Gezz, I guess I need to retire and quit driving. hahaha

Congratulations. Did you talk to the Agent about the proper insurance for your truck? If you have the trailer hooked up and are in a accident, they will deny your claim and you could be sued for damages if you're doing commerce for money. It automatically becomes commercial and you'll need commercial insurance. Just a heads up. Might as well do it NOW rather then later.

This is a great point. I recently rear-ended a women who complained of back injury and needed to be carted off by the EMT. I thought for sure I was going to be sued but the insurance covered it all and even promised to pay if I was taken to civil court.

As a side note, I tried to cover my a** if she took me to court. I secretly recorded our conversation on my cell phone where she slipped about her previous back injury a couple times.

Very good point, I think it is Nationwide offers coverage for a hobby and side work that will cover your truck and trailer, It will cost few hundred too. They have some rules too you can't have any signs on the rig, and you have to have liability coverage on the business, I think. It is worth a call to find out what you can do, you might be to young for the liability coverage in the underwriters eye.

Looks good. Dakota's are a good small truck. Just as said before be careful with insurance. Make sure you are covered.

Just curious, why AAA?
