Sky's the limit with A/S trailers if the checkbook can handle a much modified car.

That wagon, with a better drivetrain, would be great with a trailer from closer to that period due to size and weight.

Condition of both is the most difficult attribute to get right. Both really do need to be fully rebuilt if more than weekend distance trips are envisioned.

i should edit my signature..
i sold the excella, and currently have a 1969 overlander 27" ,
I would love to have a matching vintage TV (no unlimited checkbook, i am afraid)

Hampstead,

You haven't been on this thread you started years ago for a long time. How is it going?
