May your roads be straight and smooth and may you always have a tailwind!
The Chevy was smoking.....and smoking....and even after lucas applications still smoking....it was a 1/2 ton also. and not to mention the fuse box had been rigged by quick fix hands that had wires going over here to way over there. The truck is an eight cylndr. and thats good enough for us.
We by all means don't intend on tearing down any highways at 'lightning speeds' ...no way! Right now we are having the correct pig tail arranged for it so everything works like it should. ....and one day on up the beaten path, we will upgrade to a bigger nicer tow vehicle.
We bought the Chevy for 1250.00 last winter and it was intended to just get us around town. I sold it on craigs list for 1000.00 to get rid of it quick! and to pay the note on the ford...all done in one day.
we have a reese hitch we have yet to put on...the Airstream weighs something around 4500 lbs...and has been pulled once a short distance and it felt like melted butter...it just flowed right behind you like a little kid holding your hand. So right now the important thing is getting the proper plugs/adapters/pigtail and make sure that is all running correctly. I mean I want this trailer to REALLY light up when the lights are lit.
Hey ... was wondering when we would see some photos of the truck. Looks great. You are a step closer to doing some traveling now. Congratulations! Oh ... regarding some of the feedback ... ignore it ... not having a payment hanging over your head and having something you can call "yours" and not the "bank's" says a lot for itself. Congratulations again!
