Thought I'd drop by here again with a little update. We finally picked up our AS, a '76 Sovereign
in pretty decent shape. We've decided against the setting up the van with a sink or mini-fridge or anything like that. I've learned that the AS can actually charge the Van's battery (though yet to test this all out) as long as the trailer's plugged in, so for most situations that will do for us...a way to charge our phones and keep a light or two on at night as we're going to sleep.
Yesterday--as we hitched the AS up and started up a ridiculously winding western North Carolina road--was my first time ever towing a trailer of that size. I took it nice and slow, since the road was literally switch backs all the way to where we were parking to do some work on it, but at one point we got to swaying and I have to say...that was the freakiest thing I've been involved in since I was a teenager.
Today has been spent researching from the front sofa bed...fun times.
