We just signed the papers on a Surveyor SV235RS. We show dogs, and the floor plan is going to work well for our 8 (yes, count'em, 8) shelties. We attend quite a few shows, and are looking forward to staying on the grounds at the dog show with a "real" trailer. The one we have been using is a vintage 1968, eight foot long, Kelstar. She's tiny, but she worked. That is, until my 16 yr. old twin boys hit 6 feet tall. They don't fit anymore
. I'm really excited to use our new (and thank God, bigger trailer), but a little apprehensive. I've never towed anything this big before. We will be towing it with our '97 Ford E-150 van. He's an oldie, but gently used, and very well cared for and maintained. Any hints for a newbie Surveyor owner.
