Wow, I'm, stunned, never saw that coming. I guess the super singles project is now on hold? Best of luck with the DP....

Just out of curiosity, what prompted you to give up the trailer in favor of the Hydralift and towing the Mini?

Super singles on hold for now.

We will keep the trailer but store it for now, kind of like a storage garage for some toys. We want to keep the overall length short. The hydralift gives us some more options.

Good question, we usually said to ourselves when we got into a tight spot or one that needed 4x4 to access,"couldn't of got in here with a motorhome". I think I can count about a dozen spots in the last year and a half. Having said that though, within a half of mile or so of our socalled "Premier Spots" were spots we could have gotten into with a smaller motorhome.

Glad to know that one of those 12 is where we camped with you two:

I suppose there was probably a spot within a few miles anyway of where we were where you could get the new rig (though it sure was muddy driving that road on the way out...)

Having said that.....this doesn't surprise me at all.....based on your posts it was only a question of time before you went to something either bigger or more expensive, or both! I do appreciate your contributions to the forum and hope you do continue to participate from time to time. Let us know when you are rolling through our state again.

Last comment: How am I ever going to repay your tow out of the mud now? I could dangle my GMC off a cliff and still not pull that beast you just bought!

Jim and Sue
Let me add my congrats. You will be a lot more comfortable full timing in that rig.
All we ask is that you educate the class A folks that TCers are great people and not trash.
