My new ride.

Just came last Monday. Special ordered F350 Dually with 6.7 liter Diesel. Don't Think I'll have much trouble towing the Aerolite 242 now!

I know right now its overkill (not that I don't mind overkill.) I'd rather have too much power with no worries. Especially pulling up grades.

Eventually we will be upgrading to a fifth wheel. Its already set up with the Goose Hitch.

I think I want one of those too! Need to pull a 25000 pound 5th wheel!

Nice! Had bad experience with Ford before, so i am not really a supporter. But it’s definitely a sweet looking ride!

Congrats and enjoy!
