We purchased it new in 2006 (September) and took a few short trips that fall. With football (son) and my band (high school along with my daughter) we didn't have much time.
Wife's new job 2nd summer gave us no vacation so last year we did the beach. It was great! I have had no problems...had a better time pulling it with the 2006 3500 Duramax / Allison 6 speed. This is our spot at Longs SC. "Willow Tree Resort"
This was my spot 2 years ago with the 2004 HD 2500 6.0 Gas. Nice but not the diesel puller!!
