Good Morning, Rail, sorry no tie downs, I should have, I always tell guys it doesn't matter inside or not tie it down. Hey those Toters is where I got the inspiration for mine, (mines on a smaller scale) studying them made me think I would never buy a class A

Hey rail, nice I like it but there aren't many windows. That is a deal breaker for me.

Nice hitch Terry, glad that you got it early, that is a big worry off your shoulders.
Rail, nice Mh, that looks like it might be one of the circle track rigs, could have a couple hundred thousand miles on it. Might be why it is sooo cheap.
Just saying,
Frank

Avis car rental said I broke their record for amount of miles driven in the time I had the car , their computer wouldn't accept the mileage they had to do it by hand, glad it was an unlimited mileage rental . I didn't tell them I was back yesterday .

No carbon left in that one.
Glad you had a safe trip.

Good Morning, Bill, that ole Chevy (2015) did a good job, I was going to check under the hood, I think it was a V8, My son has the Buick version and his is a V8.

Equinox's come with 4's or 6's. Mine has a 4 and moves along fine enough for me. I'd likely get in trouble with a 6

Love mine, very comfortable on long rides, been back and forth to FL a number of times in mine and always do it in 24 hours or so. Great vehicle IMO.

Good Afternoon, Carl, I can tell you without cruise control I would have been in serious trouble , it was very comfortable and drove real nice, with my back and legs most of the time I'm in pain in a few hrs, in this one none at all the whole trip . I might have to buy one. Gordon, I spent the day figuring my parts list and planning the hitch/body build, its was 56* here today and they claim the next week is above average, will be nice I hope. Here is some pics of the planning stages. This is where it will sit. The one pic is of the mounting leg, I will cut mount holes in the steel plate and pin it so it can come off.
