towrigs.jpg 522304_385568171478471_638140287_n.jpg I use a 2004 Ford Expedition to tow the boat. I also have a 5th wheel. I use a 2004 Ford F350 to tow it with. What do you tow your boat and/or toys with?

2005 1500 Ram @142000 miles. I was holding out for the supposed earth shattering 2015 F-150 that turned out to be a huge aluminum let down, so I'm looking to update to a 2015 Ram.

You've got some nice rigs there Boat Crazy. My truck is overkill too, but mine, like yours has camper duty with a fifth wheel camper.

Nothing special. A 2007 Chevy TrailBlazer with the 298hp 4.2L. She's got 50k miles and does an amazing job towing.
Wife wants a new Acadia, but I'm waiting for the new Tahoe to come out. 212x 3.jpg

2005 Ford F-150 FX4 with 5.4L V8. I love it but we really want to get a Suburban or something like that. The truck is just too tight for our family of 5.

Honestly I would REALLY like a conversion van, but with the steep ramps around here we must have a 4x4 and 4x4 conversion vans are hard to find and expensive when you do find them.

2000 Chevy Silverado 4.8L V8 that has over 200K miles. It's a daily fight to keep Danny away from the Toyota dealership for that 4x4 Special Edition Tundra he wants. LOL

2008 Durango Limited AWD with the Hemi. 95,000 miles. Good safety margin on tow capacity. Buckets of torque to spare. Plenty of power on tap when towing at freeway speeds, uphill, etc. Ride is mediocre for an SUV when not towing. Thirsty. Really beginning to look and feel oldish, unfortunately.
