Great thread. Couple of questions if I may.

What are the black pop outs in your back windows?

Is there different rates per mile with different companies?

I was just talking to a friend of a friend who is doing what you are doing, and he has well over a million miles on his 07 dodge, and not planning on stopping soon.

Just a confirmation regarding towing the larger trailers, cant agree more. We have a Pinacle just like the one you had towed, love it to pieces. Tows like a dream.

Is there different rates per mile with different companies? Yup, and for us we receive diff rates fro diff dealerships.

For the member that inquired on the black pop outs on my rear windows see pics below. I'm honestly surprised no one else has commented on them lol! Not a common TV accessory. Pics show my bed not made so my apologies for that.....this set up gives you a sleeping area of approx. 24 x 24 x 75 which in SOME jurisdictions qualifies as a legal sleeper.

And here we always assumed the delivery guys slept in the new trailer beds! That setup gives a new meaning to the word mancave.

Just curious, but what do you do for heat on those brutally cold northern nights when sleeping, keep the engine running, or just use an extreme sleeping bag?

Truck is clean in those pics. You should see it after 14 days on the road!
1600 watt generator and a 750 watt space heater. It does a decent job of keeping the interior quite warm. There was a few nights last winter that I woke up part way through the night and fired the truck up as well. SUmmer time I have a 12v fan and crack the window. Like I've said it's not a glorious lifestyle.

I completely understand about the non glamorous lifestyle. Heck, my boat has NO beds, heat, fans or AC.

Thank you for the pics! What are the popouts made out of?

Does the generator use that much less fuel than the truck to keep you warm? How much fuel would your truck use to idle?

WIndow inserts were commercially made by a now defunct company. Some kind of plastic / or something, not sure the exact material. I can run my generator for 8-9 hours for approx. $4.00. The Cummins does not appreciate sitting and idling for extended periods of time and I can only guess it would cost more than $4.00 to run it all night.
