Thumbs up Hi N2XBW

I just bought a 89 Excella 29 Ft. with a Hensley Hitch after having a new 38 Ft. Luxury 5th wheel that went about 15,000 lbs. loaded.
Pulling with a GMC Duramax I was getting 9 to 10 MPG. NOW I am getting 15 & 16 MPG. This brought my fuel cost done from .45 per mile to only .27 per mile and makes the trips a lot easier on the nerves knowing that I can make a U turn with the Hensely Hitch and the smaller trailer, when I have to. I have found myself going the wrong direction with that big rig we had and it would take miles to find a place to turn it around. So overall My wife and I are much more pleased with the Airstream, even if it has a little less room inside.

As I Stated in my previous post~~~~~~~~~

This is sooooooo true.
This is exactly where we are today in this country. But there people stand with their hands out saying GIVE ME ~ GIVE ME ~ GIVE ME.
They are all so uninformed that they are being led to slaughter with their hands out and a BIG smile on their face saying GIVE ME MORE!

I have posted the previously but as the election gets closer it bares repeating.
