Don't worry, they built lots of trucks you will find the right one and jump on it I am sure.

I have a 04 Dodge ram 1500 quadcab 4x4 and absolutely love the truck, I bought mine new so I know it hasn't been abused. I have the complete factory tow package including the tow haul mode......I think I am going to need it to pull my first brand new travel trailer. I have towing experiece so that isn't a problem. I willbe picking it up on Sat and will be buying a WDH and brake controller. Anyone recommend what controller to get?

Sorry you missed out on it but like Clutch said, they made lots of trucks so just wait a while and you'll find another. My favorite saying is you gotta make hay when the sun shines. Just make sure your baler and tractor are ready!

Hey Everyone,

Thanks again for all your input on this subject, Clutch was right and we found it this past weekend.

We picked up a 2006 Ford Expedition with 69,000 miles on it and in excellent condition inside and out.

We had a 25+ year Ford Mechanic friend take a look at it (he spent around 3 hours looking over lots of stuff on it) and deemed it to be be worth the asking price, then the dealer took our Envoy for trade and all that came out of my pocket was enough to cover the new 5 year 70,000 additional mile extended warranty for it.

Now we can't wait for our first trip towing over spring break to Mendocino on the Northern California coast.

Thanks again, Ted

Congratulations on the new tow vehicle. It just takes a little patience and the perfect TV for you will show up. With the right equipment towing can be enjoyable.
