Did you make it home safely? Looks road worthy from a distance...

So yes we did make it home safely. She towed like a dream. Well. Until we unhitched and opened her up. A couple of bulkhead cabinets shook loose and plastic broke off but we didn't kill anyone and she is happy. Sorry I don't have better pictures but this is her current resting spot next to her sister that's a 1972 ambassador 29' and half a mile away from her extended family of newborns. She is home and as I said before is gonna need a change of clothes. Thanks everyone for their suggestions and support. Now the fun begins!!!!

I'll have to talk to him. They probably don't have parts for me but weights and balances from an expert would be good to take advantage of.
