Talking My first RAM. My first diesel.

Bought my wife a travel trailer that was supposed to be half-ton towable. 2007 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab 5.3L just wasn't enough truck for it. So after taking it on one camping trip, where the 1/2 ton Chevy didn't pull it well...

...a couple weeks later my wife said, "Honey, let's go look at diesel trucks," I replied "Do we have to?" (Yeah, right! ).

So now we're the proud owners of a new 2017 RAM 2500 Cummins 6.7L Crew Cab long bed Tradesman with almost all the options you can get on the Tradesman trim level.

Pulled the 2017 Wilderness 2475BHS travel trailer like it wasn't there - almost never had to touch the brakes with the the diesel exhaust.

Once I get a high enough post count to be allowed the privilege of posting photos, I'll add a photo of the "wimpy, wimpy, wimpy" truck and the new travel trailer. And then the real important part - the new truck!

Yeah, I'm still at the point of thanking her every day for the truck. Just turned over a whopping 600 miles on the truck today! It hadn't even been test driven when we bought it - just delivered and hiding in the dealer's back lot with a whole 17 miles on it.

My wife's an Alaska girl - she had a 1998 Dodge extended cab (not diesel) when we met in 2001. She was thrilled to get back in a Dodge and especially a Cummins diesel.

"Bought my wife a travel trailer that was supposed to be half-ton towable. 2007 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab 5.3L just wasn't enough truck for it"

Guess the travel trailer sales person negated to mention it was towable downhill only !

Now you can buy your wife a larger travel trailer ! LOL
