In 2000 I retired as an Educator/Coach after 33 rewarding years. My wife and I decided to hit the road a see Our beautiful Country. After buying a new Designer fifth wheel RV,we orded a new 2001 FORD Super Duty SuperCab with the 7.3 cu. inch Power Stroke Diesel. After over eleven years on the road totaling over 125,000 carefree miles,the tough,reliable FORD workhorse is still getting the job done of pulling our 40 ft long,15,000 pound RV !! While the proven tough Ford F-350 is still proudly on the job for us,we are on our third fifth wheel !! We thought that we would after over a decade of travel have to replace our truck,but the TOUGH FORD F-350 is now ready to pull it’s fouth new fifth wheel in over eleven straight years of reliable,economical,and enjoyable service. As we prepare for our latest 1,400 mile tow to winter in south Florida in 2012–the TOUGH FORD F-350 is the least of our concerns–it has proven why the FORD F-Series trucks are the World’s BEST SELLING,Most Popular,and DEFINITELY “TOUGHEST” Trucks–DRIVE ONE!!
