Here's Bessie!

Bessie is our tow vehicle. We don't have our trailer yet, but it will probably be a 2015 Classic 30.

We have a Class 6 Air hitch from Air Safe that will help to protect our trailer from too much bounce.

Holy Cow! That's quite the tow vehicle, there! Are you going to paint her like the Tardis?

I NEED THAT TO TOW MY BAMBI! Unfortunately it doesn't look like it has adequate payload capability available.

More information please.

I love it. What is it? How much cha-ching? Gas mileage? HOLY COW! Seriously.

I seriously like this tow vehicle. As a fulltimer I don't have a house with a garage to store tools, etc. in. The utility body is a great idea.

I'm taking your pictures down to my local truck dealer to price one.

I will have to get a Fiat or other belly-button car as a daily driver. (Looks like one might fit IN the back of this truck!)

Why such an extreme tow vehicle?
You will never be overloaded...
You won't need weight distribution or anti-sway- just set it on the ball and go.

We are going to fulltime. We are not completely retiring when we get on the road. Hub is a 30+ year ASE master technician and plans to get certified as an RV technician. His toolbox weighs over 2000 lbs. Plus, we bought our last truck first.

We got into this truck for less than 100k just to let you somewhat know, the kitchen sink is in the last box on the passenger side. If you extend the wheel base you can put a small car on the back. With a 55 degree turning base I can almost turn the whole thing aroung on a 2 lane street.It also has 2 bedrooms just to add that. Think I am getting about 12 MPG but still working on that. Just a few highlights to let you know.

Maybe we'll run into y'all at some campground when we need a repair. Up to now, it 's been me and a growing list for Jackson Center...
