    Hello and welcome!! A lot of good stuff comes up for auction at barstow and camp french. If one of these auction sites is close to you it would be easy to inspect and recover a purchase.

    thanks for all the input guys! luckily living in menifee its not to overcrowded yet, and i live on 2 acres where we have all kinds of motorhomes and crap just sittin around, so storage is not an issue. most likely im going to be moving to anza in a year or 2. gotta get out of the city! i dont care about going 55 or slower haha people just have to deal with it. im not shure what id want to do with reg. i want to use the truck to tow my ford ranger and dirt bikes etc to the desert, so i dont think i want a hist. veh. reg??? also im most likely looking to buy from a private party. i dont want anything to do with auctions...
    so if anyone in the area has a truck for sale, i would be willing to check it out. thanks again for the input!!

    If you want to haul things other than camping gear you will need regular plates and will be subject to weight fees. Probably close to a grand a year with the new higher fees vs less than a hundred with historical. You will certainly need a cdl useing a Deuce to haul as well. 100dollarman ( Mark ) has quite a few to choose from and he "Bobs" them as well. His shop is out in Lucerne Valley and he will be at the campout in October

    what are the chances of getting pulled over if towing with hist. plates? ill have to ask my mom about the whole weight fee thing, she deals with all our work trucks, which are all ca 20 or ca 26 registered weight..
    ive heard about the 100dollar man. im looking for a driver in decent shape. i can fix anything but am very lazy sometimes haha
    i think bobbed deuces look cool but personally i could never do that to one. its like cutting one of your feet off, but thats just my opinion

    Towing anything but an M105 or other MV trailer with historical plates will greatly increase your chance of getting pulled over, especially by CHP. I'm not a fan of bobbed trucks myself but you wont need a cdl and can haul/ tow just about anything you want legally with a bobbed truck . Food for thought.

    i guess CDL requirements very from state to state. in Bama my buddies and i drive the M818 around without a CDL and it ways more than a deuce. on the other hand when the M820s arrive i may need to grab my class A. 25,800 is the curb weight and has over 41,000 for its GVWR.

    Btw, welcome to the site! sorry i missied the welcome earlier

    Mike, just make sure you preview the truck first. GL Barstow does get it's fair share of good trucks, but they can get a dog too.

I will make you a great deal on one. But even if you dont buy from me, you are more than welcome to come check them out and learn about them a bit. We have several other MV trucks and trailers also.
