Anyway, we were in Rapid City, SD, getting ready to head east, and the truck went into a reduced power mode, almost wouldn't move. We were able to get the trailer relocated to a different campground and into the Chevy dealer. They had the turbo overnighted from Denver, started working on it Wednesday afternoon, and we got it back Friday afternoon, almost $3,300 lighter in the wallet.

Nice truck! Welcome to the wonderful world of Megacab ownership. Who needs a travel trailer when you got a cab that big, right?

Yeah, got them weighed and the truck weighs more than the trailer!

So Chevy pulls the cab, too. Ford isnít alone.

Curious. How often do you use the engine brake?

Boy, that's one big triple axle toy hauler for an F250. 18,000 lbs GVWR on the trailer and a 19 000 lb GCWR on the truck. Have you been to the scales yet?
