Does this dually make my ass look big?We graduated to a big truck, I mean a really big truck. We have been driving our 2005 3/4 ton Dodge for 5 years. It has been an awesome truck. But when we got the bigger trailer last year, we realized that the truck was a bit small for us to be totally safe. Al has always said it was like the cart pushing the pony. We have been thinking that when the time was right, we would need to move up in the truck world. Well, the time was right. Our truck was paid for, and the guy we have bought our past two vehicles from found us a deal that couldn’t be beat.
Meet Silver, our 2014 Ram dually truck. Whenever we hit the road, we always say, “On the road again.” Now, we can say “Hi Ho Silver..AWAY.” Corny I know, but that’s how we roll. The truck has the Big Horn package, which matches our Big Horn trailer perfectly. So far, I have not driven it. To be fair it took a couple days for us to get the truck. It is an Enterprise rental, that they sold, so we have only had it since Wednesday. I will drive the big ass truck though, just not with the trailer on it. The back seat does this way cool thing. We are going to see how Torrey likes riding here instead of on the seat. Put down a bed, get a barrier to keep her safe, we’ll see how it goes. She liked hanging out Ok though. We got gray sheep skin seat covers, and yes they match Roxy. There are two “hidden” compartments in the floor of the back seat. Compartments…coolers, you get the idea. My biggest disappointment is the voice command voice. It isn’t Sam Elliot. I think this is a huge oversight on Ram’s part. They could sell a lot more trucks to women if they fixed that. But, we are thrilled. It’s way more comfy, so those long drives are going to be a lot less painful. And of course the biggest thing is the safety. Bigger brakes, bigger springs, more stability. No risk of landing in a ditch, or driving off a cliff. Now we just need to get going. The desert awaits. A few more weeks though, and then it’s….Hi Ho Silver…AWAY.
