Love this thread, I got up early this morning and Saturday Night is getting ready to begin so I'll read more tomorrow (Man, this thread is long!). Charles & I are discussing replacing our 2003 Excussion in the next year or so. Is you mileage differce 8-18. We're both TV's based on diesel, towing or solo?

We are on vacation here in Kauai, Hawaii and will return to Texas in mid-May. We are attending the international Illinois and will take our time getting back to the Texas-Heat. Is anyone planning campout? JB

We were @ The Rivers Edge 2 weeks ago with 2 other couples and 1 Airstream and had a blast! We like caravanning whenever we can. Also went with 2 other couples to Topsail Hill SP near Destin and had a great time in Feb. Has to be one of our favorite Parks so far.

Looks like a great place. Will have to get up your way this summer. We would also like to get back to Asheville for the Belle Chere Festival this year......maybe come to your facility before.

Hey John,

It's not timed for your return from the International, but this FoD subforum is having a rally in Eureka Springs, AR the first weekend in August. We're in Fort Worth, just up the road from you... we could even have a mini-caravan if you decide to join us. Here's the info:

Well, now there'll be 2 trailers coming from the Metroplex, that's enough for a caravan isn't it?

8-18 is not towing. It is a diesel with a 6 speed transmission. It doesn't change much with towing. My last trip I got 16 1/2 -17 towing my 32' AS. It is amazing how great it drives. Quiet, don't even know it's a diesel. Heated and air-conditioned seats. The sync navi is so easy to use. It is made for the road. Now if I could incorporate all those features in my AS Moho I would be all set. Haha.

Maybe we need a Gulf Coast FOD rally next year, earlier in the year, like your trip. A Progressive Rally! (unintended political pun)

We live in Indy but love to head for the MS, FL, & AL coasts. Fly fishing for speckled trout and redfish in-shore is part of the fun.

We definitely do. I'm game! Let us know when you'll be down.
