    We are really enjoying out Solitude a year and half later. We have had a few problems with replacement of an air conditioner the most outstanding. However our dealer Madison RV in Madison Alabama have been Johnny on the spot. Could not ask for better service. We have been parked at a campground but getting ready to do some vacation trips. I am now looking to buy a truck and have been advised go straight for a 350HD. We have the front living room floor plan which makes us quite heavy when loaded. I could throw in a "when my wife brings along everything" but I won't do that.
    Any suggestions on the truck. We plan some trips out west at some point and unless something happens this should be our last upgrade.

    I expect you will hear everyone's brand is the best. I have pulled a 17k Momentum 350TH through the mountains out west with a 2015 F350 dual axle diesel. Plenty happy with it. My brother pulls an 18 wheel tanker and pup, is a Chevy fan and even he was impressed.
