Dodge Diesel On the Road!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! 

Several months ago, we were able to obtain a 91 Dodge 3/4 ton diesel with a Cummins motor.  The owner bought the truck with 17k miles on it.  From that point until he parked the truck in 2002 he kept detailed records.  Every thing that he ever did to the truck is in the paperwork,  even down to fuses replaced!  There is also a notebook for his fuel usage (even how much the fuel was per gallon)  A really sweet deal! 
I did a post awhile back about it.

He lived  here in the RV Park for years and the DH worked with him.  Well, Glen decided it was time to move back to his homestate of Montana and he put the truck up for sale.  DH worked out a deal with him to purchase the truck.  Trust me when I tell you that there was some serious bartering involved!

He made a super sweet deal on a great truck.DH has always worried that we had no vehicle to tow our trailer with.  No more worries now!
It has a fifth wheel hitch, electric brakes, and air suspension!  There were some minor things that had to be done to the truck to get it legal.  I think we have put another 500 hundred bucks in it.  All money well spent to be sure.  Sure there are some little things that need to be done but they are just that.  Little things. 

But we are now legally on the road and I'm doing a Happy Dance!
