That's a beast. For sure unlike a lot of folks that's drawn to a fluff and puff camper rig first, getting the right truck should be the first thing when planning for long term future rving.

My SWMBO [She Who Must Be Obeyed] bride has always told me to buy what I want as long as its not a DRW . She likes to drive "her" truck as a daily drive.

But she says that since she does not have a broad butt like those DRW trucks have, and requires a wider chair, she refuses to deal with wider parking spaces. That's our story and I am sticking to it. Tell us about your targeted rig.

As a side note, sun roofs, moon roofs or whatever folks call the substitute for the metal rooftop, I have no use for them, never opened a single one that came on any of our passenger vehicles, thats standard if you get any upgraded features on one.

It's a 2022 GMC Sierra Denali Ultimate it's a use but in mint condition, this is loaded with everything I wanted, well I didn't care for the sunroof but it's okay.
Wow, nice truck, have fun with her!

Nothing like a new truck, especially if it's slightly broken in on someone else's dime.

We have a moon roof in our Terrain and I always wanted one. We found out that we hardly ever use it?

Nice truck. I hope you enjoy it. I had a 2015 GMC Denali dually and it was a very good truck. I traded it for a 2017 Ford F350 KR dually and it was also good. Now you can get a ginormous fifth wheel if you so desire.

Thank you sir, I'm not a fan of sunroof either but it came with it so yeah, it is what it is and I mostly don't open them either, the rig that we are planning on getting down the road is a Grand Design 380FL or the Jayco NP FL I forget the numbers on that one but it's all front living.

We like that rear kitchen also and the front bath but mainly the front living.

Thank you guys for all of your comments the plan is to get a front living 5th wheel like the GD 380FL or the North Point 387FBTS or a FK, which will take us in the 40"+ size but not sure yet because it's down the road but at least we will have the truck to pull it with. I took my hard cover off of my other one and put it on the new one. Took out my safe also and put it in this one but I didn't take the pics of that, I have a few more things to installed on it, like my dash cam.

Looks sweet Big 1, I hope you enjoy it. We love our NP 382flrb. I saw a gmc dually yesterday with the black fender moldings painted white and it looked really sharp, first dually Id seen with them painted. I had my marker lights tinted above the wheels and they look much better. Also watch your tailgate as it will hit your hitch unless you get the b&w that is made for the gm trucks.

That is a nice-looking truck I hadn't been a fan of white truck but it's growing on me, we really love the FL 5th wheel and are planning on getting one next. Look at the third pic I have the B&W hitch with the Muti-Pro tailgate friendly.

Took my truck to church today for the first time and everyone loved it, I can almost say that this truck I will probably keep this for a while, lol.

Now I see that you have the chrome wheel I was thinking on going with the Fuel Marvick wheel to offset all the white. I have seen those dually that have the painted bumper I saw one in black and man that thing was nice.

So what did you did to tint the lights on your fender? Man I love that white truck it look nice.

Hey guys I think that I am going to like this setup, I was out today setting up my setup, and even though I didn't go anywhere but I have to take in our 5th wheel in to the dealer next week so they can order a part. These are some of the pics that I took when I was out of storage.

After I hooked it up it only sagged 1", I also measured the gap between the bottom of the 5th wheel to the rail and at the front, it was 7" 1/2 but toward the tailgate it was 6", but the ground was uneven so when I get on flat ground I will measure it again.

Thank you Ringneks, I can't wait to take it to the dealership next Tuesday and although it will be a short drive I will be able to see how this tow compares to the other SRW.

Looking good Big1! I see you are at Valley RV SuperCenter in my neck of the woods. Bought our 195RB from them and still wander through the little store by the parts dept from time to time for misc repair parts even though we moved on to SOB....
