a 3/4 ton.

Like I said, I think that's what it was but I could be wrong. I have the DVR set for the 3AM showing on the 12th and will check the following day.

oh good, maybe they finally got a salesman on camera saying your TV can tow anything on this lot.

Ok, my DVR randomly recorded this last night and it made me think about this post.
At the beginning of the show, it shows the couple's existing setup and best I can tell this is a Durango.




Sorry for the bad pics, took them with my phone from the TV

The couple did mention that they selected this camper because they could use their existing "truck" to pull it. I can only assume that this is what they are referring to.

That is actually a Chrysler Aspen, which is to the Durango as the Denali is to the Tahoe.

We used to own a Durango, and pulled a 7500 boat with it. The brakes were not up to the task. We looked at the Aspen, which has the same drivetrain, but a different rear suspension set-up.

The Salem looks like too much trailer for the Aspen - much less a 320.
