HDT page


Donna and our Volvo on a shopping trip.

For years I have been pondering traveling with a toyhauler. That interest increased last year when I found out about using an HDT (heavy duty truck...Class 8) to pull the toyhauler. This past fall on our Niagra Falls motorcycle trip we decided to make it happen. It would have been nice to spend more time in the places we traveled through. We'll start with the truck and eventually get a large toyhauler.
