New Truck!

The next piece of our transition to a mobile lifestyle is in place: we've got a new truck:

It's a 2013 Chevy HD 3500, 1 ton, extended cab, long bed, 4x4, turbo diesel in metallic gray with ebony leather interior.

We traded in our Toyota Tacoma for this truck on Tuesday, got running boards installed the next day, and have enjoyed driving it around the city for the past few days. We need to put at least 1,000 miles on it before we get a trailer and we will have a fifth wheel trailer hitch installed soon.

Closer and closer to the full time RVing!


  1. Whoo hoo! Congrats! The truck is a beaut.

    1. Thanks! :-) Just one more piece in place!

      Amazingly, after all the research we've done, our search for the fifth wheel is still evolving...we still don't know what we will end up with! That, of course, is fodder for another post...

  2. Congrats on the new truck!! It's verrrry nice!!! Can't wait to see the 5th wheel hitched on it!!
