    i was in Tampa sat. and saw at a apartment complex that was being mowed and the guys had 2 black ford excursions with 2 black 40-50' Hallmark trailers. they must make a lot of cash for having that. anyone ever see anything like it before.

    Then is was a 12'-16' maybe a 20' and that is a very common size and siight in this business so nothing special about it. As to 40'-50' that is what length Tractor Trailers are.... ;)

    40'-50' is FREAKING HUGE :dizzy: theres no way in hell an excursion could pull that with a conventional hitch setup, must have been 20-25 feet at most :cool:

    So because they had Excursions means they are making a lot of money???

    Ever see the commercial with the guy that is showing off his house, car, inground pool, etc. and he says " and how do I afford it all? I'm in debt up to my eyeballs!".
    Not sure what the commercial is even for, but his words would describe a lot of LCO's.

    Hi gogetter,

    Very good point.

    Sam Walton used to drive in his beat up pickup truck even when he was a millionaire. You can read about him in his book Made in America. Great story.

    One of my friends response to that would be "fake it till you make it!"

    don't you know how much cocaine you can hual in those hualmark's.
    you are not questioned about visiting alot of homes each day?
    but the $5000.00 mowing might spark some interest :)
