Brian Spagnola hooked me up with the F450 and I have been looking for the right Cabover for awhile now...Found this one and drove to Atlanta last weekend to get it...Absolutely love it and ready to hit the road!! I'll use this for a year then plan on getting the Host Mammoth - assuming I use it as much as I think I will.

The plan is to use this as the place to stay during tournaments and next summer, hit the North with my Ranger in tow....

...Nice rig .....
I have been looking to do the same thing ......
pulling "TRIPLES" is not a good thing,, I think.

why did you go with the 450 ?
did you need that much for the camper ?

Interesting. Does it not hang out over your trailer hitch and block it?

Nice setup. You’ll like the F450, I have a 2015. Turning radius is great, great truck, can’t beat it for towing.

I was looking at those originally but my wife wanted no part of it so I suffer thru a 34 foot rv for all my fishing trips. Mines on a f550 chassis with 6.7.

Do you have a generator for charging? Make sure if you get a small one and set it outside you lock it to your truck.....

I stay at a lot of walmarts while out of town fishing, they have good lights to get my gear ready and your allowed to park there.

Looks like good times ahead for you. If I only had the time and money. I would be interested in that type of adventure. Good luck friend and be safe out there on the tournament trail.
