Texas Hill Country and the Third Coast


All the paperwork is completed and we will be picking up a new FR Wildcat 313RE next week. We are trading in 04 Laredo BH. I am very much looking forward to having recliners and loosing the bunks and dinette in favor of the table and chairs. Our 2 daughters are grown and married and we have 3 grand boys. We live in the Texas Hill Country and will mostly use it on the Texas Coast. We are avid boaters and fish inshore as well as offshore. We are avid shooters as well.

Our tow vehicle is an 08 Ram 3500 SRW Quad Cab 4x4 6.7 Cummins. Our current set up is a gooseneck adapter and I will be installing the B&W Companion for the Wildcat.

My wife and I are both in our early fifties.

Hi there! Just checking to see how things are going with your new Wildcat.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

We are on week #2 and really like the layout and looks. A lot of items are maddening. I can't believe the amount of things that got past the factory and the dealer. The living room slide is like a sink hole. I can't sit in a chair without almost falling over backwards. The dealer is picking it up at the house on our return to correct a list of about 10 items.

2014 Silverback 29RE, 2014 Ram 2500 CC 4x4 Hemi 6.4 auto w/ airbags, B&W Companion. Saltwater boats and rum like any good pirate.

Loose the 2nd and the rest will follow.
