Just got the flatbed on last month. 98 1-ton, 454 Vortec, auto, leather interior. Sold off the 03 CTD and bought this. Put a wad of cash in my pocket, got rid of truck payment and could still afford a 1-ton. Maintenance is much cheaper now too.

We hauled 5 trial rigs to a race in Denmark this weekend.
The double decker trailer sure does turn some heads

Nice set ups there. That double decker trailer sure looks like a Witteveen - Raalte trailer if i'm not mistaken. I picked one up from a guy that moved here from Holland a few years ago. Sweet trailers.

Bought the 2014 Dodge last June but couldn't keep the CELs cleared, so it got replaced with a 2015 Ford.

Nice looking truck! 5.0L or Ecoboost? Interested in hearing your thoughts after towing with it compared to your Cummins.

Here's the inside

New ride. Me and the old lady have been planning on getting a toy hauler either this winter when prices are down or early next year. The half ton just didn't have the capacity for what we are looking at getting. Taking it up to the hills this weekend to break it in proper and get its first scratches.

2015, Big Horn edition.

Of course, it's a Ram, so it gets 95MPG, has 2300hp and runs on distilled Monster energy drink.

Picked up the new trailer. Got a hell of a deal on it. Time to get the wedge cleaned up and sold.

I have the same 25gn, 30' with megaramps. Thank Christ for the 2 speed landing gear, but it's sure a lot of cranking to unload my 450. I think I should have went with the 32' to get the torque tube, it's pretty flexy.

Nice trailer though!

Thank you, I am really liking this one. I needed something allot more versatile than the wedge. The torque tube definitely makes allot of difference.
