I like 'um both

That nice YELLOW boat on top with cute little boler in back. have you seen the two other pictures with boats on top? one was red, the other was?? ??? maybe silver? something about a boat!! (sigh)

AND next but by no means last. Karen's fog buggy. I really liked ELF, but I know what you mean about Sweet 16, has a certain ring to it. And that picture :reye2 . for the dedicated camper for sure. :laugh. No shoes allowed in the trailer on that trip I'll bet. that's a keeper.

mud and fog

Yes Charles, I KNEW you would like that picture......we also love solitude and just being able to get back away from people and noise. That fog was like a big pillow around us and really muffled even the wildlife sounds.

Don, wooohoooo,, or should I say "yeeeehaaaaa" . Sure looks like she is wanting to go camping and doesn't care what vehicle tows her.

Larry, that is a beautiful rig.....I love the looks of the 5th wheels.

and last, but not least, Jana.;) ELF almost needed to be explained, whereas "Sweet 16" just seems to fit, plus it also fits in with what we mostly do in our Scamp (it refers to a type of shotgun).

ACH, the mud. It comes with the territory I guess. We don't usually find concrete pads in the mountains where we go, so we are used to taking our boots off outside.

Karen

yes, Don!!!

Now that's a tow truck!!!!! is that a lifted F250 or a 350??? V10 I see.....ouch. A Power Stroke would get as much mileage as my 4.0 6 cylinder Ranger. If I end up working back on the road w/tools and such, I am going that route, and pulling the camper. If you do alot of towing though, my opinion is overkill pays off in a tow vehicle bigtime. (Ask Charles Watts or Speed Gray!!!)I consider my truck bare minimum for towing the 16 footer here in the mountains....and I have beefed the suspension and driveline considerably. I don't want to work the vehicle or myself that hard.


nice truck- Phil

I love this picture Don, and I think you should always use this truck. it shows what we love about our TTs. They're small and go with anything. But then I love all the pictures of the TT with they're pulling buddies. such a variety, just like there is with each of us. Thanks all for sharing your photos.

F-350 V-10 4x4 Crew Cab Shortbed. The lift is 2" by way of added leafs. It came this way. The PowerStroke Diesels are many thousands $$$ more. The trade off was 4-way, I didn't have to shell out $3K (that's a lot of gasoline), put up with the noise, stink and special needs of the engine. This is a ranch truck, my tractor is Propane so I didn't need a common fuel truck. The nice thing is it gets 10-11 mpg towing anything, goosenecks, flatbeds, buses... The bad thing is it gets 10-11 mpg empty weight. The Scamp is for the Jeep I'm building.

Funny thing is the truck doesn't even notice the TT. If it weren't for the mirrors, you wouln't know you were towing anything, I have to be careful. :E

Recently I got a bedfull of fill dirt for $4. I mean a heaping bedfull, plus two railroad ties on top. The truck drove like it was empty. It unloaded like it was 3,000 pounds of dirt, one shovelful at a time...:o

Don

Don, man, you've got to pull into some campground towing your 13-footer with the F-350.

When someone asks (and they're bound to ask) how you like towing the Scamp with the F-350 ... saying something like:

"It's ok on the flatlands, but bogs down on the hills."

PS ... I sometimes respond this way when some campground yahoo jokes about my Suburban/Casita combo.

Another line I'll use is:

"Don't let that trailer's looks deceive you. It's just a couple pounds shy of 8,000 pounds."

>>just a couple pound shy of 8,000 pounds.

Well, it is, when you add in the weight of my on-board margarita mix and fixings!
