Met my sister in MT. They pulled it down from AK. It arrived in very good condition for it's age (it's a 2000). This is the longest trip for it, this trip will probaly put more miles on it than all previous together! We spent several hours going through it. My BIW dismounted the trailer in the local Wal-Mart parking lot. My wife backed our truck up into a position to check hitch/pin height for possible adj., not needed. Installed the pullrite capture plate with no problem. Backed it up, popped the pin capture, small tug fwd to test.done.
Left MT, it was raining, then snow and high wind, same into SD. Warmed up when we got into lower elev. and stopped raining. Currently running air springs @20psi up from 15 when running empty.
More later.

I had a long tale......but the computer just dumped it! Haven't down-loaded the cameras yet.......and I don't have on-line storage.
But lunch is over and I have to go.

Congratulations! Always enjoy looking at people's trailers. It even my habit in campgrounds, I'll make at least a couple loops a day looking.
