Big Bird -
Your story sounds a lot like ours. Like you said, Hawaii, Europe, cruises. Add to that years of snow skiing trips in the US, Canada, and Down Under. Along the way we did lots of tent camping. However, we decided to rent a trailer for a trip to Utah/Colorado this past September and we both really enjoyed it. So ... traded the F150 for a F350 in October and we expect to pick up our Sierra 345RET in a couple of weeks (like you I had a fondness for the Montanas but also couldn't justify the price in this buyer's market). Have ordered the hitch and other accessories. We can hardly wait to get on the road.
BTW -- That is one BEAUTIFUL rig! I'm sure you'll really enjoy it.
