I am with you, bought our new Pinnacle and been towing with my 2001 Duramax Dually ever since. Made the tough choice to upgrade now and placed her on Craigslist. She is an amazing truck but the upgrade is financially better now than down the road. Anyone interested...

My 2000 F350 Powerstroke diesel has 251,000 miles and still goes like new. Sometimes I pull the RV with it but mostly it stays hitched to the horse trailer and used several times a week.

2001 Dodge Ram Sport 5.9 Cummins, 130000 kms. Original owner kept it in a heated garage and only drove it in the summer to tow his travel trailer. This truck is like new and still smells new inside.

Behold... my 28yr old K5 w/ 495k on the original 350 and still running pretty darn good I must say. I typically get at least one person stopping by the camp site to talk about it or say its cool to see one again.

Nice rig, I've threatened to pull the TT with my 79' F-250 but the gas mileage would be scary with the lift and tires lol. Maybe I'll do it just for kicks!

Gas mileage is not good to say the least lol. On long hauls we use the Envoy for the mileage and comfort.
