I have a feeling you're the one that put together such a nice package for Dick; he sure swears by it.

You guys aren't serious, are you? I mean, I've heard of that dealer up in Canada that sets up, um, "smallish" TV's, but a 34er? On that thing? Nay, yer yanking my chain.

Not me, Mike, I swear!

I'm not a salesman for TTs or TVs or even hitches. Although I think I might enjoy that...

I enlarge that photo as large as I could and I couldn't see a receiver. Not only is that Buick a powerful tow vehicle it does is without a hitch. Wow!

I did the same thing, plus lightened it a good bit, and what did I see as a faint fuzzy object right where a hitch receiver would be...? (You gotta click on the image to be able to see it)

Hi, for a 2010 Buick Enclave: _______________Versus my Lincoln, which would never tow a 34'er.

3.6 L V-6 __________________________________5.4 L V-8

288 HP ____________________________________300 HP

270 Ft lbs. _________________________________355 Ft lbs.

2,000 lbs tow capacity _______________________8,900 lbs tow capacity



I would like to see this Buick in the Colorado Rocky Mountains where it was a good hard workout for my Lincoln while towing a 6,300 lb rated trailer.

Didn't have a camera, but gave you a toot as we passed.

Nice rig, spotted you again parked in your yard (Rt 5?) on our way back home from skating at Lake Morey!

We were in black Chevy pick me up...

Bambi SOMA

South of Market in San Francisco.

It was tucked behind Limn, a furniture store at 4th Street and Townsend.

Can you spy it behind the ivy arch?

Avion sightings.

Hi, while we were in the Las Vegas RV Resort, I saw two triple axle Avions. I'm guessing from Airstream standards, that these would be 34'ers? Note: this really is two different Avions.
