Hi from Ottawa

Unread postby ricoh on Tue Jan 05, 2010 3:52 pm


Just joined up. Looks like a great site. My name is Rick and I am 58 yrs old. I have been married to my beautiful wife Joanne for 30 yrs and have a daughter and a son, both out on their own and doing well. For our 30 anniversary DW and I bought each other a truck and 5th wheel trailer. I bought a 2005 Chev 2500 HD Duramax ext cab short box 4x4 with 35000 KM on it. The truck is pristine. It came equipped with a Pullrite 16 K Superglide hitch , brake control and wired inside the box. I got the box sprayed with Line-X ,got her Krowned as it had never seen winter and put a Trifold cover on the box. The trailer we bought is a Bighorn 3055RL. Overall length is 34'. At our pricepoint it was the nicest trailer that we could afford. My wife just fell in love with it. Can't wait till spring to pick it up and do some travelling and meeting some new friends. Hope we can get together with some of the members on here .

Welcome from down the road.
We were looking at the duramax, but they were a little pricey. We got our Ford for about 8000 less.
Love to see some photos.
