After eight months on the road, we knew that we needed to upgrade to a truck that could haul our 7,000 pound trailer. Our Toyota Tacoma could pull 6,500 pounds max. We were pushing his limits, as he struggled up and over many passes at maybe 20 mph. In January of 2020, with a heavy heart, we traded in our beloved Tacoma for a 2018 Chevy 3500 HD Silverado.
After roughly 15 months on the road full time, I agreed to continue this journey for another two years. The only caveat was to find a bigger rig that would give us a little more living space. In January of 2020, we purchased a 2020 Columbus Compass Fifth Wheel.
