Mighty Long Rig

I bought a new 36CKTS in August. During the time that I was looking at new RV's I only paid passing attention to the exterior of the units. I was more concerned about the floor plan. While stopped at a rest area in Missouri I noticed a semi parking on the other side of my unit. I thought it would make an interesting picture to highlight the overall length of a long wheel base cc dually and 39 ft 5'er.

That is so funny, my husband and I just bought a 2013 Thunderbolt XLR Toy Hauler 5th wheel, we had stopped at a rest stop in the way home and parked next to a semi truck, which I found is the same height as our new rig, that was scary. No more just pulling into gas stations for diesel, and I found a great web site called Fuel Stops, it can be for any highway. Nice talking to you

DH took the same sort of picture at a rest stop in Alabama.


If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

F250 Super Duty 2013 Tuxedo Black "Biff"

OK, so where are the pictures? We stopped at a fuel stop and the building was on a hill so that you were able to see across the top of the tractor trailers and our CC as you were descending the steps. Holy moly! We are the same size! I didn't take a pic.

The box size on a standard single is 53 feet and the cab section is probably pretty standard also. My math lead me to believe that my CC 2012 36RE, and PSD F350 DRW Lariat Crew Cab is about 7 feet shorter than those big rigs I also have spent the night boon docked next to them.

Last season, we saw a bus conversion in Eastern WA. It was one of those "bendy" buses, a German M.A.N. 65-foot articulated single-decker. Judging by the paint scheme it had originally been a Seattle Metro Transit rig. It was on the move when we saw it, so we didn't get a look inside.
