Thanks Ron. I have found that forum. Wish it wasn't a Yahoo Group forum. They're not the easiest format to use, but there's some decent information there.

I still haven't taken delivery of the Seneca because it's an out of state delivery. Waiting on the Cal DMV to get the paperwork done so the dealer can deliver it to Oregon. If it wasn't a tax issue, I'd just take delivery there. Hopefully, next week!

I don't think so. Haven't heard anything good come from towing a car backwards on a dolly. Maybe, though.


EDIT: Just checked the manual and towing on a dolly with the rear wheels is a possibility. Have to look into this as it's likely the cheapest option for us! Thanks!

I've decided NOT to go the dolly route with the nose down. While do-able, it just seems more of a pita than worth it. Probably just look around for a beater that I can flat tow. With any luck, I'll find one that is already equipped as a toad that fits the bill.

Good luck! Randomly there were a couple in my area recently. A honda crv and a honda civic. Both in the $4-6k range

CarlAda, I just traded my o8 hd gs Seneca for another rv and am missing the Seneca already. My SD had only 21ooo and was in very good condition with new tires and batteries. My fuel mileage was not all that great (6-9 at the most) but we were not counting. I had just installed Michelins all around as the originals were showing weathering signs. Also, new house batteries solved some elec. problems I was having. Nothing just small stuff like old battery's wouldn't hold a charge as long as I thought they should.

To improve the ride and handling I installed front swaybar and rear helper spring (by Henderson). Had Safety Steer installed and Bilstein (sp) all around. After a complete alignment it drove like a sports car.

It handled the hills of Or. and UT. and NM. with only a little help from me on the fuel. The exhaust break was great for those 6-7 % long down hill grades West and East of Denver.

My Toad was a Jeep Wrangler with a break Buddy. Wouldn't be caught without one.

I never worked the motor at acceleration during takeoff and always gave myself plenty, plenty distance for stopping. It drove sporty but stopped trucky.

My sweet spot for cruise was 61-63 mph. I know, I know but I had to just let them just pass me by. Never wanted to abuse that engine or xmission.

Plenty of noise in cockpit but we got use after a fashion.

If tires are original they are at the end or beyond their service life. My last set set me back over 3 grand. Check the "year made" date on the tires. If the sidewalls have any signs of checking be very careful as they will be on their last leg.

The inside of your rig is almost the same as mine was except I had a free standing dinette table. Would have rather have had the booth.

Beautiful rig.
