RE: traveling to Maine

As to "parkways", I always assume trailers are not allowed, unless I know specifically otherwise. You are correct if a road is called a parkway do not travel it, not because of the hefty ticket you will receive but some parkways have low clearance for the overpasses.

RE: Tow Vehicle for Large Family

I tow with a 04 Excursion V-10. I have 373 gears, but I believe there was an option for a different gear ratio that would push the tow limit to 11,000lbs. I suggest looking real hard at the gas excursions, they will be cheaper to buy and you will not need to bullet proof them.

RE: Do we need to remove the TV for winter storage?

I have not removed my flat screen TV since from my TT I bought it in 2010 and it has been working just fine.

RE: WD bar storage ideas or mods?

In my front pass through storage I placed some hooks that I simply slide my wd bars onto and leave them there until I need to hitch up again, this way they can be secured as well as kept out of the weather and off the ground.

RE: Excursion as tow vehicle?

My 2004 V10 Ex has taken us from Florida to Maine without issue. I did add a rear sway bar that was beefier than the factory one. My TT weighs around 9200lbs when loaded to camp. I do have E rated tires and installed new shocks when I bought it in 2009. I opted for the Roadmaster Active Suspansion to shore up the Ex's soft rear instead of airbags. I mainly use the Ex to tow and average 7.5 - 8 MPG. I would go with 1200lb - 1400lb bars.
