New member story

Hi everyone,

I'm from Georgia and my wife and I have been camping since around 2004 and have had a lot of wonderful experiences. Several years ago we traveled out west and had an experience of a life time but when we got home I purchased a Keystone Cougar. I was pulling it with a 2005 2500 silverado with a 6.0 gas engine. Several times traveling up brutal Hwy 441 I had some issues with my transmission so I recently purchased a 2008 2500 Silverado duramax Diesel and I love it. Now I feel safer traveling back out west pulling the Cougar. We both love camping and love to talk about it.

I think a diesel truck is the way to go. Congrats and welcome!

Nice having you among the group. Likewise, a fellow Cougar owner here, but Cummins powered.

All diesels are great, I'd be happy with any of them.
