Love all these messages from ladies. My first trip with my 28' motor home, and 2-horse trailer with dressing room, I was going up a mountain, and it felt SO BIG TO ME. This UPS tractor-trailer pulling TWO trailers, passed me, and a woman was driving it. I said, "if she can drive that, I can drive this." And I did, and do. Only got it wrapped around gas pumps once in 11 years...a lot of backing up, pulling up, etc. to get going again.

I love this post!!!!! I just sold (to my parents, keeping it the family!!!!) my most favorite vehilce EVER 2008 Chevy 2500 Duramax with the Allison trans!!! I LOVE THAT TRUCK!!!!!! Yes men love women who drive trucks, why I have no idea! They especially love women who can haul a trailer...why I have no idea! "It's hot" I still don't get it!! My 2 favorite situations driving a big truck as a woman are as follows...1.) Whilst driving down the highway I see in my rearview, a car driven by a girl FLYING up next to me. The driver slows down as soon as they're in line with my truck and I look over, the driver sees I'm a girl and you can actually SEE the disappointment on her face!!!!! Then she just gets back into line with traffic. HAHAHA!!! 2.) Once again on the highway....I pass another big truck. I casually glance over and the driver (a man) and I make eye contact as I pass. All of a sudden he FLOORS it and passes me while still in the slow lane! Really?!! Come on!!!!!

Love this thread! Hell I get more looks when I'm driving my truck than when I used to walk my puppy. Who knew a 3/4 ton Chevy was such a man magnet? I guess they think it's hot.

A couple made me stop and loaded it for me, said there was no way I should be picking up feed bags as big as me.

I dunno who they thought was going to be unloading the feed.....
I used to have the same truck, but now I have a Ram.
And we are the same size and folks stop and stare at me too when I'm slinging feed bags around, although it must be having the kids along that makes people more prone to help you.
I don't usually take my son to any of the feeds stores I go to and folks just stare at me while I wait in line with a 50lb bag of feed hanging over my shoulder. And they never offer to help load when I have a flat cart full of feed.
Hmmmm.... *scratches head*
Maybe I should take the kiddo along more often....

I don't care how sexy a big truck is, it's a pain in the arse to park and if you are staying in a hotel with underground parking, chances are you have to find some place else to park. The only time I use the lifted diesel is if I have a horse trailer behind it.

:) leave it to waresbear. They aren't that hard to park. I usually park in the back of the lot anyway. Gets my booty some extra exercise. At the feed store i just back up to the loading area, go in and pay, and the guys at the feed store usually load the truck with whatever i got. none of this standing in line with a 50lb bag business. Lol. :) also, I don't think we have anything with underground parking for 100 miles. To each her own :)

The problem with mine is that it doesnt fit through a mcDonalds drive through (being 14ft tall).
