    I bought a Gravely as well. Their lifetime warranty and being a local builder were big reasons why.

    Agreed. I went by there and their build quality looks great.

    Very nice setup, I love that truck though. The orange looks brilliant!

    I am also going to start out with a 20' bumper pull and cab over camper.

    Crawler Hauler setups

    Can't believe that I never posted up in this thread, but we've been real happy with our Hillbilly Hilton. It's big enough to fit everything I need, without being too large. I'm using a 14K Load Trail GN and a light cabover, on it. It was important for me to have a lo-boy GN, like my old Big Tex. It tows great with or without my rig on it. Kelly and I have spent a few weeks traveling in it and I've lived out of it, for five or so weeks, this past year.





    I've hauled it deep into USFS land and even camped at the entrance to Death Row, in Montrose. That's a long nasty trip in, but the setup handled it with ease.



    yah, Huck you newbie, Rubicon drivin', mall Cruisin', bling-bling, bolt-on, got no drivin skillz, drove thru a AutoZone with a crap magnet attached, H2 wannabe, poseur! Pay attention!
    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    Axles might be rated for 10,400#, but no way the 1" plywood floor in that toyhauler will stand up to the load long term

    Crawler Hauler setups

    Two thoughts: 1) I would be checking to see just what was reinforced. Those toyhaulers are notoriously underbuilt for larger rigs. 2) Never liked the idea of sleeping and eating where the rig may be leaking, gear oil and gas fumes, etc.
    I always looked at having separate living quarters from the garage area. We just damage our stuff enough that leaks are bound to be a semi-regular occurrence.

    Enjoy it. We said goodbye to it, in Parker, but knew it was going to a good home.

    Use it in good health.
