Bambi is in the House!!!

After a grueling 16 hour day, Bambi is out there lookin' good! Oh, the price of love...

Many thanks to Maurice for pointing me to the McKesh mirrors. Boy, I could see everything for miles!!

Never having towed (yikes!) the first 50 miles were TENSE! But it got much better. The owners manual for my truck says not to go over 50 miles an hour the first 500 miles of towing, so it was slow going. Kinda nice though, watching all the maniacs speed by and seeing my girl hangin' on out back...

So thankful to have it and for all the great advice I've have recieved along the way. The delivery process was smooth because I had downloaded the owners manual and read it twice before I went...

Hope to have pictures up soon..

Congrats Paul! I know how you must feel!

Make sure you check the torque on the coaches lug nuts. They tend to loosen a bit for the first few trips.

Congratulations, Paul! Glad the McKesh suggestion helped. It won't be long before you're completely at easy towing it.
