Be very careful, Janet had a Magnum with the Hemi in it and got stopped for speeding seven times in six weeks, she had way to much fun

Thank ya,,,Virginia RVer's,,I like how y'all have the matching trim on the TV and 5er,,,nice,,is your Dodge a 3500,,OR can a 2500 Ram handle that big 5er





Thank you too,,Spinella,,,were also thinking bout getting a camper top or a fiberglass tonneau cover,,they are proud of both (price wise)...



Thank ya,, fhenn,,I'm a little confused with your reply,,,,,not on the 7 ticket part (she wouldn't of been having fun at the house after about the 2nd one) ,,,,,,,,our magnum 4.7 is the motor in the 1500,,the 5.7 Hemi is in the 2500,,,,,,are you saying she got the tickets in a dodge magnum car,,with a hemi in it ?,,,,I think that's what your saying ,,in any case I'll tell her to keep the reins pulled back a little ,,,y'all have a good day.....

Thanks... You are correct it is a 3500. Now that I have the truck and trailer matching, my stripes on the trailer are fadeing and I'm working with Crossroads to replace them so it will match again.



Again, nice looking rig you have there. Enjoy it.
