Now thats what I call a tow rig and a very nice camper to go with it. Who needs a camper you could just sleep in your rig.

yea i built the truck a few years ago, its undergoing some transformation right now as she was too heavy when i am pinned up. I built the truck to haul the fiver and also to haul around my mobile welder and air compressor so its a little heavy duty, sleeper is for my two german shepherds and supplies and what not.

I was/am very close to doing a big truck tow vehicle, built one for my buddy last year with a smart car deck, he hauls a Mobile Suites with the Volvo I did for him. Just hate big trucks and driving them, work on em all week dont wanna drive em all weekend. Last week i did a f 65o dually conversion, that looked pretty good, but those trucks have no power compared to the cummins and powersrokes avail in the duallys. Go figure. But do have air brakes and lots of braking power.

Wow, your buddy does have a nice, big truck. Now he needs a bigger 5er to balance things out!

I'm sure they will have something to say. They aren't timid.

Nice rig however. I just can't imagine backing that sucker into some of the sites at the campground I am in now.

I say the same thing regarding a big truck, I have a hard enough time with my rig and the overall length. But to each their own as they say.
