Well we picked up a 11m with a generator and put a ram 3500 under her with 2 extra leaf springs in the rear. It’s an 07 with a 5.9 Cummings 4x4 with duals the bed is 39” off the ground. We left the east coast driving thru the mountains cruise set at 55 and she maintained 55 up the mountains and 60 going down only using the jake brake leaving cruise set at 55. Now in South Dakota and all is going great in rest areas we run the Generator and A/C. The refrigerator is in 12 volt mode while driving. We stop at campgrounds ever night. All systems in the Caribou work great had to blow some air thru the Hot water heater at first but all good now. The torklift tie down system is rock solid and the 48” extension is built solid. Going from a class A to this has been intresting but we really like this setup. My last tank of fuel was 15.3 MPG but averaged 14.6 for the whole trip so far. This old TC was built solid. Just letting PPL know there can be a lot of enjoyment going the TC route.

Welcome to the forum.

Glad you like your new equipment!

 

Got any pics?

I'm guessing it looks similar to this. . .
