David, Where are the trout in Tenn. ? I am new to trout fishing and have only fished Wyomong, Montanna and Oklahoma so far. Oklahoma has a beautiful park with rainbow trout about 4 hours from me. I really like going there because the deer, raccoons, beaver and bald eagles are entertaining.
It's just me, no family, so I think the extended cab provides enough in cab storage of gear and allows for reclining seats for rest stops.
I think you are right when considering a back seat. I have considered that a crew cab might be good for passengers if I decide to try guiding when I relocate. The back seat of the extended cab is only storage behind the seat and similar to a regular cab. I relly don't like large vehicles and thought an extended cab truck with short bed would be the smaller unit. Since I have discarded the Landrover idea, I have started considering the practicality of a truck bed over an SUV for moving and hauling stuff.
John mentioned the Calif RV dealer. I looked at the link and the guy suggest not using beefed uo suspensions for Airstreams. I am converned because I was considering a 4X4 with 4 inch lift. Though the new Dodge 1500
4X4 I test drove felt soft the Ford F-250 felt stiff.
Thanks your thoughts. I feel I should apply as much attention to equipment selection as I would to a pre flight check.
