    To me (and definitely my dogs) the ability to pass thru is way more important than any noise considerations on a rental that might not be there on a different brand. AWD is definitely a thing. And like bikes they are always coming out with new things. look at B+

    If the truck just sits with the camper on it...yeah I'd sell it, now is the time. Replacing it with an RV seems nice. Used RVs are cheap, and while not as nice to drive as a new truck, a bunch of extra $$ is nice to have - Sprinters/vans excluded.

    If I didn't DD my truck, I'd probably buy a much older / cheaper truck.

    Pretty cool build that combined a wide range of yota bits.

    That's sort of the speed I was thinking of regarding Class B. About the same size as my current truck+camper, but seemingly more efficient with the space and not as tall. A pass-through, while not a consideration, would be a nice benefit and you get the use of the two captains chairs, I assume.

    I did DD the truck, but it drives like a big ass, dude-bro diesel truck. It seemed silly to drive unladen. I'm shying away from Class C due to size. A Class B seems like it might be the jam as it's mostly me. Occasionally, it's my brother and I, or a buddy. My wife and I rarely use it together.

    I passed something very similar on my rally bike outside of Dewey Bridge last week. Bitchin', if a bit small.

    Which is why he installed a 3.4-liter 5VZ engine from a 4Runner.

    Having driven a Promaster and now owning a (non-awd) transit, youíre going to love driving it.

    Very nice, we've been talking about an AWD transit in the next few years, depending on a few things. Ecoboost? That's gonna be a sweet rig.

    Yeah, but class b or c, you can take a nap in the back while the wife drives, and she can make lunch while you drive,
    and if Rugrats are involved, they can be more than two feet away from your ears for hours at a time while driving.
    All Big wins in my book.

    How much $$ do you have to put down up front? And what if you bail on it? Just curious.

    No crotch fruit in my household. Just the wife-unit and a rescue pup.

    Ah, yet again TGR delivers with stereotypical misogynistic "humor"(?) This time that women are bad drivers.
    Sorry to those who may have married poorly...?
    Or are most here single because the way many of you discuss women shows a dearth of understanding and respect for them.

    I loved sharing the driving with the Mrs...
    Nice naps, game time with the kiddos, reading, peaceful time in the crapper....

    Yeah, I still do 80% of the driving by choice because she is better at taking care of the kids and feeding me snacks while I drive versus vice versa.

    Why? Am I making a sexist generalization about my wife?

    Given my ways, I eat like shit on the road. Processed foods, bags of crap, ok with some fast food.
    She is a heath food nut, tons of fresh fruit and vegetables. She loves to prepare food, I don't,
    that's the reality of our partnership, not some stereotypical swipe at women in general.

    Nice try though.
