You will have a great time in it. It looks great. Get some plastic or wood to put under the tires while in storage to keep moisture from the rubber.

Have fun.

Nice rig; enjoy. It is amazing the quick transition from Starship Enterprize to Volkswagen Rabbit.

They will install everything I need to tow, a base plate, Invisabrake system, tow bar, and any wiring required. Yes, it is a 2012 Chevy Equinox, both the FWD and AWD is towable four down. Only the FWD can be dollied. Read your owners manual, page 10-something. It gives specific procedures to follow.

As for the storm damage somebody else asked about, we got nothing here in east Alabama. Most of the storms that come in from the gulf hook right around us. Haven't heard of any contaminated fuel.

You'll love the A over the fifth wheel, I never looked backed. I love my set up time over the 5er. I've had two A's and I prefer both over the 5th wheel. It all depends on your style of travel, I guess that's why they make different types of rv's, likes and dislikes. Good luck and have safe trouble free travels.

Oh Wow, that is gorgeous!
She really is a pretty thing. Thanks for the interior shots, and responding to my request.
My hope and prayer is that you spend many happy days and nights traveling wherever your heart takes you.
Thanks again.

"a base plate, Invisabrake system, tow bar, and any wiring required. Yes, it is a 2012 Chevy Equinox, both the FWD and AWD is towable four down" this is the same as a 2012 GMC Terrain 6 cyl all wheel drive which we have and installed exactly what you are installing they kept the Rig and the car three days and emptied my wallet when we returned to pick them up but in our travels we know all was installed correctly. We down graded to a smaller SUV so we could easily tow it. Nice Rig good color enjoy and don't be scared. if they did not installed steering assist already you should consider it while the rig is in for this other work. Steering assist made a big difference from driving like a truck to driving like a big SUV with not much wind side movement.
