Congrats on your new streamer! You will have so much fun. We will be living in our 30' Airstream at Pinnacles National Park to volunteer starting Feb. 15. Maybe you can come south from Hollister to camp at Pinnacles. Some great hiking in the Park.

2Tex4Fun - start a Pinnacles thread when you get there. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been thinking of going there and has some questions. And congratulations on the opportunity to get to know our newest National Park!

Pinnacles is only 30 minutes from us... It's a great place to hike, decent rock climbing but sadly the campground in not the greatest... RV's are only allowed in the full hook up areas which are three large circles with no real trees or privacy...
Now the car / tent camping area is really nice with lots of trees and shrubs separating each campsite. When we had our Lance camper we could camp in that area as the viewed us as just the truck, not an RV.

Yea, the Cummins is a nice motor for sure! The sound of a Cummins turbo spooling up sure does make my heart race!

We’ve had two of them in the past. We had a 2000 4x4 short bed, fully loaded with a Banks kit, we regularly saw 18MPG out of it. Sadly the auto tranny kept giving us problems so in 2008 we upgraded to a new one with a 6.7 Cummins...
Now that was a truck! A swear it would pull a house from it's foundation and with the built in exhaust brake it would stop fully loaded on a dime! Oddly the 2008 was a pig on fuel, 10 to 12 MPG at best! (Too much smog crap!)
About a year ago I was just sure we were not using our Dodge, Lance camper and Jeep enough so I sold them all and bought the sexist black Porsche 997 Carrera S a 40-year old could dream of! (Insert mid-life crisis joke here!)
Well within three months I had to borrow my friend’s pick-up three times for silly runs to the dump, home depot and so on… I quickly came to the conclusion that everyone who lives in the country needs a truck so I started looking for something used and inexpensive. I found our current Dodge in sad shape but picked it up for $4000! I still had the aftermarket rims and tires from our 2008, I found a wrecked truck with leather so I swapped all of the interior. It’s still a work in progress, however since we only drive it once a month or so, I’ll put up with the mileage of the V-10.
