I've been getting our new Class C motorhome ready for some long trips in 2019, and finally have a dinghy. At first, I was planning on towing our 2016 F150 crew cab 4x4 (11k miles). After discussion, the F150 is just too heavy.

I purchased a 2005 Jeep Wrangler (2-door) with 44k miles. It's in Salt Lake City, UT ... I'm flying out 1 way on Jan 19 to pick her up and drive her home.

This fits well with our plans for a trip to Colorado this summer, and Utah in 2020 ('20 plans could change). Jeep will be fun on some trails.

It's our 3rd Jeep, but 1st time using one as a toad.

Oh, forgot to mention: The 2016 F150 is posted locally (Peoria IL) for sale since I'm not really going to use it or need it!

Wise move for smaller and lighter Jeep.
