Path2FIRE Posted May 22, 2018 Report Share Posted May 22, 2018 I’m a few years from retirement so want to dip a toe in the MDT/HDT space for safely moving our TT out West. If we love using it for long weekend and occasional summer week long trips(<2,000 miles/year), we may upgrade to nicer truck and rv for long trips in retirement. Tractor would need to be stored offsite with RV when not in use. I’m not mechanically inclined. I see lots of posts on folks repairing / replacing parts on this forum. I saw a post from a young FT couple (?on FB?) who gave up on the HDT after being stranded one too many times. I am happy to pay skilled mechanics for scheduled service / PM on vehicles, but do NOT want a truck project. I want to move the rv safely and reliably. Considering the low miles anticipated, compared to a LGT, are used HDTs ‘reliable?’ Assuming I don’t choose a lemon, on average, will it get us up and down the mountains from point A to point B 99 out of 100 times (or only 9 out of 10 times) without toolboxes or service folks involved? I admire the collective experience / wisdom here. Thank you. Rich Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
