Ford 250 pick up Alamo

We arrived at MIA on Friday having booked a standard SUV with VH through Alamo, we checked in on line so straight to the garage with no hard sell. Asked what was available and if any pick ups we were shown a couple of Nissan but all abit small. Asked if anything bigger we were shown a Dodge 150 or a Ford 250 Super Duty we took the latter for no extra charge.

OH is in his element and couldn't believe his luck it's massive 6 litre and he loves it, somehow I think he's not going to want to give it back 😄😄😄

Wow my OH would love this. We are definitely asking at MCO whether any pick ups are available even if we have to pay a bit extra to upgrade. He would love an F150 but a 250 would be amazing!

I know, we said this last time we were out. Our Ranger looks big here but is small out there. Just imagine having to park the 250 at Tesco!

So we've been here a week and loving the truck or the beast as I have nick named it. I was ademant I would'nt be driving it but after a little drive in the car park I 've been out on the open road and love it.

Good job we're not driving too far on this trip as with a 6.5 litre engine it's a gas guzzler but at $2.49 a gallon its not too bad. Would'nt like to fill it back home though 😊😊.

Just got back had an Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 V8 HEMI and loved it wish I could have it over here.

Had only booked a mid size suv but non in the row so was offered a standard but nothing amazing that I liked my dad took a Ford Edge titanium in black with leather very nice, I asked if any pick up trucks (I knew their where but they were in the premium suv line)

After a bit of back and forth I got to pick one
