    Just statistics.........

    Yes..... I bought it in Phoenix and the next day I drove it back to Canada. 1800 miles. First time driving a HDT and first time importing a vehicle into Canada. I didn't have the air endorsement yet and I knew that could have been an issue in Alberta. That was 8 years ago and many air leaks and minor repairs.

    Locking Fuel cap

    What style of fuel cap do most of these trucks use? I just acquired some locking fuel caps that are a bayonet mount. They say Volvo on them so I thought they would fit. My truck [2004] has threaded fuel caps that are a little smaller than the bayonet mount. Just doing a little post purchase research that I should have done before I re purchase.

    Facebook man pulled and fined for length

    81 feet,, that is a lot of truck and trailer!! I am 62 feet and 64 feet depending on the trailer I am hooked to. I cannot imagine getting around easily at 81 ft. As far as I know 75 ft is the longest allowed for RV's in the States that have the longest allowable length. Alberta is 20 meters or 66 ft.

    Crossing the Canadian border is usually not a problem. I cross multiple times a year and I have not had my "turn" to get searched. Just the usual questions. I have carried my gun south with the proper paperwork. I do not think that having a CCW permit will show up on the Canadian border computer. They just assume that many Americans routinely travel with their firearms. Don't take your firearms to Canada without the proper paperwork. I have a friend who lost 4 nice guns and got a $5000.00 fine and can't visit Canada again. They gave him all the chance in the world to declare his guns and he chose to lie to them. They would have allowed him to return to the USA and put his guns in storage and then re-enter Canada. The same applies to entering the USA, a undeclared firearm will get you all kinds of legal problems and likely a latex allergy.

    Pull into the truck lane at an international border and see what they tell you. It will make your scale visit look like a non event.

    Anyone Pulling A Living Quarters Horse Trailer

    not sure of Deck length but I don't have room for a sxs. My Goldwing fits well, even in tight corners.

    Also, If you are going to single, I would suggest singling Mid. This will allow a little extra deck space for toys. I am singled short and I do carry my Bike but it would be nice to have a little more room.

    Anyone Pulling A Living Quarters Horse Trailer

    I pull a 38 ft LQ as well as a 40 ft Toy hauler. I have my hitch at about 38 inches. To accommodate either trailer I changed the LQ hitch to a 5th wheel, I also had to shorten the hitch on the LQ to get it level.

    Torque Multiplier

    I lent mine to a long time trucker. He has been changing his own truck tires in his HDT for years. You should have seen the grin on his face. He ordered one the next day.
