Adding our personal touch to The Black Buffalo

We wanted to add some stickers for our business, but we were told that DOT might hassle us for it even though this truck is registered as a motor home. So we decided to add some flare to the Black Buffalo that wouldn't look too much like a business truck. This is what we came up with. (and yes we also make stickers, banners, and t-shirts if you need something custom done up).

Anticipation is building for new camper

We finally got the title for the Black Buffalo and with that it will get state inspection tomorrow and today it got new tires.

I did some work while they installed the tires. Found out the steering wheel makes a great desk for my laptop. LOL!!

We are scheduled to pick up the new 5th wheel on Monday, and we leave for Conneticut on Tuesday. ACK!! Not a lot of time to unload old trail and load up new one. I did manage to sell the motorcycle to pay for the down payment on the new Toy Hauler which was good. My ankle is still broken so I am not much help with the move which is highly annoying to me and Shelli.

Maiden run of the Black Buffalo

We had a job to do in Jackson, TN and this was the maiden run of the Black Buffalo. Getting our old trailer hitched up the first time took a little thinking and couple of extra parts. But it towed great. The brake controller doesn't work the way I want but they are cheap enough to replace.

We had a brake seize up on the way there and had to the truck to the service center. They had it for nearly a week while we did the job,but did get it fixed $925 later. Ugh. Joys of buying a used truck.

The camper had a flat after sitting a week but the truck was previously owned by a race team and it has on board air so we were able to fill it up and hit the road.

The kids really like the extra room and the comfy seats. It's noisier going down the road then the Black Sheep was but it's easy to drive and more comfortable for everyone.  So far we are liking it.
