    I noticed the bed liner is melted, makes me wonder what kind of terrible and scary things that poor truck has been through and how many people it’s owner has killed from gross negligence.

    Those aren’t dents, they’re crack bruises.

    I'll bet three nickels and a dozen day old donuts(glazed) that that guy thinks he is always the smartest guy in the room.

    They wanted a thousand dollars to put a hitch in my truck, I bought all this at Wal Mart for fifty bucks and it works fine.
    I ain't worried about no safety chains, this set up is rock solid.

    I’ve met Josh at Haylett at the dealership in Michigan, he was actually pretty cool. I told him straight up I wasn’t going to buy for another year, and he spent another 20-30 minutes talking my wife and me. He asked about our needs, and then walked us around and showed us a few different units. I got the impression that his knowledge of the industry was better than 99.9% of the other sales guys.

    /end of my plug for what seemed like a stand up sales guy in a crowd of fools

    Heck no, I'm sick of winter already!

    I just made my reservations for my annual April trip to Moab, it'll probably be the first outing of the year for the camper, unless we get a nice spring and get to go out at Easter like we did this year.

    So far, for April 2020: reservations made, trail itinerary mapped out by day, meals planned and shopping list made out, fuel stops planned, new tires for the bike ordered yesterday.

    I'm a compulsive planner, what can I say.

    George.....I knew I liked you for some reason,

    I make some reservations in 12 months in advance, look in the town's that are in the fuel stop schedule for good mom and pop diner's, or someplace to get good brisket, scan the area for cool things to see, ...... it's a cross I bare, I am a compulsive long term planner.

    So the assumption on the melted bed liner is one of these running in the bed so Lulu May can watch "her stories" on the TV in the RV while going down the road and, personally, offsetting the load on the pin weight?

    Tried to figure out why the melted liner. The generator makes sense, with the exhaust nearest the top.

    Being scatter brained doesn’t affect driving “Oh lookit, a road. :dj” “Oh wait, there’s another road. :patch” “Oh look, a squirrel (besides the driver).” Etc, etc, etc ... :D

    Same here, in May 2019 I started planning a 4 day Baja trip... for April 2020. Now it's not quite so far away.

    It’s how I manage my anxiety issues. I simply cannot fly by the seat of my pants, I would quite literally have a breakdown.
