Judging by your route, it looks like you're planning to be at Rambleramma. I haven't done that show in few years, but it might be worth the drive just to see Peggy. I'm about 3 1/2 hours away.

Rambleramma is definitely on the route! It is one I've wanted to attend for a long time and it all fell into place to make it this year. I'm getting excited already and the trip is 2 months away! LOL

Any idiot can build a Chevy. It requires a special idiot to build a Rambler.

I'd expect nothing less with that truck. Maybe some of the OTR drivers around here need to have you assist! LOL. Seriously, I know there's no match as far as load pulling, etc. - you'd be able to yank a house clean off its foundation with that truck. I worked with a fellow (who retired 3 years before I did) who had a similar truck and the huge camper he pulled - effortlessly - it was amazing. It was smooth and quiet. We took it to some of our field offices when we needed to handle major network upgrades - because it was so comfortable and actually economical on fuel, too. (of course he grumbled about the new filters and this and that it required - but then he grumbled a lot anyway)

Bill, the new truck with it's 925 ft lbs of torque and 440 hp eats those hills in 6th gear with the cruise on!

I80 in east Iowa gives truckers a run for their money and tests their engines......... 
My previous pickup, the 95 Ford with 351, couldn't keep up the speed limit when towing a car. It might do 55 or 60 if you pushed it hard. This truck wraps up to 5 or 6K and handles it nicely. 

It appears I may have a place to stay - a little drive away but still even 45 minutes is nothing after an all-day drive.

If you were for sure coming Bill and needed a convoy to help make the trip easier I would be more than happy to head down through South Dakota and Iowa. I was only changing things up as I've been through the south both ways the past 3 years! Figured I could stop in K-town to go to the museum etc and get some more pictures.
