I've never been much for RVs or trailers... they don't get to the places I like to camp. The downside is that my camper is short on both space and luxuries.

Of course I have several different "campers" for various situations. Here is my most fancy ultralight "camper" in Wrangell-St. Elias NP.

That fits my budget pretty well. Travel trailers and RVs are nice, and I'd love to have one, but they're pricey. Never mind that I have a non-negotiable demand in a tow rig that eliminates at least 95% of those on the market.

Man Rick, I just had my Chevy dealer install a new Borla Exhaust......totally different truck now, I freakin love it man....
I think the wife will be ok with it too. She didn't like the idea, but I think she was thinking that it would sound like glass packs or just super loud and annoying.
This is really nice though, a deep rumble and no droaning at all. I'll get up a video a bit later

Nice choice!! I've got the Carven brand, Progressive Series on my Ram. I've always been a "install a different exhaust and wheel/tire package" on all my vehicles kind of person. Exhaust really wakes it up!! A couple of my buddies at work have Borla's on their trucks and not only do they sound great, but they hold up to the harsh winters we have up here as well.

No drone is huge. I have a little bit sometimes when I'm going 70-73mph, other than that no problems. I bet that exhaust is going to RIPPPPPPP when you're pulling that camper uphill :cool: :D
