I'm just glad I have an Excursion to move the load I pull!

Here's me with a relatively full load. I'm hauling 3 pyramids, the statue of liberty, the Sears Tower, and the Eiffel Tower. Normally, I only have 1-2 of these at a time, but it was a special occasion. This isn't a very uncommon load, whenever they need these monuments moved for special occasions, they'll typically call me up. I had a special class 47 hitch attached to my Excursion to be able to haul stuff like this, so I don't recommend doing it on the stock class 4 hitch. Remember, always give yourself sufficient room to stop when hauling extra weight.

That's sitting pretty level; are you using airbags in the rear? I don't see a weight-distributing hitch on the setup.

You probably could use a couple more binder-chains to secure that load, though...

OMG ! This is too funny -- I just saw your truck parked in front of the shop about an 3 hours ago when I was coming down from the Home Depot in the village. I thought to myself 'damn that black X looks sweet' and I was about to double back into the lot to check it out, but my 3 year old was with me and he wanted to get home ASAP ... The truck looks GREAT and I love the GT

We just picked it up this afternoon! It's a 25' Starcraft 2500RKS. We had a popup for 15 years and sold it 16 years ago so we're really looking forward to hitting the road again!

We bought it from Dick Gore's RV World in Savannah, GA and will be towing it home to Lexington, KY on Saturday. It's probably the most expensive vacation souvenir to date . . . . .
