Well, I have to tell you, the cost out there is just too much for my blood although I'd sure enjoy being around you'all and playing in the offroad areas that you enjoy. Here in OK there isn't much to do unless its a planned private type of offroad deal, thats why we enjoy going to Colorado and NM where we can go and play.

Hard to believe that its been that long since I jumped on here, then flew out to Phoenix to look at WW's, remember that year talking about toyhaulers but couldn't find any info on them, now look, They're everywhere! Had the first one out here for a while, everyone couldn't believe it. Still get a kick when I go to the lake and take the Jeep and everyone looks when we unload. Nothing like drawing a crowd!

Man...flew to Phoenix to look at 'em? Where were you when you did that?

And yes...down here between LA and Glamis on I10, there's got to be hundreds I pass on my home on Friday (sometimes even Thursday's and wow- Thanksgiving must be 1000's).

Since you've been looking at them though, I'd think there's quite the difference between 'those' days and now...not that I would equate any of them to an Alfa, but they are pretty plush now. I'd also think most of 'em were just a haul trailer with windows, huh?

You know, I just converted a friend of ours that was deadset on a conventional (he actually bought our first '77 HR 28'). They always seem to come up with the same argument- "I just gotta have the bed of my truck to haul 'stuff'". But when they understand that the 8 feet you would use to haul with, now has a bedroom in that 8 feet, and you still get the 8 feet on the trailer- but now with a built-in ramp! It really isn't rocket science if you have any toys you wanna bring witcha!

You should have seen the looks I got when I pulled mine around the U.S. back in 1998. They were popular on the west coast, but once I got over the rockies, you would have though I was pulling a space ship. I believe that I saw only one other TH the whole trip back east. Every night I had someone or a crowd of people wanting me to "open that thang up".

It was a trip!!!

The first time I pulled to New Mexico we stopped in Tucumcarie for the night and unloaded the Jeep so we could sleep all 6 of us. The next morning we had a group of people sitting there when I went out and asked if they could stay and watch us load, what a hoot! I bet we had 20 people watching me load the jeep in with the winch. Every time I go to a Corvette event they all have to come over and take a tour of the trailer, its still a riot.
