When we were searching for our AS in 2009, we bought our TV first, 2005 Express 12 passenger 3500. One AS dealer commented, “Ah, yes, the tow vehicle all others aspire to be.” “Silvester” has towed “Silvia”, our ‘06 Safari 25fb through 30 states so far, and we’re determined to fill the US map with stickers (except Hawaii.) When not towing it hauls lumber, theatre scenery, and family and friends to events. It’s frequently borrowed to move furniture and appliances, and loved by the whole family. It usually has one bench seat in allowing the dogs a comfortable seat while still accommodating way too much camping equipment, or 8’ lumber. Remarkably tight turning radius, excellent visibility, and with running boards, easy enough access. I use 600# bars on the Reese cam weight distribution, and we barely feel the passing of an 18 wheeler. I’m thinking about changing the differential ratio to add a little more rev at freeway speed. And I’m hoping to find some used van conversion seats. But we are keeping Silvester until he dies, and we’ll bury him with the pets in the back yard.
