kilbrider-



Congrats. Moving up from a Durango to a Tundra made a world of difference for my towing. You'll love it!

Good show on the new truck. I just got back from a 10 day solo RC boat racing trip with our ST26RK. We are headed out together for a 3 day camping weekend in Indiana for a drill team competition. Then a 3 day solo weekend for more RC boat racing. Also have a Good Sam Samboree trip to New York and Boston scheduled for September, a final solo RC racing trip in October and a camping trip to Florida in November. We enjoy racking the miles on the rig. Our 3/4 ton Silverado hauls the ST26RK with ease. The tough job is to keep from going too fast with it.

Kilbrider, hope you got a bigger gas tank on the Ford. The dealer said we were a 34 gallon tank but it really has only a 26 gallon tank and it seems like we are always stopping for gas.

Yep, we had the same problem with the Dakota. The Ford has a 136 Litre tank, which I think converts to about a 34 gallon tank.



Weare leaving this weekend for a two week trip to the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland. It's gorgeous country, sort of like a mini Alberta mountains area, but with the bonus of Atlantic Ocean seascapes everywhere!! Can't wait to try out the new truck.

Glad to see Newfies in the forum - I was getting lonely. Grew up in Cape St George and married a Burnt Island girl. We are thinking about taking a trip to the rock next summer (August) and do Gros Morne among other stops with friends from Codroy and Passadena. Let us know how the weather was - that will give ma an idea what to pack next year - shorts or snowsuit!!!!!

Nothing like driving home the new truck... Tomorrow is my truck's 5th birthday of the day Idrove it home.I still remember bringing 'er home like it was yesterday.

I went thru an '89 Bronco (still have but not my daily driver) , a '99 Expedition, a '99 F250 (gasser V10),a'99 Suburban, to the current '04PSD F250, in about a 5 year span. When you find the right truck the karma isgood.

One of the problems we were having during that time span was we kept upgrading the truck which led to upgrading the trailer which lead to upgrading the truck which led to....

Of course I had to promise the wife this was my last truck and my last trailer. I guess I have done good so far...

Here are a couple pics of our first trip with the new truck. A little over 2,500 km in two weeks. Hope his works:

Looks great! We upgraded to the same truck in Febuary. What a difference from our 05 f150.

kilbrider - glad to see you have had a good time with your ST26RK and the F150. We have been on the road with our ST26RK 6 times this season having been in Boston, New York City and Indianapolis from our home in Ohio. Our only glitch was a problem with the Norcold fridge which wouldn't stay running on propane. We fixed it by disconnecting the DC power, causing it to reset it's logic. The ST is now winterized and covered in the back yard. Til next season.....
