Default Ultimate Tow Vehicle

Check this bad boy out.....F650 Crew Cab Dualley. Cat Diesel, Class 5 Tow hitch. The big daddy of Tow vehicles.

One of these can be yours for only $80k or so. All the toys inside. Can seat 6 adults in the rear bench, or so the ad says.

Saw this in Power Boat Magazine this month.

I would go with the low-pro and 5 wheel. That one is bad but to high for a 5 wheel.

John,

No offense, but I think GM took a wrong turn by utilizing the Van cabs for the new 4500+ series. The prior models years with the truck cabs like the Ford above look much better in my opinion. How does the interior room and comfort compare to the old ones?

getreal - Sounds like a deal, but it would have to be my daily driver - how's it do around town?

-Brian

Now that is what I'm talking about.

We might be looking into one of these if we are to be hauling the Fountain to some of the poker runs we want to do. The truck I have now has pulled everything I ever put behind it but I think a 47SC might be pushing it's limits.

First comes the house on the water though.

This truck is great for a daily driver. The turning radius is better than most cars. Because of the front-end design and a straight axle the wheelbase is 2Ē shorter than a standard pick-up. Itís easier to park than a F-250. The biggest boat Iíve towed so far is a canopied 37í Talon with blower motors that we race in PX on the west coast. The boat came out of the water at 12,500 lbs. plus the trailer weight, the truck stops on a dime. I canít imagine any size trailer boat being a problem.
I bought it with a Power Stroke because to cost of more power and repair is a lot cheaper than a Cat, with an Allison 4 speed auto I get around 14 mph. The ride is the same a lifted 4x4, next week Iím putting on an air ride system.
