We’ve been full time on the road off and on now for nearly 8 years. 6 year ago we bought a brand new camper and towed it with our Chevy van. The van was comfy, but under powered and did not tow well at all. We ended up ruining it trying to climb mountains and we traded it in on a diesel truck. It was tough to find a crew cab that would seat six, and hold all our stuff. We ended up buying a brand new 2012 Dodge Ram 2500. It was a great truck. But after 4 years and 124,000 miles we were outgrowing it and the kids have gotten so big that they were uncomfortable in their seats. We had named the Dodge the Black Sheep, and now it’s time to trade it in on something bigger. We searched for nearly a year, and prayed and searched some more and found a 1997 Freightliner FL60 Cabriolet custom that we liked and could afford. The kids have named it The Black Buffalo since it’s so big. LOL.
This thing has a huge couch in the back that turns into a bed. This gives the kids a lot more room and much more comfortable seating. It can recline in the event they need to rest and we are still driving. It drives good and has a lot of cool little features. Its noisier then the Dodge was, but we like it.
We needed to upgrade to make the kids more comfortable and because we also our upgrading our camper. We needed to be able to haul our scissor lift to jobs so we order a new toy hauler with the weight capabilities for hauling the lift.
Now we just need to add our logos to it. Woohoo!Current weather near us right now:
