I’m the weirdo who actually likes where they think they are going with the looks, (they aren’t there yet,) but I have issues/questions to share.
Does the rear door have a foot tall wing projecting over a foot and a half off the end of it? That swoopy part, over the bed… How am I supposed to be able to use the knee of the foot propped on the running board to hold it open while struggling to get my Portuguese saddle in through it while avoiding a (nother) concussion when a stirrup catches the inside arm rest and swings that fancy wing thing into my head? Lordy. My husband would come out and find me unconscious, laying in the drive, with a saddle on me, and a trail of fire ants trying to cart me off. Barring the weapo, er, wing on the back door, it still doesn’t look big enough to wrestle 4 or or five 50lb bags of feed through. Load or unload. I’m even worse left knee’d.
The bed, is it low enough that my gooseneck trailer isn’t going to travel looking like it’s always going uphill? Needs to be level. Don’t need to hear horses scrambling for footing. And the sides, how tall are the walls? If I try to back, and need to come perilously close to jackknife territory, will the hitch supports scrape along the top of the bed? Currently with my Betty I have about a foot space.
Is that a grab bar jutting out of the back of the cab? A super tiny roll bar? Or a can opener for the bow of my trailer…. I don’t know how I feel about it. Is it useful? Can I run a rope through it and use that as a pully-ish to drag a piano into the bed? What about a refrigerator? What about,… a 1,000 lb compressed alfalfa bale? What about a calf? What about a Smart Car? A trampoline? A swing set? Can I use it as an anchor point to strap stuff to? Because I absolutely will!
Thanks for the speshul trim to fake a skinny waist. Lord forbid my truck look fat. I like to fake the other truck owners into thinking their truck can beat my truck up. Like hustling pool. Can we also get some dainty wheels for it too? Maybe some frilly rims? A pink paint scheme? In case no one realizes, this paragraph is complete sarcasm. I want my truck to be one solid color, from bumper to bumper, that color being black. It needs to look like it can survive the job I need it to do; haul my 3 horse warmblood slant gooseneck, haul camping gear through swamps and sugar sand, and haul my girl army of granddaughters. However, I would not say no to bumper to bumper plum overlaid with a purple to teal flip flop. Just sayin.
Someone mentioned above, how can we see out of it? Will we have to rely on the curb feelers or whatever they’re called, to keep centered in the lane? Will that also keep the trailer centered? Are there bigger mirrors? Or just better tech.
I desperately want one!!!! Have since I had a hint that there would be one. But I am hell on trucks. And that looks very breakable. But I tell you what, I’m willing to sacrifice. Give me one and I will, at my cost, have a gooseneck ball installed in the bed, boss up the rear end suspension, maybe some airbags even, for the horses’ comfort, mind you, and then abuse the ever lovin dog snot outta it, and report back. No need to pay me. I’ll do it out of the goodness of my heart. Just for y’all.
Edited to add, obs I’m dragging the concept version. I see there’s a boring version too. Why isn’t there a compromise between boring but very useful and innovative but ridiculous?
