Alden, I'm sorry to hear about your shop! Sounds like you are taking it in stride. I glad you have the trailer to look forward to.

Pics in the "Alden Miller" members gallery. You can see the fire and the new trailer.

I got some little stuff for the trailer today (sewer hose, fresh water hose, etc.). My wife and I were putting stuff away tonight and exploring all the different cabinets and how things worked. Kind of fun!

My first repair is under way (new crank for the antenna). I picked up the older style handle today but once I took the one of the trailer I found it was the newer style. No problem, I'll exchange it tomorrow and get a water pressure regulator for the water hook up while I'm at it.

So sorry to hear of your shop and trailer loss, but you are going to LOVE your 34'! We went from a 1977 23' Safari, to a 72 31' Sovereign, to an '86 34' Ltd, and have used the earlier trailers very little since because the 34' is so comfortable. In fact we sold the Sovereign because we knew we'd never take it out as long as the 34' is available; they really duplicate each other. Our shorties are for boondocking, shorter trips, places with shorter parking sites.

We have to back the 34' in our driveway over a sharp dip (when our road was paved, they raised the surface several inches, creating the dip) between where the ditch runs under the driveway, and it works just fine: a little practice is all you need. So far we have kept our monster out of the ditch. Enjoy your new 34'!
