Your truck will be too big for most roads in the city/towns. I would recommend keeping it in the States and just getting a car from the nearest Lemon Lot where PCS/ETS people are trying to sell their cars.

Agreed. When I got stationed in Hawaii, I sold my huge Texas truck and bought a little beater off the lemon lot for cheap. Sold it to a kid who just got there when I was left.

If you like your truck and are confident in your driving, then take your truck, don't buy into all the damned hype of miniature road networks....

Germany, they have a modern society and a modern culture, where the hell do you think the Autobahns are? Holy Jesus man, if you like your truck, then take it and sell it before you come back to the states!....yes, you might have the occasional difficulty parking in some areas (that will NOT be the majority of the time), all the roads aren't nearly as wide as in the states but they are wide enough to pull a farm wagon (think an overflowing hay wagon) down the street. And, it wasn't that long ago that we were running Bradley Fighting Vehicles and Abrams Tanks in the streets and villages across Germany.

Listen, if you want to take your truck, take it - don't listen to all the nay-sayers, take what you like and enjoy yourself in something you know works....buy a hoopty if you need a second vehicle but if you like your truck, take it. Hell, you stand a chance on selling it (at the end of your tour) for the US book value now!

Learn to use public transportation and the Germany's train system, you can get anywhere with out a car. But like others have posted, find the post lemon lot, you'll find a decent car for a decent price.
