Our New Truck!

We have a new truck to tow our trailer. It's a 2010 Nissan Titan King Cab SE, with a 5.6 liter V8 engine. It has only 19,000 miles on it - the previous owner was an employee of the dealership who drove it to work and had only a 10-mile round trip commute. He got transferred to Palm Desert, so he traded it in for a sedan only 2 days ago. I saw the listing yesterday on autotrader.com, called to make an appointment, and we went down today. We were able to get a fairly decent trade-in amount on our very well-used Dodge Ram (it had 128,000 miles on it), along with a 2.5% interest rate.

It's in outstanding shape - seems brand new.  It already has the towing package, and Don's got an appointment next week with his RV repair guy Jeff to put the brake in. We'll be taking the truck and trailer to Quartzite in 2 weeks, so we get to break it in pretty quickly!
