Our first short trip

We finally made our first trip in our Argosy last month. We spent the weekend on South Padre Island and had a blast. There were no real hiccups but we did loose a few rivets along the way. Fortunately I had my rivet gun and cordless drill on board as recommended by forum members. For now we must keep our trips local until I upgrade my tow vehicle. Still we shall make the most of what's around us.

Your tow vehicle looks just fine to me. What upgrade do you have in mind?

Thanks but this is a 2005 GMC Canyon. It pulls the trailer fine when it is empty but it struggles when the trailer is stocked with supplies and water. We were loaded down with a generator, extra water, extra fuel, and lots of beer. I used to have a 3/4 ton Dodge with a diesel engine but it was stolen shortly after I moved down here. I would like to finally replace it this coming year if I can swing the payments. Here is a picture of my dodge. I sure miss it. I'm not looking to get crazy with the next one. I'd be happy with a stock truck with enough power to pull the Argosy anywhere we decide to take it. Staying in budget will be difficult.
