Default New motorhome

Well, not exactly a motorhome, but it's as close as I'm gonna get.
Maybe in a year or two I can update what moves it around. I have to
say though, a modified 12 valve Cummins with a NV5600 six speed pulls
like a freight train.

Lots easier to park than a large motor home too!!

I like it alot. Plenty of room for you and the Mrs. to live in. Makes some good sence to me. Yea the Cummins has a reputation for sure......

That box makes the dually look small. They sure keep finding ways to make things bigger! Pretty cool!

We're headed to Palo Duro canyon over the labor day weekend for a test run. I added some frame mounted tie downs & have some overload bump stops on the way to lift the rear up a bit. I'm setting it up to tow my Jeep so we can get out in the boonies & do some Jeeping.

Nice.

I've had 5th wheels and motor homes but I've always wanted a truck camper, something small enough to use for road trips but not have to worry about planning fuel stops and small enough to pull into roadside restuarants and places of interest along the way, something to tow the boat to the lake for the week-end and give someplace to shelter from the weather if need be.

I still love camping but unfortunately, my wife needs space and likes those creature comforts so I'll probably never have one.

You'll enjoy it. Have a great time and happy travels.

Thanks Frank, I've had a couple of these before, being able to use the truck when the camper isn't needed made a little more financial sense than the expense of a motorhome.
Then there's the expense of a motorhome. LOL Of course if you add up the cost of a truck & a camper, you can get in to a lot of motorhomes.

Great.........Did you sell the old dodge ?

I like the old simple diesels & I'm about ready to bring another one up from down south.

My 2001 dodge has been thru the last 3 winters here in Ohio (brought it up from Florida) & it's about time for another one.

Time to sell it while it still looks decent & look for another southern truck.

I bought my current one from my brother's neighbor in Cape Coral. I like to find clean private owner trucks where I know their history, rather than doing a crap shoot by buying from a dealer.

I love Dynamax coaches, I've never driven a super C, but think I would be more comfortable in one than a class A, there isn't much protection in the front of an A and I just like driving a truck type cab since it's more familiar.
