    • I put barely 6k miles on my new in March 2019 including the drive up to Colorado once my house sold, in one year. There are days I never leave my property, weeks too. And that was before Covid19. I'll be driving more  just playing with it and learning it. And we will have the Forester for hauling too.
    • One issue you might run into with a Ram 1500 is cargo capacity, and that depends on the model you get.  I once looked at a Laramie, about all the bells and whistles you can get, and it’s cargo capacity was only 18 lbs more than the Jeep Grand Cherokee that was the marginal TV I had at the time.  That wouldn’t work as I was also planning on adding both tongue weight and items I was going to put in the trailer, so I ended up buying a Ford F-150 with less bells and whistles and more cargo capacity. I’ve heard from others who drive diesels that maintenance is higher.  I don’t have any direct knowledge of that as I’ve only owned gas engines.  I’ve also heard that they (the engines) are heavier, which could cut into your cargo capacity also.  I’m quite happy with my new over-kill (for my current TT) truck, an F350.  I’m not complaining about having too much truck as I’m also thinking of replacing my trailer, too. 4x4 cuts down on your cargo capacity, and depending on whether it has an AWD setting, you may be limited to only using it on dirt roads.  My F150 had AWD in addition to 4x4 and it was nice to use when I was on an uphill dirt road pulling onto a paved road.  Occasionally the back wheels would lose traction and having power to the front wheels makes that less likely to happen.  My F350 has a transfer case, so it’s 4WD is limited to the dirt, mud and snow. Best thing to do is to choose the trailer first, then the truck, something I didn’t do (bought the Jeep with a vague idea that I might get a trailer and no idea how limiting the Jeep was as far as a TV).  And if possible, choose a TV that is over-rated for the trailer.  While my F150 was not marginal for my trailer and was perfect when I was part-time, when I went full-time I started hitting the F150’s GVWR - I have too much stuff.  I now tow with an F350 and don’t worry about what I’m carrying.
    • Their website says they are built on either a Ford or a Chevy chassis. https://coachmenrv.com/class-c-motorhomes/leprechaun Determine which yours is and buy running boards for that model truck. Linda Sand
    • We just bought a new Coachman Leprechaun motorhome.  I have been looking for a pair of running boards for it.  So far have not found anything for MH just trucks.  We are in Southwest MO any suggestions?
    • I signed up for facebook about 6 years ago to keep track of our 17 grandchildren. I gave up after a few months and tried to delete my account. I ran an internet search for how to do a complete account deletion, and did so that evening. Here we are today and I still get emails that my account is available, so I blacklisted facebook emails and everything on my computer that says facebook in the file. Problem gone. IMO facebook is like a pail of water, keep swishing it around and you are noticed. Keep your hand out and you find out just how important you really are to others.
