After taking a wine tour the trend is for wineries to use screw on caps. They said the cork tends to change the taste of the wines. Price of cork also may have a influence also to using caps. Later RJD

Didn't know that. Thanks. I like boxed wines for camping. Lots of wine in very little space, and the plastic bladder keeps air out. No need for cork or screw cap.

I can’t see how. The receiver on the back of the 5ver is very small - bike rack small. There is also a car on the other side, so I think maybe some visitors????

While it has 'some cool factor' it looks like the siding is buckling and I'm just not sold on those white walls.

But hey... to each their own.

The cool factor would be through the roof if this was the tow vehicle.

Thunderbird knew that in the early 1960s. Terrible but $0.79 a quart.

Dry bath and dual axels... very nice. Now if it were at least 40' long, 2 ACs, minimum 4 slides, bigger shower, king bed, and much more I could get interested in the next one. 29' for 2 people just not going to work for me.

I don't think you could seriously call it a "retro" if it met all your requirements!

X 2 on the box wine takes up less space also. Later RJD

Well, yes and no...................................


As schoolchildren, we learn that the earth is moving about our sun in a very nearly circular orbit. It covers this route at a speed of nearly 30 kilometers per second, or 67,000 miles per hour. In addition, our solar system--Earth and all--whirls around the center of our galaxy at some 220 kilometers per second, or 490,000 miles per hour. As we consider increasingly large size scales, the speeds involved become absolutely huge!

The galaxies in our neighborhood are also rushing at a speed of nearly 1,000 kilometers per second towards a structure called the Great Attractor, a region of space roughly 150 million light-years (one light year is about six trillion miles) away from us. This Great Attractor, having a mass 100 quadrillion times greater than our sun and span of 500 million light-years, is made of both the visible matter that we can see along with the so-called dark matter that we cannot see.

I was merely referring to the design, not the cosmic order of things.
