So we may still be going, but it may be in the in laws camper. They have a brand new something or another. If we can't find a new tow vehicle in the next couple of weeks our airstream will be sitting in the yard....

you are welcome in whatever you bring. We have had some come up for the day, or stay in the hotel next door, etc. What will you tow the in laws camper with?

Oh yes v10. Hubby won't even look at the v8s or diesels. V10 and v10 only. It will fit the whole family, dogs included. And it will pull the beast of a camper like it weren't even there!!

yes mine pulled two of our 31 footers ( not at the same time ..though)
See if the plugs have been changed recently or at all. That is a major concern with these trucks, and most Fords of that era, my 2006 included. If not, you will need to find a good experienced shop that has done it before and knows the deal. Its about 300-350.

Although mild, this has been a loooooong winter for us.

We are doing a shakedown trip hopefully this weekend, followed by a weekend rally, then headed for Georgia!

We are really looking forward to meeting new folks and enjoying some springtime warm weather.

Time to start the countdown!

Congrats on your persistence and all the best with the new to you Excursion. Looking foreward to seeing it. If I hadn't bought a 60s trailer I'd still have mine. My Excursion works great for us...

Ok PEOPLE ITS APRIL 1 tomorrow! I am going out next weekend to the TCT Rally, and then off to Chattanooga for VW camping & show...then SPRINGSTREAM. In case you forgot.
We will have some special things to share from Vintage Trailer supply in addition to our gift swap after Sat Pot luck dinner. Just a heads up for you all. Still having music and Karaoke as well. Get your groove on.
