All ready have a trip planned to Denton, Texas this weekend. Pulling my very first pop up camper there to donate it to a military wife whose husband is in Afghanistan. She had purchased a 1983 Coleman Columbia (which is what I have) and needed some extra parts. Mine, having barely/not survived a major hail storm 2 years ago, seemed like the perfect camper for her to have for parts. Wasn't likely I was ever going to rebuild it so off it goes to serve another family for a few more years!!!

Impressive, Beerlifter. Somewhere, somebody is smiling right now thanks to your generosity.

Congrats on the new RED truck. You are just as dangerous as us when we go for a drive? LOL

Thank you for your donation to a military family. I am sure they will really enjoy your generosity.

Well to make a long story short......the Big Red Truck in no more. We were headed to Keystone Lake and a younger couple thought there Toyota Tercel need a closer look at the front end of our truck:



Insurance totalled it out. Frame was bent and the cab was pushed over an inch and a half.

Good news is got another new truck this last Saturday. Not as nice as the Red one but will serve its purpose. It's missing the gearing and posi that the red one had but still pulls the Jayco all right. Will try to get some pictures of the new one up soon.

That is a sad ending.

Sorry the new truck isn't as nice as the one in the picture but glad it still does what you need.
