I did look at a bunch of medium duty trucks, but I kept going back to this model from Lone Star Haulers because I liked the cab configuration. Everybody else had just a plain crew cab while this is basically an extended crew cab. We can travel anywhere with everybody in one truck. I will tell you that the truck rides kinda rough without the boat, but the weight of the boat fixes that. The truck does have the air ride suspension, cab and seats, but it is still rough without the weight of the boat. When I say rough I am not talking about a beat your fillings out rough, but it is similar to the ride of our old F-450 when it was empty with no weight.Originally Posted by 9 Lives
There are a lot of nice medium duty trucks out there and I think that my second choice would have been the Ford Supercrewzer. That was a really nice truck too and it had the same 3126 Cat engine. The Pete was the choice because of the cab. There are some times when going through towns that I wish I had gone with a shorter truck, but overall I am happy with the Pete.
Here are a few old pics of the Pete and boat together before everything was lettered. I don't have any recent pictures of the truck and boat together. Here is a picture of the Supercrewzer too. We had the use of one for a race a few years ago as a promotional deal and it was a really nice truck!
