Back when it hauled around our previous Slide-On Truck Camper, a Veri-Lite 1130, we called it "Leviathan." 2009 Saw us spend slightly over 4-1/2 months straight, living (and to a great extent, dry camping) in the TC.


Low mileage 5.9. I know some guys here in Idaho who would give you good money for that old gem.

Absolutely, it should count.

And, you get more points on your CYLINDER INDEX (C.I) Rating ...
( which is of course the sum total of internal combustion cylinders you possess.)

Does my C.I. only count in Gumption County?

Quick pic of a fuel stop on the way from NC to TX... I've posted this set-up before but added the golf cart this year. Fit in the bed like a champ (with the tailgate closed) and the F350 hauled it "like it wasn't even back there"

Use either my Expedition or the F150. Depends on whether or not we have any of the 4 dogs along with us.

TT looks ok, but the TV seems to be squatting. Maybe it's the pic.

It does squat a little even with the WDH bars tension'ed nearly all the way. I do notice the steering feels lighter by the smallest amount but still tows like a dream. I'll try one more link in the chain to see if that changes anything.

First ever RV Rockwood 2306. My V6 noticed it was there, gas mileage was non-existent. I've just picked up a Bully Dog so I can put a towing map on the ECU for more powah.
