Hi T,
Welcome to the forums... good choice on a tow vehicle!

Let us know more about the thought process leading to the Toy Hauler. I just went from a tow behind to a Class B+/C and so far have been happy with the decision. Not that we won't be doing something different in 10 years.

Welcome TJ, Great Truck, They didn't have one around when I got my 3500, I changed from my Truck Camper to a Class A, then to a few Toy Haulers, I still have the Truck Camper to use in the Winter, but in the summer months, Its nice to have all that room for my Dogs, ATV, and the Wife.....Room for me to hide...LOL

There is several reasons I changed my directions on RVing. My 2000f350 had served me well for 16 years as my ranch truck. Also my class A pace arrow was also vintage 1999 and had served me well for 17 years, but was time to update both. I'm near retirement and wanted a diesel. This seems like the most dollars smart way to update both. And the truck is a partial write off. I could also sell the Jeep Unlimted to recapture some cash,but not yet.
Also I towed either my Jeep Rubicon or my Harley for sightseeing at destinations and recreation. But not both.
With my new Toyhauler I will haul my HD and a Yamaha SxS and have pickup for shuttle service at destination. Sometimes with weather changes the HD was not ideal alone. We will give this combination a try.
The F450 pulls the rig great.
