Howdy, my wife and i just purchased a 99 Freightliner shorty. it has the 3126 cat motor and only 134K miles. We are excited to begin this journey. Our youngest has just started college, so we are facing the empty nest and needing a project. My wife has just retired from the Fed gov. and i'm a mechanic at a nasty chemical plant. Look forward to getting to know everyone and learn about this undertaking.

Sounds like the prefect time to hit the road.



Smaller rigs allow for more adventurous destinations... Welcome to the party!!!
