I've definitely missed having it on a couple trips, but the new rig has been great too. One of the best things about the trailer was being ale to keep it packed and ready to go at anytime. The truck functions similarly. I've been able to leave an overnight bag, and everything I need to camp in the canopy. The bed is always made and is nearly as easy to access as it was in the trailer. Three different times this summer, I decided to camp wherever I was at the time, even though I hadn't planned to stay out when I left the house. With the trailer, you couldn't be quite as spontaneous. The other thing that was really nice about the trailer was being able to leave it at camp and have the truck free for shuttles or whatever. The Alu-Cab tent is so easy to setup/breakdown. I can still be on the road in less than a minute from the moment I decide to go for a drive.Do you miss it ?
One of my favorite trucks. What engine, love those 460's personally. Once had a 429 ci cobra jet that got 20 mpg on the highway @ 80 mph.
Keep Dixie rolling, my Dixie was a faithful little Boston terrier for 14 years. Your Dixie can be around for a lot longer now that she has a new heart transplant. :<]My truck has a fresh 460, 7.5 liter and gets me about 8 miles per gallon. I definitely agree with the beast thing. For a large truck, I love the versatility.
Looks like your putting it to good use already!
