Just to show a different tow rig

Sometimes we tow with the SUV but my favorite rig is the RV because it means we stay longer and have more fun and relaxation.

Got a new tow rig the other week but didn't get a chance to post a pic because I've been in England for the last 10 days. I got it the other week and had enough time to drive it home and wash it then put it in the garage while I was across the pond. 2016 LML with just 23k miles, it is a LT but does have the heated cloth seats. So far I love it, the camper top came with it, I've never been a huge fan but I do think this one looks decent on the truck. I'll probably leave it on through hunting season then decide whether to take it off for next summer or not. Right now I just can't wait to get the windows tinted and get the boat behind it.

Big thanks to Corbin for taking a Friday evening to go check it out for me. I had a lot going on and wasn't able to get out to St. Louis to check it out so he did it for me. I probably wouldn't have bought it without myself or someone I trust laying eyes on it. Right after he got done test driving it another couple was waiting to do the same so based on his critique of the truck I went ahead and just pulled the trigger over the phone and the dealer had the truck delivered to me a week later after we got all the paperwork and money exchanged. I never thought I'd buy a truck like this but after doing it I have no regrets.

Since I mentioned the trip to England I'll throw in a couple teaser pics from our trip. The lake district was amazing, I'll be going back there for sure.

Great looking truck. The camper top looks awesome.

My father just bought a 2018 2500 and they pull incredibly.
I pulled the X23 behind it and it felt like it wasn't even there. My favorite part was merging on the interstate with the boat.

He added an air lift system to the rear to help with sag and bounce.

My dad has a 18' and the L5p is awesome. I wanted one bad but the right deal never came up so I jumped on this one when I found it.

I did have a deal worked out on a 3 month old midnight edition that a guy of craigslist was selling because he wanted out of his $800/month payment. We agreed on a price and I had everything setup and when he went to the bank and realized he needed to come up with $6k just to sell it to me he about s*** a brick. He obviously wasn't the most financially responsible human but I wasn't going to tell him that.

It's really just crazy how much the dealers totally control the market these days. It's almost impossible to find a nicer/newer truck in the private market anymore and when you do it's a complete pita to deal with the banks and lean releases and everything else.
