Given your rigs, I would choose based upon how much extra traveling you will be doing once you arrive at your destination.

Driving is such a pain; so I'd probably fly down in my Gulfstream G-4, grab a suite at the Grand Floridian, and rent a nice convertible, like, say a Ferrari f430, just to bop around in.

Tough decision; life is so hard and, geez, the question of life experiences comes up. The important thing is the road.

Well, I am taking Moho to Key West in January. I pick up a 1995. 28' AS trailer next week in KY. Selling the 34' come spring. This would be the last trip for the 34', unless I don't sell. Oh FYI I shipped 3 68's to denmark last month. One of which was one of my personal ones. They are just hard to part with ;-) I will probably take Moho knowing that I will take truck next week. I also just love driving the Moho. What it comes down to is the trailers are back up if Moho is in shop :-) moho isn't in shop so that means I made my decision. Moho! Gas prices are coming down too! here is pic of my new project. Got to have a project. :-)

LOL, Keyair cackles...

This is all part of my quest to get the rear end sealed, and stop the rain leaks believe it or not!
The Streetside Tail Lamp Assembly is right where the water was dripping inside, so even tho I saw no leaks in that area last week, it is a suspect.

There is a Rubber Gasket on each lens... Some of the lens had the gasket between the lens and the reflector can.
Some of them it was between the relector can and the body...
Anyone know what is correct... or should there be 2 gaskets?

Take the Moho...I checked the map and Key West is almost straight down from from Athens, so you should get good MPH...LOL. Anything to get more AS's in Florida is a good thing.

I am taking the Moho, after all it's not in the shop and that's what I bought it for. :-) It's going to be in the 20's and 30's lows this week in GA. I can't leave her in all that. Leave this afternoon for Walt Disney World to spend with family. I will update. :-)
