I appreciate the very good idea of a driveway camp...however, I don't think the driveway would be long enough or flat enough. Quite a grade! There are a couple camp grounds fairly close to our residence, but I would also like to gain some experience with towing. Last vehicle I towed was in the military...and that little trailer behind a big dump truck probably isn't the same. Even though we're going to be parking it for the summer, most likely in one spot, I want to get enough tow time in to feel more comfortable with the idea. I will certainly take tools with me, thanks for the reminder!
At least with the systems, I won't be flying totally
blind, as my father-in-law will show me the ins and outs of everything. He's been servicing campers for decades, so he's probably trustworthy. Still an in-law. Maybe an out-law. Nonetheless, he's the guilty one for instigating this deal, so we have to be nice to him. Perhaps his experience will help offset a little of the newbie-itis.
Tin Sista, thanks for the link. We will investigate that for potential sites.
Loudruff, we appreciate the hopitality and might be able to arrange something in the future! If nothing else, maybe get ideas on what we can do with the AS. My wife is already contemplating motifs for the interior...
Keep'em coming, and thanks again!
