Let's See Your Tow Vehicle, Trailer or Rig

I did a quick search and didn't see any threads on what everyone is using to tow there campers. Let's see what you tow with.

This is my '96 F350 Power Stroke. I've had it for over 12 years and has 202K miles on it.

tjl -
Great idea but you've set the bar way too high for the rest of us!
How can we possibly post any pics of our TV's now that we've seen yours? Can't you delete the two pics and post something a little less intimidating? How about throwing a bit of dirt or sprinkling some dust on your Ford to make it look a bit more "ordinary".
Sorry, but you scared me off.

Almost at a loss for words but how about...."WOW"!

That Ford is super clean! Very nice.

Here is mine with all my other stuff. The Equinox is the newest an 07, everything else is at least 10 years old.

Here it is with my old 5th wheel, which is only 500lbs lighter than my new 32 foot Passport.

Just a plain ole 2002 6.0/4L80E/4.10 truck 325 HP 360 FT/LBS of torque. It has tune and exhaust.
Tows 7500 lbs just fine. I just rolled 29,200 miles

We have two tow vehicles, sort of....

This little hot rod drags our boat with us when we go to any CG that has a lake where we can use said boat:

And, "Yeah, it's got a Hemi!

And the boat ('68 Sea Sprite with a 2007 Merc 50):


Now for the beastie:

Retired the old girl in '04


We miss old "Thunder" But the extra room and twice the HP makes up for the memories.
All that glitters is not gold ..... some of it is chrome and stainless.

Hey Barney, don't feel to bad. We have a 96 850 volvo(over 200,000), 04 volvo xc90 (over 130,000) and 2000 Ford F-450 drw crew cab with over 176,000. We will probably have another volvo in the near future ( go a 16 year old son) can't take any chances with that precious cargo (lol). My husband has worked on volvos for 27 years. I love mine. . We call it his 401 disintegrator ray cause it has the centurion package and the emblem looks just like Marvin the Martian. LOL

It's an extended stay site at Tiki Tom's, on Galveston Bay. We pulled the Outback from the dealer straight to the site a year ago and have not moved it since..., love the site. Sunsets are awesome and the fishing is great.
