I like the stripes, simple but effective.

i put the stripes on for...3 reasons?

1. Needed to break up the black
2. i had left over flat green from another project
3. i dont know...because i could?

anyways, i really like the way it turned out. the truck looks much less damaged being all one color.

we will be towing a 5th wheel around to be camp hosts, so the truck had to atleast be a 20 footer.

It looks like it handles the weight well. Nice camper too. I was going to get a 5th wheel, then decided it was a bad idea as I can't haul tractors and the camper in 1 trip. So I went with a truck camper I put on my goose neck and have room for a tractor too.
