Yeah, we're one of those that upgraded *inside* a year...8 mos. to be exact.
We went from a 34.5' V-Lite 30WIKSS to the sister of the 8285IKWS...(8528IKWS).
WE LOVE our 5er! We started out with a 2011 F150 Eco-Boost with the V-Lite, but very quickly upgraded to a 2013 F250 4X4. The Eco-Boost would pull like crazy with the V-Lite, but as DH phrased it "it didn't have enough ass" and never felt connected to the road.
Now with the 5er, the F250 is awesome! I used to /snort when some said they'd forget they were towing a 5er. I'm now a believer.
Now, if we can just get the weather to behave! We've had the 5er 3 weeks and still haven't had a chance to do the shake down trip. We're in NE LA and are expecting possibly one inch of snow tonight, and Nawlins is in worse shape than we are!
is more than just a smile. I'm green with jealousy that you're nearing retirement!
Welcome to the forum too!
If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
