I have a question for those of you who have traded in a toad. Does the attached base plate add or subtract from the trade in value? I assume you don't have them removed first, right?

Not that I would ever trade Smarty off. She's ours for life. Just curious. Talk about cherry -- my 2012 has only 13,500 miles on the odometer. Another 20K on the tires, but those don't count against us. And her tiny little shoes are cheap to replace.

Mel,

When are you gonna list Bow, in all her glory, in your signature line? To all RVMs -- it really helps our failing memories when you list your rainbow rider at the bottom of all your posts. IRV2 will do it for you automatically if you will go to: USER CP --> edit signature then put in all the info. Remember to scroll all the way to the bottom of that page and click on SAVE CHANGES.

If you need help, ask Sarah W, she's the expert here.

<Sorry Sarah>

Funny, Barb, but when I read the post I just put up in response to your request that I include Bow in my signature line, there it is. Did you read the entire line?

Steve, could this lead to another chapter in MRLG? "The Case of the Broken Transmission: Dwayne's Transfer to the Fort Jeep Outpost"

Colleen, it's about an hour and a half from Van Horn to Davis Mountains State Park. I read some reviews on Trip Advisor, so now I'm even more jazzed to get there!

We have no real plans except to see this great country up close, meet interesting people who like us have no particular agendas and respect all pints of views. Apart from the usual 'must sees' we have no travel plans because after all The Journey is our Destination

Barry and Pat
A mighty WELCOME to you guys!! Seeing our great country is a beautiful goal and one you will enjoy. When you get to Idaho, look us up.

That looks like a great Nuvi. It even lets you change the angle of the view and review what was recorded. We were thinking about getting the RV 760LMT. Now with what everyone has said about having a cam...I may have to re-think it. Too bad they didn't have one that did both the RV info w/cg and the cam. The 760 you can get with a back up camera which would help us. Decisions decisions...

You could be right steve but I'll never haul 6k on a trailer behind it again.

Just whisper that way only I can read it. :lol:
