I'm pulling a little bitty trailer (6,000 pounds wet) -- but hey -- it's our first camper, and we bought it when I was driving my 2002 1/2 ton! We're looking at 5th wheels to start the 2004 camping season with, so the signature will be changing soon, I'm sure!

New TV in the Sig.


Using the Prodigy Controller, Yes I love it too.


Hitch set-up is a Reese HP Dual Cam Strait-Line Hitch.


Will be pulling 2003 Trail-Lite 8305S about 6000lb with 1/2 of water.





Old TV was 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7L Hemi. Yes, it really could pull the Trailer. (In Flat Land)
It's my wife's ride now.Edited by: DavesDmax

Here goes, in the signature is the tow rig, and the towed rig is a '03 Carriage Cameo 36 ft., 3 slide, factory extended pin, 14K Reese fixed hitch.

Previous: '98 Chevy K2500, Ext Cab, 454, Auto, Banks Power, air bags
Previous to that: 92 K2500 6 lug, 350, air bags

Clearly and no suprise, the '04 is a pullin' machine, and has yet to break a sweat. Eventhough the 454 did OK, it did break a sweat and went along way to litening my gas wallet

That 36' Cameo doesn't exceed the 14k hitch capacity loaded? Have you ever taken it to the scales?

Well... if not it is close I am sure. Have towed that trailer over 5K miles with it, up down, round d' round. To be honest, I looked at the 16K hitch, and did not see that much that would suggest the 14 K was not plenty of hitch. Frame mounts are exactly the same, so I am feeling OK with it. I have actually stayed with it until I decide if I need the SlideRite setup, but having a tough time justifying the $2K. I do not need it as my set up will allow 90 degree turns, which I have yet to need.

This is what I've been towing--but not that often. I've only hauled it three times so far--about 45 miles total.


This picture was taken shortly after I bought this boat on March 1st for $500 from an estate sale. The owner couldn't bear to part with it, so it sat for 18 years until he died. Fortunately, fiberglass and teak can take this sort of exposure to the New England elements.


When I lived in San Francisco, I crewed on this type of boat for three years. Now is my chance to skipper one.





This is an Etchells class racing sloop. The list Etchells national champions of this class reads like a who's who of the best sailors in the world and includes my hero Dennis Connor. I hope to start racing competitively again in the next year or two.


It's one of most popular high performance keelboat racing classes. To give you an idea of what kind of boat this is; if this boat was a car it would a sidecar racer--light fast, and it's very important to put your weight out to keep the boat flat.








I was so excited about the boat I was out there in 22 deg weather washing and cleaning the boat. I could not have done that without lots of hot water to melt the ice before I could get to the dirt.








The mahogony floorboards were about 75" long. When I got the boat all that wood had rotted away, as had the kelson (which attaches the keel to the boat). There was nothing left but dust. I had to rebuilt the supports and decking from scratch.


These are the new cockpit sole teak floorboards. I spent more on the teak, rebuilding the trailer, and on new running rigging (rope), than I did on the boat itself.
