All those toys are fun to have and play with.... but.

I miss my old 74 Chevy 1 ton, four on the floor, what a beast.
I could almost fit under the hood while working on it. Nothing in there I could not fix or replace. Now I don't even do my own oil change, too much bother.

Yeah but new trucks and motors are built much better,
as long as you dont overheat overrev you wont need to do any work on them ever..at least thats my experience..never had any problems with any Chevy V8

Interesting tech that's a slight step aside from current rear-mount cameras that are available. The integration could make it particularly intriguing.

On another note - not to hyjack the thread, but 'keeping and eye on live animals while on the road?' Do people really keep their pets in their trailers while they travel?


Horse people frequently do, and horse people tend to buy a lot of pickup trucks and tow a lot of trailers (making a very big generalization there, of course).

Even for dogs and cats, it could arguably be safer for them to be in a trailer (where they can't distract the driver or get in the way if they get startled) than in the tow vehicle.


Wow ... I wonder how hot or cold it gets back there in a towable when traveling down the road during various outside temperature conditions?

Our pet rides in a protective and seat-belted-in animal crate in the same environment that we ride in whenever we travel in the RV. Of course our little pet person may be considered to be a bit pampered. [emoticon]

Obviously, the livestock issue I get. What I found interesting was that the picture they showed under that usage suggestion was the inside of a FW - and I was just struggling to imagine having a pet bouncing around back there in uncontrolled temperatures.

I didn't even try to look at the link. Who comes up with these ideas like self driving etc which just drive the prices up and eliminates some buyers.


I suspect somebody said the same thing about electric starters, automatic transmissions, power windows, automatic chokes, automatic spark advance, etc., some decades ago.


i said that about back up cameras. now i love that i only have to get out once to hitch up the trailer. no more "ah too far, nope too close, ah pulled up to far again" lol. in and out of the truck 10 times sucks lol.
