Hello from Sparta Michigan

Just picked up my first diesel truck a couple of weeks ago and so far love it.
The van we had just wasn't cutting it towing our camper. (and its not even that big)
Started shopping around and found this guy.
2007 F350 with the 6.0. Overkill for the current camper but makes it nice when we want to upgrade.
Been lurking for a bit and thought I would say hi.

Glad to have you - to the ORG!!

Sorry, but my first reaction to seeing the pic was, "I wonder if he has enough truck for the trailer." It should definitely handle that one!

Good looking truck!!!

Nice truck and camper.

I had the same reaction when I saw the PSD hooked to the small camper. Definitely no problems pulling it.

We kind of went backwards on what to get first when we decided to buy the camper. We bought the camper sized to our last tow vehicle. Then we bought a new tow vehicle. If it were the other way around the camper would be much bigger.
That's ok though. Just means I can shop for a new camper in the spring.

Hey, that's ok. I would much rather have too much tow vehicle than a heavy camper and a truck that has to work really hard to pull it.

LOL Yup get a bigger camper...
