What does DW stand for? Obviously something to go with "Wife". I'm just not hip on all the abreviations peope use. I thought I only had to learn a new language with my 12 year old daughter LOL.

It stands for "Dear Wife." DH is for "Dear Husband." BTW stands for "By The Way." That'd all I can think of now, LOL

I've been retired since sept. I can definitely get used to this. Hard to talk about with working stiffs, everybody's jealous. Huge change though. still can't believe it.

We are 65 years young. We have a '06 Itasca Sunova 34A, coupled to a '09 Trailer Toad which pulls our '03 20 1/2 ft SouthWest enclosed trailer. In the trailer are '08 Smart for Two Passion and a '06 GL1800 Goldwing with a Hannigan TriCar conversion. Over all length of this set up in 61 ft, and with the trailer we still have room for tools etc. It is heavy tipping the scales at just over 10,000 lbs, but the the Trailer Toad you do not feel the weight and I still get pretty good gas mileage of 7 mpg.

Edit: For short trips we use a Demco Tow Dolly and a '07 Toyota Prius. Since the Prius gets over 48 mpg and the MH get 7 does that mean I am getting 20+ miles to the gallon with it in tow?

I believe Winnie's gas coaches come with 5k towing capacity, maybe 6k. What did you have to have done to safely tow "just over 10,000" ? ...and how does that load impact the GVWR ?
