Moosetags, just curious, do you frequently travel with a large family; or perhaps, leave your Airstream at home? It looks like you have a lot of extra room now. Nice rig (and truck)!

That difference is probably because there's a generation difference between the trucks.

You could pull your Airstream with that on the truck. Congradulations on the new addition.

Nice set-up. I admire it. When I had the 3/4 ton, i thought of doing that; but...
You have mentioned Ricky; could that be a canoe, kayak or Portaboat??

Today we hooked Lucy up to Fred and Ethel, and headed out on our Moosing adventure.

We departed Denver and headed north into Wyoming. We have stopped for the night in Casper on our way to Buffalo, Wyoming. We will make our base camp with Lucy in Buffalo. From there we will head out into the Bighorn National Forest in search of Mooses. We will now be able to spend the night deep in the Forest and have all of the comforts that we have become accustomed to in Lucy.

Fred did very well on the 300 mile trip up here today. This was his first time towing Lucy with Ethel on board. Fred handled very well on the highway even in some severe cross winds. I'm still getting a feel for this combination, but I am very pleased so far. Fred got 11.3 mpg on today's run which is not too bad for a brand new truck with this kind of load.

Here is a group picture of Lucy, Fred, and Ethel as they prepared to leave the campground this morning.

Moosetags uses the AS as a base camp while he travels into the outback with the truck camper. I hope this is correct? jim

Here's my Hallmark at St Verain State Park in May of this year. It's my understanding that the people at Hallmark and Outfitter are related and agreed to disagree at some point in time. So far, I've used this truck/camper when I've pulled a speedster back to Lincoln NB for a meet and when I head over to La Veta and Lathrop State Park with my pontoon boat next week. Yet to pull the AS with this rig even though the GVWR is in the ballpark with a 25' Safari.

For the record, the Hallmark is one of the very few major purchases (including the AS) in the past 10 years that exceeded my expectations as far as quality and value go. Interestingly enough, our very first RV was a Scamper pop top camper on a 1985 Ford F-250 4x4 diesel long bed extra cab. Looking back, we used that rig more than any other RV we've owned since!

I believe this is correct, this is what I understood he was doing.

A perfect set-up, the best of both worlds.

Did ya check the turning radius ??? I ran into problems with my flatbed when I added an aluminum box on the tongue. You added length to the truck bed. So be careful in a jackknife situation. I wasnt so fortunate. I knocked out one taillite before realizing I had turning problem. I had to add length to the drawbar/ballmount in order to turn. As soon as I can find an extention I am going to at to the Drawbar/ball mount for the Airstream also as I cannot open the tailgate without un-hitching.
Opps almost forgot"NICE LOOKING OUTFIT"

That is correct. Lucy (the Airstream) will be our base camp. We will use Fred and Ethel (the truck and truck camper) to venture out into the back country and be able to stay overnight.

That's a nice looking Hallmark, Denis. We also shopped the Hallmark, and were impressed with its quality. We decided on the Outfitter mainly because of the north/south sleeping arrangement. We found the Outfitter to be of similar quality. Both Hallmark and Outfitter are at the top end of the pop-up truck campers.

I believe that Bill Ward of Hallmark and Bob Ward of Outfitter are brothers, and that they were both raised in their father's truck camper company. I'm not really sure of the reasons that they went their separate ways.

So far, the Airstream seems to pull very well with the truck/truck camper combination.

Brian
