I realized after the last post about RVing that I hadn't included any pictures so after digging through some old photo albums the last couple of days I've come up with some memories. These two photos show our 1979 Dodge Centurion which we bought in August of 1998. Pictures were taken in September of 98. You can enlarge the photos by clicking on them.

In October of 2001 we bought a 24' Prowler Travel Trailer & towed it with a 1997 Dodge Ram p/u truck.

October 2003 saw another change when we purchased a 1992 Ford Gulf Stream 22' Conquest Class C. Took this one down to Big Bend National Park in Texas but the Class C turned out to be too small. I've included a few pics from that trip.In September of 2006 we decided on a truck & fifth wheel combo so purchased a 2005 28' Rockwood 5th wheel & a 2000 Chevy Silverado half ton 1500 p/u truck. They came as a combo & were fine to-gether under normal flat driving conditions but after driving it for a bit I just didn't have the confidence in the lighter 5.3 engined truck to do the job in the heavy mountains I knew we would be going through later. It was a really well kept & sharp looking truck, but...........

November of 2006 saw us trade in the Chevy Silverado on a heavier 2004 GMC 2500 Sierra heavy duty truck. Bigger engine & a stronger truck for towing. This p/u was totally loaded & I found it a bit overwhelming with all the gizmos. Traveled around the American Southwest in 06 & 07 but realized that the truck & 5th wheel just were not suited for us. Remember, we have 3 dogs & they had to ride in the small back seat of the truck. Oooooo, about 4,000 miles of continuous dog breath. Not nice!!!! This is the GMC & Rockwood. In April 2007 we traded the truck & trailer in on a 2003 Damon 33' Motorhome & that is what we have at the present time. No plans for any more changes at this point:))
