I'm a bit less "conservative" on that front. Carpe Diem! Can't take it with you! Spend it up and live your life to the fullest!! You only get one go 'round!

Edit: And I believe that was post #2001 for me! Woooohoooo!!
Yes, we just upgraded the TV to the Ram in my signature back in December. Now that we've camped a few times, the wife has seen that towing is a breeze for the new truck...Its a breeze for her, as she sits in the passenger seat and surfs the web on her phone! Seriously, the new TV is great tho, I went from white knuckles with wife's SUV...to forgetting the trailer is even behind us at times! I'll let you know how it turns out...now that the in-laws have been coming with us lately, I should be abl to charge them rental fees to off set the cost...lol!

Same with my new truck, LOVE it. No way DW is ready for an upgrade to the TT though. Her "drive" is easy like your DW's, but that's all about to change, she's going to towing school this weekend!

Good luck with that. Mine sits in the passenger seat "White Knuckled". She gets panic attacks when we tow.

Thanks! I'm going to need it! I don't think she's ready to actually tow yet, I'm just going to try to get her feet wet for the short drive to or from the storage yard. Only about 5 turns, no major highways, and no backing. Baby steps...

This trip involves a new variable that I'm not comfortable with yet. We're going to strap on our canoe. I haven't done this in years, so we'll see how it goes. I got the rigging and clamps for the rack yesterday, will get the rack some time this week. She swears she's going to need sedatives, she leaves claw marks in her hand-holds in the passenger seat as it is!

Well, it was not meant to be! They had two 355MBQS's on the lot, but the one with the darker color scheme my wife liked was SOLD...she did not like the lighter color scheme. We loved the floor plan and the dealer was more than willing to order us a new unit with the colors we wanted....but of 'course that would increase the price!! We left and are very happy with our current Jayco! Thank you for all that responded to this thread and the thread I posted about 5th wheel hitches.
