here's my tow rig. i don't know who the girl is. i think she came with it

So what did it come as an option, and you decided you didn't need it, I wonder how much an option like that costs, and how much maintence of an option like that is. :laugh:

You got lucky, takes my whole check to keep mine up and running, and if I toss it out it will take 1/2 of everything  I have with it. :laugh:

Wow, you guys have some nice rigs there, since I went to Sierra Nat. Forest last week I took a few with my truck hooked up. This would be at total of around 55 feet. Good thing that I'm not one to fly down a grade with my motorhome, coming down the hill on 168 I lost a vaccum booster, peddle went to the floor. Since I was rolling down in 1st it was ok but my wife kept asking me why I had such a funny look on my face as we slowly came down, maybe looked something like this :yikes:

Fortunatly it was just a hose and fixed it right up.
