Day 242: T minus 1 day to new RV

The fifth wheel hitch arrived from Amazon on Friday, so today was the day to install it as we are picking up the new RV tomorrow.  The rails have to be very carefully positioned in the bed and holes are then drilled through the bed:

  1. Indeed. I’m on the road by 5am every day. Pretty crazy, but not as crazy as drilling holes int the bed of a brand new truck :)
