Well we finally did it….we purchased an HDT. After over a year researching, looking and learning we found a truck to suit our needs. It’s a 2016 Western Star that has been converted to a motorhome. It has all the bells and whistles you might expect on a newer vehicle and will take some time getting used to. It has a sleeper, refrigerator, microwave and inverter – as well as 240 gallons of diesel (that’s over 2400 miles of driving without having to fuel!).
Some might ask “why such a big truck?” Or, “don’t you already have a big truck?” Since we’re planning on a lengthy time on the road we felt we needed a commuter vehicle. This truck is set up to haul a Smart car on the bed. We drove a smart while in Dallas and again in Portland. They are surprisingly comfortable. Take a look at our YouTube video to see how these cars are loaded and unloaded:
