I love how the color of your truck brings out the same color in your rig....beautiful.....I know.....I'm a girl, but love it!!

It made it! Wow, what a towing experience. 30-40mph crosswind gusts, 15-20 sustained and not a single waggle. Semi's passing and couldn't feel a thing. So excited for our adventures to come!

Beautiful pics! Ours comes off the assembly line on May 23rd and then the long drive across the USA. So We are looking at the end of May for ours. Our current 5th wheel will be going to it's new family tomorrow. Kinda sad. Does your kitchen have the new pull out pantry like qccowboys? Congrats!!

Very Nice! Looks great with that new truck and by the sounds of your drive home I am guessing you are glad you upgraded to that F350DRW

Happy camping and now let the mods begin!

BTW-I know you said you only have the one pic of your combo, but from that pic even with the DRW it seems to be squatting some. If you could post another when you get a chance I'd be curious to see a different angle. Thx
Here's some if my old setup. Trailer was about 9000lbs with a tongue of abou 1100-1200lbs. Notice even with the golf cart the 3/4 ton Chevy doesn't appear to squat as bad as the 1 ton Ford. Personally, and not to stir debate, I think the Fords just squat more. Nevertheless, look at the profile of the trailer. It's fairly level if not a hair nosed down. The truck is pretty level as well. Ideally, this is how you'd want to go down the road.

Very nice! Pretty much the same setup as you just a different FR but same floorplan.

Congrats!
