…Just got easier!
We had to go to Orscheln’s Farm & Home store (bigger, better and cheaper than TSC) to check to see if my tractor seat came in and decided to swing by the Chevy dealer while we were in the area. I kept hearing a little voice calling my name, but Rosanne didn’t want me to follow the sound. I couldn’t resist the temptation so I kept walking through the lot and the voice got louder. It was coming from behind a row of Tahoes and 2500 short bed pickups. When I got there I found this.
I felt sorry for it since it was sitting near the back of the lot and looked so out of place so I checked it out. It’s a 2013 3500 LTZ. With a 6.6 liter Duramax engine connected to an Allison six speed tranny I figured it should be everything I need to pull my enclosed trailer or any other trailer going to CubFests, so I had to talk to a salesman to see what it would take for me to give it a good home. Needless to say we worked out a deal we both could live with. My ¾ ton Cuburban with its 8.1 liter gasser and Allison five speed are great for pulling my 18 foot trailer with a couple Cubs, but I my 24 foot enclosed trailer was a little more than I cared for when caught up in cross winds.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
