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

Taking it to town this a.m. for a car wash. Taken in our driveway. Remember the egg is really for behind our Jeep. :o

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.

nice truck- Phil
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!

"Eight Thousand Pounds. Yes. Eight Thousand Pounds. It keeps the truck from flying off into orbit when I press on the gas pedal. Last time it came back down out in the desert, good thing I had four wheel drive to get home again..."

Anchor

Don, that's it! You could rename your Scamp "The Anchor."

Yup, works for me.

Hi Glen!

Hi Glen!

I'm guessing you tow with the first one ... the cute little blue car because it matches your pin-striping. The gold and red tow vehicles clash.:)

Bingo !!!!

Chuck got it in one ! ':wave'

Why yes we do tow with that cute little supercharged hot rod ! ';)'

And Yes Chuck was right again....Because its blue matches the Casita.

Yeah right

Yeah right.

Note to all who don't know ... Glen also sells life-sized replicas of the Brooklyn and London bridges ... if you believe he tows with that little bitty car!

He tows with the fire-engine red Tahoe ... a retired fire captain's truck, no less.

But he enjoys toying with pix of little cars (or snappy golden ones) pretending to be hooked up to his trailer.
