Ad reads "has had the best of care". That truck if FILTHY. If a person would let it get that dirty they would not properly do maintenance either. I'll pass!

 

I maintain my almost 200000 miles on it and still going strong pick 'em up truck pretty good. But after the last couple days moving cows'z there is a bit of cowchit tracked in on the Weathertech mats.

 

I see a motorsickle carrier on the back of that truck. Lack of showroom detailing of the 4 wheeled appliances and clumsy RV's is a common issue among motorsickle riders that should be addressed! :)

Motorsickle ride'n comes before clean'n. It's a a matter of priorities.

 

Ain't nuthin' wrong with a little cow poop on the pickup floor either. Smells like money.

Deezl, if you come to the ECR in Crossville, TN, I guarantee that you will NOT be nitpicked and judged. You will just have a great time with people who have better things to do than that. Not many of our rigs are Show Stars, they are tools that we employ to tow our campers wherever we want to go. My rig with my home made bed, is for my enjoyment and not to please someone else. If they think my rig is "filthy", they are welcome to spit shine it 'till their heart is content. I might even offer them a cold beverage. Don't let the comments of a few people keep you from the enjoyment of a rally. I have not been able to make it to the national rally yet but I'd bet a dollar to a doughnut that it is pretty much the same, spirit -wise, as the ECR. Charlie

Note to self: Never mind going to a rally. They'll just nit pik and judge you to death. :(

Deezl, thereare only two other persons on this thread (bmzero, Rick and Alano) who was actually at the most recent rally (National) (plus myself), and your statement doesn't deserve to be pointed at any rally. Nobody on this thread said anything that even sounded close to what you're claiming and in fact ALL folks are invited to all of the rallies. There certainly isn't any nitpicking going on, and all of us enjoy all the different setups that meet the needs of it's owner.

The only thing we can rightfully judge is your wrongful statement.

On the website they say it's a 770 with the top chopped off and 670 top put on. Strange. Sure looks like a 730 to me.

 

The 730 is a slightly different cab. The sleeper portion of the cab is wider than the front (where the doors are) and about a foot longer. This one is a 630.

So they did top a 780 with a 630. Neat. That explains the interior needs finishing.

 

Still has potential

 

I always thought about doing this but the inside work seemed to be the worst of if.

 

Be interesting to see what kind of job they did with the roof.

To me, the entire cab looks to be from the 600 series. I don't see anything that hints at 780. Maybe I'm missing something.

 

It's also possible that the guy writing the description isn't familiar with the truck and just guessed. We're probably the only group that would have a conversation about it. :rolleyes:

They may have put a 630 roof on a 670, but not on a 780. I'm with bmzero on this one -- there's no way that you can make a 730 out of 780 without a 730 roof. It's also the narrow cab with no side windows.

 

Someone found a 670 with the drop-ship optional workstation installed in it, then converted it to mid-roof by swapping the 670 roof for a 630 roof.

Deezl.... I hate to tell you but at the HDT rally, we had new trucks, old trucks, clean trucks and dirty trucks (mine was in the later category.... never could understand a wax job and clean interior when I had 1,000 mile of bugs to drive through to get home....) but everyone enjoyed each others company and learned some new things as well. Some trucks had beds, others didn't, some came with a garage, mine had two extra doors.... The main thing is that they ALL made it to the rally and we all had fun.

 

You should try it some time... If nothing else, make a run to the ECR... It is more of a social event with a fishing lake than something formal.

 

In fact, mine is at work with me today..... Felt like driving it in this morning.

Yup you guys are right on. I guess the pic in my phone looked like that truck was dif then it really was. I can see it now. Yikes.

I'm starting to wonder if it isn't a new trend to leave items dirty on the sales lot? We looked at a Newmar toy hauler at Camper World in Greenwood, IN a couple of months ago. It was in sad shape, dead batteries, awning half out, one flat tire, dirty. The salesman mentioned that if we bought it there would be a $795 "detailing fee" to clean it up and get it ready for us. We walked, no, ran.
