Our first big trip was a success!

We were very pleased with how our TT handled from VA to MO and back. If we kept it at 65, we averaged 8.5 miles to the gallon, and felt very comfortable handling the hills with the superduty tranny cooler added to the van. Overall, what a great trip and we can't wait to go again. Probably the next edition will be an alarm set up for temperature monitoring for the dogs come summertime. They got quite used to getting in the "house" each day when done showing and each dog had plenty of room to sleep at night. Did not have much time for cooking, it was a busy show, but overall, we saved about 300.00 from our usual trip expenses. Being able to break up the driving and sleep at walmarts made this trip incredibly relaxing for both us and the dogs.

A little dirty, but happy to be home.
