Love that old Chevy
Are those fifthwheel campers frames rugged enough to tow another trailer with a rig on it? I mean I didn't know they were or is it a special one?

squirriljeep Got a new trailer last week. 32' V-nose. My '08 F250 will definitely benefit from a weight distribution hitch with sway control. If that's not enough I'll get airbags.

MT4Runner I put a 7-speed Spicer ESO66-7B in my old UHaul. Driveability was excellent. Good gear splits, and the synchro made it easy for anyone to drive.

A 10-Speed would be nice to get another "hill gear" in between 2.xx and 1.0 direct.

I usually got 8.1mpg with the n/a IDI loaded at 26k with two rigs. 7.5 at 34k is great.

It does have a turbo. Completely stock for now, but I do plan to turn it up a little. With my rig (heavy, a 96 f-350 crew 460 on 39.5's) and my buddy's Toyota loaded up, I am at 34,000 lbs. It gets about 7.5 mpg, driving it on the floor much of the time. I am fine with that- by comparison, my 2000 F-250 superduty crew gasser (5.4) pulled about the same mileage pulling a fullsize bronco on a steel deck car trailer.
On the flats it will run 68-70, but headwinds and grades will kick it's ass. I hope to find a 6 on 7 speed tranny to go in eventually, which would help a ton. Just kind of hard to pull it apart when it gets the job done, everything is tight, and it doesn't have 100k on it yet!

JKTweak My piece of crap ford made it from Fort Worth Texas to Bakersfield California. I passed that stainless hydrodynamic buggy in Bakersfield on Wed. No issues except for my leaky oil cooler dumping a quart of oil at every hotel it was cold started at. Maintained 70-80.

Since added air bags, removed bars on front bumper and added a light bar to replace round lights.

Crocodile And I am grateful that you posted it up! It isn't perfect, but at a third the price of a worn out tonner, and under 100K for mileage, it will probably outlast me and do everything I need it to! And it gets a lot of questions, comments, and compliments.

I agree. I have a single cab long bed 2wd. I guess we should have the same wheelbase. Fucker works. Getting ready to tow my jeep from Texas to Cali to Washington. I'm fucked! I paid $3000 for this thing.

The one on the trailer is my buddies 89 with a 7.3 powerstroke and a 94 body.

drftmnky I really enjoy the comments and appreciate you all taking the time to voice your opinions, which are hilarious. What all do you drive/tow with?
Here is one of the pieces of "equipment" that I haul. Yes it is on the street. No it doesn't have the stack anymore. Either way thanks for keeping me entertained.
