new "family" toy
Aug 30th, 2014 at 9:28pm
 
I am call this a new "family" toy because my dad said if we need to use it we could just like the travel trailer.  He actually got this, after listening to me for once, to pull the travel trailer. 

so here is what it is.  he got a 2012 Ram 3500 Crew Cab dually 4X4 slt with the Cummins diesel.  it is pretty loaded with the uconnect blue tooth radio with alpine package.  I will get more pictures of it later but I did get to drive it all day as we went looking for steps for the truck as it needs it.  it is tall.

I am slipping! I did not even catch it. 

My wife, kids and I get to be the first to use the new truck to pull the travel trailer.  We are going camping 9-19 to 9-21.  The funny part is that when we were talking about were to go the wife and kids wanted to go camping in waco so that is were we are going. Grin

I talked my dad in the dually because there should be no sway with it like we had with the f250.
