Just wondering if you may have took the wrong exit and some how ended up at the Ram dealer. LOL

Ha. Can't say as I counted but I drove home to NC from Philadelphia Monday and noticed just how few RV's of all types I saw. Usually there are Dime a dozen. Saw 5 the whole way home.

Last week we drove down I-65 south to go to granddaughters basketball game. On the way home we probably saw a 100 RV's from multiple manufacturers. There really pouring out of northern Indiana now. Lot's of them were being pulled by Dodge duallys.

More Chevys pulling fishing size boats with 1/2 ton.
Freightliner is number one in big trucks (Dalimer Chrysler now owned by fiat) international second and Volvo third and kenworth and peterbuilt in the rear. Big heavy duty dominated by Mac. Not scientific but what we observed.
The Mexicans tow "Jap Crap" to Mexico because they know they last forever and never ever break down since they have no way of getting parts or repairing them. Kind of like Cuba with the 50's and 60's cars. I've had two Toyotas and never had even one issue. Well, except the throttle stuck and the tires all blew out on my last Springdale TT once I exceeded 100mph. Still waiting on the recall...

Regarding head count.....ever notice how many sparrows there are in your back yard, and how few bald eagles you see in the yard?
Just asking......

I think it's part of the Austin weirdness. You might not understand, but Ustabslim knows what I'm talking about.

I am awaiting the build of my Ram 2500.

I think it has 2 factors. 1 - what manufacturers are local, people buy what is close. 2 - who is giving the best deals.

I think more buy for the best deal than they do for the specific truck. Where I live there is a Ford and Toyota dealer, that is what you see the most. Where I work every month is Ford and Ram. That is what I see a mix of.

Then again, I bought my truck because I grew up with a Dodge and Chevy local and fell in love with the Ram. This definitely factored into my decision. I looked at all the big 3 and felt Ram was the best for me in a HD truck.

That's what I was thinking.

You can't just leave us non Texans hanging like that. Is this what you are talking about?
