Nice, congrats, what power is in it?

We have a 2016 Dodge 3500 W/ the 6.7 Cummins, and the Dodge factory rear Air bag suspension, which is really sweet.. Pulls the 388 like its not there, this is the only pic I have hooked-up to 1 of the boats..

The rv has v10 gaser-305HP/420TQ. Pulls well but sounds wimpy. Needs the Gale Banks exhaust kit.

You can now buy a 5500 Ram Chassis Class C RV with the Cummins in 2WD or 4WD!

Nice rig but out of my price range. The unit I have now has a tow rating of 7500 lbs. That’s plenty for our little boat.

Old school tow rig becaue the dually's with big V8's could not do the job easily over the Rockies when we raced in California.

The boat and truck are gone but the model keeps the memory alive.

ERA was 1978 thru 1980

When the boat finally arrived at a race site, it was all set to go and play with my friends.

Notice the crowds in Newport Beach, California that came out to watch the offshore racing.
