16' to 19' with a 6 cyl. Any larger and you will need a bit more stout TV IMHO.

Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq and millions of others are by far the most popular with about 70 million machines in use worldwide. Macintosh fans note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form. -NY Times 11/91

Tow vehicle

Yes that is a concern that we might need to face. Do you have any recommendations for good used trucks or SUVs?

THe two of us and our Border Collie and Jack Russell travel in our 20' Safari. While I wouldn't call it spacious, it's quite comfortable. I took the door off one storage bin and the JR's sleeping pad fits perfectly so she loves sleeping there out ofthe way. The BC parks under the table.

We went from a hybrid to our AS for much the same reason as you changed- it's a pleasure not to have to set a lot of stuff up each time you want to camp.

I don't trial in CT, but if you've been to NY or NJ AKC trials, we've probably crossed paths.

You're going to love your CCD!

New AS owner!

We have only been to one trial in NY, the infamous Blackthorne! If you've been there and survived the night life, you might have a chance to Q!

We are picking up the trailer either Friday or Saturday. It depends on when my son's truck is available. We have to face the reality that our F150 will not manage the load of the AS and has more value as a trade for something bigger.

Thanks again for the welcome to the group.

Congratulations on your new AS! We have a 2003 22' CCD and love it. I agree that your 6 cylinder F150 is not up to the task of towing it. We tow with a 5.9L Dodge and appreciate the pulling power, especially in the mountains of the west.
