I see a recipe for heading out on a camping trip then before you get to your destination
you will be riding your horses to the auto parts house
at least you will have living quarters and transportation when your wrenching roadside

not to be downer. but those are some old vehicles and your going to be pushing them hard. specially if you hit hills

My opinion anyway..
, like it would make it that far...

Problem I have is I have an 83 vanguard camper and they don't fit in new trucks because old campers flare out wider after wheel wells otherwise I would've just thrown it in the back of my 2015 f250 everytime I go camping.

If you have a 2015 f250, why aren't you just buying a camper that fits that?

I have NO idea how you have a new truck and are looking at that garbage? Not trying to be mean, but you couldn't pay me to take one of those trucks over my 2015. And I don't care if it will get abused camping. It's a truck.

I like my old trucks for hobbies, and when something happens I don't have to worry about relying on them the next day for work. Limping them home after a weekend is one thing for me. Relying on them as a dd now that I have one thats new reliable and nice is another. May seem a$$ backwards to some but makes sense to me...even if I'm not all there lol 😀

And at this time I'm saving up for property with house so I don't have much money to play with on the side at the moment.

If I can take the beater out a couple times before snow flies and I gotta do some maintenance over the winter that's fine...just not really wanting a lemon off the bat is a big thing for me.

I see you signature, and read your post.
Doesn't look like saving for a house, lol.
Just sayin...

If you want to go camping with horses, buy a trailer with living quarters, and be done. More money up front, and a sh!tton less headache.

id be more inclined to go with the dodge over the other options there...


he!l i'd even buy this and throw a used trans in it! Cheaper than wht you are looking for and parts are still available easily for it.

or this if you could live with 2wd

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/e...ationFlag=true


or this-a little rouogh body wise but still better than anything else you posted

http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/l...ationFlag=true

Spend some time on kijiji=there are a tn of options

True, 4 horse trailer with living quarters means longer rig and less access to camping spots. Right now we have a bumper pull 2 horse.

don't get us wrong were not bashing on you
and I have contemplated a dedicated truck camper vehicle myself
VS my DD 2006 but the added insurance and upkeep / upgrades plus parking concerns far outweighed my loading and unloading the camper before work headache

Thanks, I have been reading up on all of them and it seems still to be the best option for towing/hauling even with the amount of km. With reading it seems one of the big issues on the 12v is the killer dowel pin that has a tendency to loosen out and eventually the ip. 7.3idi seems to have the cavitation issue, ip and glow plugs.
