Security

As a safety precaution, even when we are not going anywhere, I have rigged up a light that shines on the RV all night long sitting in our drivewway, plus we have installed a safety chaing around the axles to a large tree...so far we have not had any problems..think about it..

Thanks Bob. There was just too many of you guys with the new SuperDutys in Goshen this year so I didn't want to feel left out next summer.

Traded our '08 F250 V10 for an '08 F350 V10 with an 8' bed so we can start hauling the golf cart. Took a test tow today before our first trip next weekend with the new TV.

So sorry about the news.

It would be ugly but what about using one of the box trucks from U-Haul? Back when I was borrowing my sister's Yukon to tow with I was seeking back up options and while getting her SUV ready for towing the U-Haul guy said I could always rent the box truck to tow my trailer.

Other than U-Haul I only found one other place that would rent a pickup truck that allow towing (within very restricted limits) and it was pretty pricy.
