Thank you all!
Donna and Bob, yes I think I will go the route. I would rather not have stuff hanging over the tailgate. Going to have to get one of those truck steps that hang over the wheel...little old short me can't even see into the bed!
Dave, may or may not see you at Triple T - I sold my little egg. I will for sure see you in Bandera! As soon as my new baby gets here, you are certainly welcome to come see anytime!
