Thumbs up

Not really...you caught the misrepresentation with it listed as a turbo diesel when actually a 5.7 hemi. One of the pitfalls of online browsing.

Good Luck

Bob

yep, indeed!! stuff starts to run together after looking for hours and hours

So went to Carmax - 2 of the ones I was looking at were sold...I was really debating gas vs. diesel hard in talking with folks on this site, in talking with my dad, and others...I really was tempted to go for the white 5.7L hemi, but the gold diesel at a slightly lower price tag was very tempting for me.

The gasser was already bought, lol....which made my decision easier.

It is now in process of transfer...ill test drive it in 1-2 weeks or so when it gets here and finalize the paperwork:

2010 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT in Milwaukee, WI- 9233658 at carmax.com

for $1400 I will likely buy the "maxcare" which will cover me for the next 6 years leaving me with the maintenance costs which is not a problem for my budget. Went and test drove another one of these on the lot today....what a machine

Interest rate ended up 1.87%...i was floored by that. Im now even more below my budget....yay!

Well, we shall see how it turns out for me in the coming years of ownership....but it ended up being at least up front a comparable cost to similar spec'd gassers (well nearly anyway)...

Tree guy came today, removing a tree in my back yard after july 4th...and just after that my brother (a mason) is pouring me a concrete pad in front of my patio for me at cost (minus paying a couple laborers their hourly rate) of materials as I am selling him my Toyota T100 at a real deal.

Now I got my eye on a few trailers on lots at a few dealers and in July I will be ready to see if i can find a good deal

The Carmax link is not working now that you are transferring it to you. Post pictures when you get it. I'm certain you will be very happy with your decision. This is a great tow vehicle.

And more subjective, but a very positive outcome of this purchase...is that I get the strong endorsement from my 2 older brothers....whenever I buy something they do not approve of, I get to hear about it for...well...you never stop hearing about it

So- are you committed to the purchase of the gold Ram? 3/4 ton diesel? You will never be overloaded and can get 13 mpg at highway speeds.
You will have a trailer by July 4th!

Nah - not quite by July 4th - perhaps by end of July but definitely have something squared away by August

Would buy now but still unsure about bunkhouse vs sofa 30' flying cloud - we are really conflicted about this

Bunk house looks really nice for kids. Your on one end and the kids are at the other. Beds are always made. That's a big plus.

Take your kids when you go look. They will make up your mind for you.

The baby is only about 6 months old, right? The older one will run straight for the top bunk!

I wanted a black truck, but settled for silver. Now I'm glad I did. Silver looks better with the 'Stream. Color is more important with SOBs. You don't want to tow a white trailer with blue and gray swoopy graphics with a red truck...

Think abut where you'll be spending more time.

For us, the bunkhouse was just too dark and cramped. I love sitting on the sofa, with the big expanse of windows, reading a book. Making the bed takes five minutes a day, max, and pays you back with light and space galore.
