Had to hook up, uncover and load up on a moments notice (24hrs) for an 1850 mile trip one way, Tennessee to Nevada. Bad news...family medical issue, good news...got to add six state stickers to the map. Now we don't look like recruits in the campground.

First run also for the new Trailair pin box mechanism. If you have a solid box on your fifth wheel, ride with someone who has a Trailair and watch the camper articulate as you cross bridges and pot holes. Neck and shoulder pain reduced not the mention the lack of migration inside the camper. Things pretty much stayed where I put them.

Hey Oklahoma and New Mexico...you should formulate a Dept of Transportation entity and hire people to improve the road surface out there, or do you own stock in Trailair?

Remembering what it was like camping at the Amana Colonies RV Park and High-Speed Wind Tunnel Facilityģ last year, Kelly has found some suitable attire for sitting around the campfire.

Tim

p.s. By the way, did anyone happen to notice if I pulled out and left my Can Cooker back there? I cannot find the damn thing ANYWHERE. I needed it last weekend and practically dismantled the Roo looking for it. Amana was the last time I used it, so I can only imagine that I ran off and left it behind.

Yep. Just one. Unlike some, I don't use number of slides to compensate for... er... lets just call it 'deficiencies of a certain stature'.

What are you up to now. 6, 7 slides on your rig?

Can Cooker? I thought it was an oil catch pan. Yea you ran over on the way out, probably.
