Welp,,, went and pulled the trigger on the tow vehicle... step 1 accomplished!

She aint the prettiest girl at the prom.. but think she'll git R done..

1999 Ford F-350 Crew cab, 7.3L Turbo Diesel w/tow package and 5th wheel
the interior is a little on the retro side.. but them seats are comfy and man the room... like ridin a sofa in the back.

ha ha ha .. Bread man... killin me... Yeah she's definately a "rodeo" queen! :D

Nope Forrest... just waitin to hit the lotto now so I can get a boat behind her! ;)
And I'm right there with ya Gery and Mike... I cant wait to see neither!!! ;)

Drop, thanx for all the banter back an forth man! after spending half the day with it, the truck fit the bill for the requirements. Your right, used market is pretty good right now variety wise. After lookin at new in that class... (sticker shock)... definately feel better about a good used purchase! :) I dont think towin will be an issue now. She's rated for trailer weight of 12,500 lbs. 5th wheel rated at a little more than that.

She's got the F-150... she's already ding'd that up enough.. she can have it! ha ha hah ah... Thing has more shoppin cart and door dings on it than a 10 year old Food lion buggy..
Momma wont like it anyway,, it's loud, rides like a truck,, and has something "other" than a new car smell to it! ha ha ha ha ...... :)

Here's one of the few yaks that costs enough to justify the truck.

Hobie Kayaks - Mirage Outfitter

Hate to say it, but it even fits the carolina blue requirement.

To spend more money than that, you'll pretty much have to import one from South Africa, and I don't recall seeing any of those in tandem models.
