    Hello all. Laundromat day, there bright and early just after 7 AM. Couldn't sleep either. The good news is that I'm getting a lot of studying/reading done, I suppose.

    Hey. I hit the gym early this morning to pump myself, and I just pedaled the spin bike for 75 minutes. You heard.

    Was reading a Reacher book and napping all day. Sunburn on my chest and gut. Itchy.

    Those books aren't bad.

    I hate it when a project turns out to be way more work than anticipated. One thing I found out is that there is a lot of surface area for killing bugs on my camper. It took 3 hours just to scrub all the splats of the front end of the camper and the truck and a total of 5 hours to get the damn thing washed and waxed. I might do it again next year after I forget what a pain in the arse it was.

    looks good though

    You sure you're under your rear axle gross weight limit with that camper on a single rear wheel truck, Eric?

    Looks like a F350 SRW; he should be fine.
    DRW would be more stable on the twisties and on windy days.

    10 ply tires rated at 3750#, Rancho 9000xl shocks, airbags, stable loads, and anti-sway bars. It barely leans in the turns or cross winds. Been using this set up for over 3 years aand have been through the Rockies, SW deserts and the Sierras on both pavement and dirt with no issues.

    Don't doubt it for a second.
    My brother pulled his 3rd wheel horse rig all over the rockies/plains with his 250 srw with a similar set-up.
    When the engine popped he picked up a 7.3 DRW and was even happier.
