Well, I prefer a DRW, but I have an older truck and a heavy fifth wheel. It does tend to give one a bit of a feeling of security, having that second wheel on each side. But I've never had a flat, so that could be a wash. But the truck handles well so I'm happy.

I was referring to your photos with only 1 wheel in the center of the back.

Ah, gotcha. Doh, a little slow on the uptake. LOL

I get in my LongHorn DRW and I constantly think and tell my wife how much I LOVE my Truck. Sure it may be EASIER to drive a SRW when it comes to finding a parking spot. That is really the only minor negative for me. I simply look for an end spot and pull up on the curb or park out and take two.

OK, so here is my go to parking position with my DRW at Costco and other locations. Notice I have the "courtesy" B&W hide a ball so no one bangs their legs! Notice I am NOT hanging way over the sidewalk???

Have I mentioned I LOVE my DRW???

Best to just get that new one right now!! Interest is low, prices continue to rise. Saving up, no longer works! There is the lottery though??

That truck just never gets dirty! Good thing, as it seems it needs hand washing, which is best anyway!

I know this is a TV forum, but was enjoying, hoping for more motorcycle pics! I wanted to post a pic of mine, but when scanning my puter, only found two to easily post. One, my bike being double towed behind FW, other had bikini clad girl sitting on it in my shop, maybe not forum appropriate.
