RB, A woman who used to work for me told me just yesterday that she and her husband traded their F450 down to an F350 because their insurance company considered the 450 a "commercial vehicle" and it affected their insurance rates. Said the F350 saved them over $600 per year in insurance cost. Might be something to consider if you are looking at something bigger than a 1-ton.

Well, off to Lowes for a section of 6" pvc drain pipe so I can start experimenting with an end cover for the awning that will stay on while on the road. TOWTA said that was good for a free breakfast.

BTW, she didn't say - and I didn't think to ask at the time - what insurance company they have.

Morn'n Capt'n
I already have one comm tagged truck at home, but it is a 3/4 ton, don't know if there is a price difference other than the value of the truck. I am self employed so it would be deductible. The biggest prob would be the initial cost of the truck ! Lol
