New TV for German Shepherd Guy.

We have been using our 2018 26RBPR for business, Dog Shows, and pulling it around with a 1 ton GMC duelly Box truck. Which when we use it for pleasure is a bit of overkill. So when we would take a week-end off we used (still do as of this moment) a 1/2 ton Chevy Suburban 2004. I put heavy tires on it (E rated) but really just use it stock. We live in the mountains and it has done amazingly well. But after being on this list I have worried that I have been operating at the edge of my 1/2 tons capabilities. To that end I have been looking for some time for a 3/4 ton Suburban, which is kind of a rare animal around here. I did not want a pick-up. Well this week I found one, and not too far away, in Durango Colorado. It is a 2012 LT with every bell and whistle Chevy could put in a Suburban, which is to say a lot. Factory set to tow with the taller rear end, integrated tow controller, and an after market Cognito Leveling Kit. This truck is nice and uses the same 6.0 that the box truck uses. We decided as it seems it will be sometime before Dog Show World returns to normal that we would like to start using the TT for more recreational purposes. The 1/2 ton did GREAT but I constantly babied it and never drove it faster than 55. Of course in the mountains I could seldom get it going 55. The new truck looks brand new and the owners kept meticulous records. We are looking forward to getting out more and have a week long trip planned to New Mexico middle of October. To say we are excited is an understatement.

Congrats on the new TV! You've still got some time to put it through its paces on some fun trips before winter sets in. Maybe by spring the world can start to return to normal.
