Bought It For The Long Haul
We have a camper top on this dually with a long bed. Camped out in it hundreds of times and four-wheeled it on the beach. We've towed a 40ft Fifth Wheel all over the country.
My Favorite Dually
I got my 1997 Chevy red crew cab dually a few years ago. The 454 has a lot of power, but not so great on gas, on average I get 8-12 mpg. Usually ends up being about 10. Rides a little rough, but it's a 1 ton. Fits 5 very comfortably. I have the bucket seats up front. Love driving it to Las Vegas, can handle a lot of weight. Just drinks a lot of gas. Pro's, lots of power, leather seats are comfortable, roomy, reliable, does what you want it to Con's, mpg, and some parts on it are expensive, hard to fit in a drive thru, and won't fit in most carwashes. Overall I would recommend this truck.
