Well, I'm now off for three days. My father in law bought a 24' 5th wheel to pull behind his 09 Ram 1500. We're probably gonna take a look at it tomorrow. Says he paid $9000, for a 15 year old unit. From a dealer, no less. Oh, and they must have seen him coming, because they sold him the 5th wheel hitch installed for $1400. I feel bad for him, but he has to make his own decisions.

I was farting around on craigslist last night, and found a 12 year old 24' 5er for $5000. A little more looking found a 96 supercab dually, 460 auto, low kms, with the 5th wheel hitch included, for another $5000.

Definitely a more capable truck, newer trailer, lower price. Wouldn't it chap his *** if I pulled the trigger on a deal like that.

We all know duallies of that vintage didn't come 4x4. I'd really like a 4x4, and a crew cab, so to have the dually, I'd have to convert a 4x4 to a dually, or a dually into a 4x4. What would be easier?

Holy crap, I'm rambling tonight. It's probably my longest post on the internet since my daughter was born. That's okay though, she's sleeping in my arms right now.

What else happened today...

Wife took me out to the Keg for dinner tonight.

Happy May, BC!

Hey everybody, kinda quiet in here for May. Must be nice outside or something. Everyone can't be watching hockey, the nucks play tomorrow.

Joe, I think you would be better off getting the package, and then selling the dually seperately and just getting a little bit of a newer sd to pull the trailer. I don't think it would be worth the dually conversion, unless you had a good handle on all the pcs needed and time to do it on your own.

It is also nice when the kids fall asleep in your hands. Kinda helps us feel all daddy like and seem like we are doing are part with the we little ones. Enjoy it, because they seem to get to big too fast and want to sit all by themselves in short order.

Well, we went over and checked out the new rv. Really nice setup they've got. Sleeps 6, it is actually newer than he first said. 12 years, rather than 15. Air conditioned, fair sized bathroom, newer awning... I got the impression that we are free to use it whenever, provided we use our own tow vehicle.

It does set a starting point for what we should be looking at though. I'd like a bit different floor plan myself. They've got a kitchen at the back, I'd like a bed and bathroom at the back with the kitchen about the middle. That would put the unit at about a 27' though, and I'm getting way ahead of myself. Wishful thinking for sure.

So when do you start looking for a new tow vehicle?

you'd better put a 4.0 or 4.9 in it.

That configuration may be hard to find if you are thinking 5th wheel. We got ours a couple years ago and paid 8500 for it. It's 30' with the large slide (dinette and couch). We would have liked to have the rear living area with the chairs and the big back window but we couldn't pass up the deal we got on this one. Mind you I did need to buy another truck to pull it.
