You know now you don't have any excuses not to be out there and camping!!!
It is a BRAND NEW Chevrolet Silverado 1500
. Oh my! Another forums faux paux! A 1/2 ton pick-up pulling an Airstream 25 feet long!
It has the 5.3L gas engine with FlexFuel and Automatic Fuel Management with "Coil Over Spark Plug Technology". This means that it can run on E85 and it will shut down 4 cylinders and it has an individual coil for each of the 8 spark plugs.
It has the auto-locking rear differential.
HD towing package, (rated at 7,000 lbs max.)
It has A/C, PL, PW (including the extended cab windows), PM, OnStar, AM/FM CD six speaker, cruise, trans temp, tire pressure, oil life monitoring.
It is dark blue so it should tow better than a red truck, (ask Carol she knows).
I am ordering a fiberglass cap for it on Saturday. I have already ordered a new WD hitch for it as the old one has a welded shank and will not work on the truck.
Tube steps and a bug sheild with chromy-go-fast mirror covers are after all that!
