I want a truck to pull my race trailer that I can camp in for two or three days at the race track. One of the guys I race with started out with a 3/4 ton FWD pickup with a crew or extended cab, long box that he put a slide-in camper into and then hooked his 24' enclosed trailer onto. The 70 mile trip to the track scared the $&() out of him as it as it wandered all over the road. He dumped the truck immediately, got a 1 ton and is much happier.
Started looking for 379 Peterbilt TC, 24' to 30' box, bumper pull--but ended up w/1999 Liberty Coach conversion of 45' Prevost XLV bus. 1,000sf heated/AC'd race shop w/dump station, 50amp shore pwr where bus parks, 3 NASCAR/ARCA race cars & 26' Bravo trailer.
