  1. Buying the Right Truck then 5th Wheel

    Grew up tenting, back of pickup with topper, pop-up camper, small trailer, big trailer, medium size motorhome. DH & I finally tried a fiver & pickup. Driving the pair was terrible. Even though the size combination was right, they were not compatible. Individually they were great. Then I found the HDT forum here. Research, look, research, look, research, buy an HDT. Pulled the fiver great. NO issues. Fiver was smaller than the truck, so we ended up getting a 40' fiver with 3 slides. Dh is a tool-nut & we ended up with most of his hand-tools plus anything else that fit. For us, it was the factor that we could stop securely, not that we could pull. Being able to stop safely was more important than being able to pull. For the size rig you want to pull, an MDT or HDT would be better and safer. They come as automatics now & while they look big, are big, they are easily drivable by you or YOUR WIFE. Plus a nice HDT would be as cheap as the big pickup and last a lot longer. My thoughts only. yours are entitled to be different. Make sure your other half agrees and helps with the research. Selma
  2. Quickbooks Online or Something else?

    Have been using QuickBooks Pro for 20 plus years. Now using QuickBooks On-line version for 4 yrs. Per Intuit it works best with Mozilla Firefox. Neither one are on my favorite list. QB On-Line is not user friendly to an old QB Pro user. The end results are the same but it feels like you are having to take extra steps to get there. You have to do a lot of hunting to find where you want to go as the program organization is very different. It is very expensive as you either do the monthly thing or an annual which does not save that much. Also, you can save a backup on your computer, but not access it off-line. That bugs me as if I only want a piece of info for the boss who is 1200 miles away at the end of a cell phone, I have to log onto the internet if it is available, then log into the program, then do a search thru a complicated program menu to find the info needed. If internet is not available then I am out of luck and so is the boss out in the muddy field. All the internet and computer services are supposed to make our lives easier but they sure can make things very complicated at time. Just my personal opinion. Selma
