Looks like if I stop by it will only be to say hello. We'll see how it ends up going with my travel plans.

I hope to be able to come for the Open House on Sunday. My partner is graduating from med school on Saturday, so lots of family will be in town, etc. but if things are calm by midday Sunday I'll head down to Glen Rose to see all the trailers and hopefully meet some fellow forum denizens in person.

I'm still thinking about it... I'm debating towing the Overlander up with a Camco Eza-lift with sway control on the wife's Jeep Grand Cherokee... Before all the dagger start flying on that topic, my own gut isn't comfortable with that given the short wheelbase on the Jeep. I'd be comfortable with it if I had a PP or a Hensley on there, as the 5.7 Hemi is plenty of power for a light vintage unit. It's the wheelbase that makes me a bit hesitant...

We'll see. I got lots of other irons to work at the moment and this one get's picked up for a good distraction.

You already towed it 1500 miles with the truck, what's a couple hundred more?

I've towed a '63 Trade Wind over 20,000 miles with a Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0L Diesel with no problems. I use an Equalizer hitch and have never experienced sway even in extreme crosswinds. Your 5.7 L has the same torque and horsepower as my diesel. I seldom drive over 65 mph.

My Dad towed a '62 Overlander with a Jeep Wagoneer in the late 60's with nary a problem.

The short wheelbase becomes more of a problem as the weight of the Airstream models increase with the newer models.

Hi GrandMaster, yes I was reading up on some of your prior posts earlier today. I wish I had the 3.0 mercedes diesel, but I couldn't justify the cost per mile versus gas based on the miles we drive in it. Maybe I'll try it this weekend... I haven't looked on our jeep, but did you have a plug in wire harness for the brake controller or did you have to hard wire it in?

Hi David,

Yeah - I figure if I do decide to bring both trailers I'll have Prim drive the F250 with Cosmo so I can deal with any issues in towing with the Jeep.... The Overlander didn't feel like anything behind the F250 when I brought it back, but boy you can sure tell when Cosmo's hooked up. Cosmo has to go on a diet and loose some weight!

Oh, that's right. Shows how good my memory is... I read every post about your new-to-you Overlander but managed to forget you'd need a sleepin' trailer in addition to the showin' trailer.

Rally attendence is a dynamic thing

Alright....it looks again like I am going to surely be there now. I was concerned about a few things, but I have worked them out.

I am taking my final exams early this year, and heading to the Republic on May 5th. Likely I'll overnight in north Dallas the 5th at TxToaster's place, and head to San Antonio the following day. This will give me time to unpack the uhaul trailer and organize my things. We think we will have Amy take leave on Friday the 12th, pull Collin out of school as well, and head up the 11th to stay either in the cabins or a nearby motel.

I will be providing leak testing, but this is really about getting the family to an Airstream event to meet a bunch of people since we are streamless. This is also a good chance to take Collin to the Dinosaur State park nearby.

Steve

ARGGGH!!!! You have to be kidding me. So Amy calls her First Sergeant this evening to say she is putting in leave for that Friday, and is reminded..you have BATTLE ASSEMBLY that weekend. Battle assembly is the new word for "Drill" in the Army. She is the only active full timer at the unit, and HAS to be there. I don't know what i am going to do now. I'll keep my reservation till I figure it out, but without her, I cannot have my son there as he will be unsupervised.

I feel like John Kerry right now.

Steve
