  1. It just depends. Hopefully by the middle of next week. The person who bought it lives in Florida so it has been dependent on the hurricane. I should know by non later than Monday when he is going to head this way.
  2. I think I can get one of the workampers here to take it over for me. If not, the dealership will come and get it.
  3. Sold the Pete this afternoon. Thanks to everyone who expressed an interest. I hope you will all find the truck that best meets your needs. Smokey
  4. 1650 torque and yes it has a factory differential lock.
  5. The truck is licensed as a private truck. The rear axle ratio is 3.25. I will send out pics to those who are requesting them.
  6. I am selling my Peterbilt 385 and we are going ot a motorhome. See my ad in the for sale section. This will make a great hauler for someone. It was spec'd as a hauler from the factory and has only been used for that purpose. Never used for anything heavier than a 5th wheel RV and only has 149,415 miles. Check out the ad if you are interested.
  7. This truck was spec'd from the factory as an RV Hauler and has not been used for any other purpose. It only has 149,415 miles and has been well cared for and maintained. Selling because we are going to a motorhome. This truck features the following: Cat C12 425 hp engine Meritor Freedomline 12 speed automated transmission Doonan hauler bed with a weatherguard compartment built into each side. The passenger side compartment has a retractable hose roller with air hose that is plumbed into the truck air system. 48' Sleeper with storage compartments and a closet on each side. There is also a sink mounted in the sleeper but I removed the water tank and pump in compartment below. Would be easy to reinstall. 48" storage box with top hinged door on hydraulic struts on passenger side. Shelves installed inside with an accordian step included for access. Box was originally designed as a motorcycle dog house so it could also be used for transporting a motorcycle. Trailer Saver air hitch with 3 air bags has a 7500 lb. pin weight capacity. New air bags were installed last month. Hitch includes vinyl cover. Camera mounted on hitch to assist with hooking up with color monitor in cab. Camera system is capable of incorporating an additional camera for the rear of 5th wheel. There is a connection on the side of the hitch for the second camera. Just need the camera and cable. 255/70R22.5 low profile tires were all replaced in August 2016 and they have just 2200 miles on them. 3-speed Jake Brake Bostrom Wide Ride seats 4 batteries were replaced in April 2016.

    Sad News to Report

    Jim Gahlen, one of the original HDT pioneers has been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. He is currently in hospice care and it doesn't look good. He and his wife Val could sure use everyone's prayers right now.
  11. Bretz RV dealership in Missoula, MT sells propane for $0.99 per gallon from March - September. Best deal I have ever seen. I can get my 40 lb. tanks filled for under $10. They have to take a loss but I guess it gets people into the dealership to look at RVs!
  12. Joe & Marcia If you go through Yuma on the way to Vegas give us a shout. We'd love to see you guys again.
  13. Leland & Kathy Glad to hear you enjoyed driving Rt. 98 in the FL Panhandle. When we leave Monticello later this month we plan to take that route too.
  14. Hey Bob & Molly You got out of Monticello just in time. We are expecting severe thunderstorms, high winds and there is a tornado warning until 3 AM tomorrow morning. Stay safe in the winds there in TX. I hope it lets up for you so you can get to Boerne tomorrow.
