Love the color combo.

I have been waiting for a great, scenic photo opportunity of our setup. Beautiful picture!

GMC 2500HD SLT with the 6.0L gas engine.

I often dream about going diesel, but I don't drive that much (work from home) and most of our trips are < 300 miles so at the time couldn't justify the extra cost of a new diesel. Next time though...

I'm a "next-timer" too. For now the gasser gets the job done and then some, but my next truck will most likely be a diesel one way or another...

Really pretty. Congratulations. I got a photobucket link in my email when you posted this. Clicked on it & saw several more pics. Thought I'd like to go back to that link & take another look. But it would not come up. Really like the color.

Takes all the work out of towing an RV. I also like that I do not have to lift things over a tail gate or bedside. I can haul everything I would even need with me.

Is there enough room/capacity to throw a side by side on that flatbed and tow the trailer at the same time?

Plenty. the bed is 8' x 12' and with an 18,500 max towing capacity, I still have 7000 lbs to play with when the TT is fully loaded.
