One of the nice aspects of driving a huge moho was the driver seat height...I was actually about 6 inches taller than most of the semi's on the road. My 2008 Dodge/Cummins 2500 Crew Cab/Long Bed 4X4 has my seat as the center of a lot of goodies, all designed for driver comfort, information acquisition, and to obtain the highest driver alertness. I have sat in the cab of one of the big trucks at a Kenworth dealer....nice, and with the hi-tech seats, probably more comfortable than my Dodge.

I have mine, a 1995 F250 PowerStroke....

It does a great job of towing our 1987 Avion 34W. I can do most of the work needed to maintain the diesel engine, so those costs are kept to a minimum. I love the smell of diesel, and I love to hear the truck doing what it was designed to do. I like the fuel economy of this truck, compared to a comparable gas-engined truck. I expect this truck/engine to last a long time. Only has 106K miles on it now.

Mine would be a 2015 Ford F150 King Ranch 3.5 Ecoboost 3.15 ELSD that was PAID OFF in Platinum white w caribou trim and loads of options.

My Christmas fund is accessible!

My dream tow vehicle is what ever is doing a good job towing for us at present. At present we have a 2005 F250 V10 super cab long bed 2wd limited slip 4:10 rear end. Got it last year with only 38,000 miles on it. Previous owner keep it garaged and mostly used it to tow. He was happy to sell it for $13,000 and we were happy to buy it. It was about $30,000 to $35,000 less than buying new, that adds up to about 10,000 gallons of gas, that equals about 100,000 miles of towing. After this we will have to start looking for our next dream TV, which may be a television in an old folks home.

I think a lot of Airstreamers have an eye on the new aluminum F150, as well Ram Ecodiesel. They match up well with most mid-size Airstreams if not all Airstreamers.

Wow! That was a great deal on a very nice truck! That V10 engine does a great job, and current gas prices make it even more economical to drive. That's a real workhorse.

Yeah, this Airstreamer's wallet just doesn't match too well. I built one like I liked for $57,330 it's mine! I know, there are discounts but...

So, it made it to this "dream" list.

Yep, we bought a new Ram Hemi in 2012 for much less than half that price and it does a fine job for us while never needing a single repair (yet).
