It's like an adult blanket fort.

I was thinking the same thing! And your doggie's bed looks like a body size version of my trapper hat!

Oh, by the way, we're tailgating at a Buffalo Bills game there is what that is. I'm not actually a homeless guy grilling in a Walmart parking lot like it appears.

Miss M, I apologize if it seems like we are trying to hijack your thread, but seeing your awesome video of your light weight truck just reminded me of how Daniel B. once posted some pictures of the interior of his LW truck. Unfortunately since my friend Daniel is such a "TIGHT WAD CHEAPO," his photo sharing accounts always seem to expire. Brett has to work overtime just to try and resurrect Daniel's photos from their ether world graves.

Most of the newer folks in here are unaware that Daniel B used to stalk me by using the Trucker Tracker tools here on the web site. He would chase me across the country in hopes that he could catch up with me and then get me to buy his lunch. One of those times when we enjoyed a meal together I took a picture of his light weight truck, but he begged me not to ever post it on the forum. You see Daniel is a little guy - I mean I seriously doubt he weighs a hundred pounds! Apparently, when he showed up at Prime and they realized just how small he really was they asked him if it would be okay to put him in a very rare "ultra-light" truck, and he agreed to it because they offered him a few extra pennies per mile. Now that Daniel is driving a big old Peterbilt, he contacted me for some advice because he could not reach the pedals with his feet. I told him he could take some duct tape and tape a 2" x 4" board to the bottom of his boots and that should do the trick. So, If you are ever over near Sacramento, California and you see a little kid with two by fours taped onto the bottom of his boots getting out of a Peterbilt pulling double fuel tankers, you'll know you have spotted my little buddy.

Since his photos of his LW truck have all expired, I think it is time I let you guys see that "Ultra-Light" truck he was driving for a while. He's gonna kill me for breaking my word to him, but I just think that most of you guys should be forewarned in case anyone tries to get you into one of these really rare "Ultra Light" trucks. Now he did get 12 miles per gallon in this thing, but he kept having to replace his drive axle tires almost every ten thousand miles, so I'm not sure if that fuel savings offset the expense of the tires or not.

Thanks so much for posting this! I think when I upgrade I'm going to ask for a full sized truck. My youngest son wants to spend some time out on the road with me.

Yeah, it's just me and the pupper so this is fine for now. If my husband decides to ride with me then I'll move up to a full size.

I'll tell you, this truck is the best. I love it! The only complaint is have is the clutch and shifter. But the next one I get will be an automatic, which will be lovely while driving up here doing those Walmart runs. Also, since I'm now home every other weekend I've been able to consolidate my in truck needs further and I've gotten rid of the hanging drawers since I don't need quite so much stuff with me at all times. Not only am I at home frequently, I'm at a Walmart every night!

I've also turned the fridge to the right so the back is against the dash and the doors open towards the bunk. That opened up more floor space in front of it, and I'm getting a ramp so Alfie and get on the bunk unassisted. When I get home this weekend to deal utter and do a good clean, I'll post some update shots.
