My Friends

We knew that this topic would give rise to many responses and we were glad to hear from you all.

We live in Brooklyn here in New York City and our Tahoe barely fits in the garage which is a must for security reasons. The shortest pickup which will carry our family and tow our Safari is a 227 ft. Dodge and that cannot be secured in the garage. The lease on the Tahoe is over in August of 2007 and so we are stuck with the short wheelbase until that date. We are already using the H/A but towing is nothing like when we towed our Trailmanor via a Reese.

We are not thinking of running out and purchasing the Hitch Buddy, but just think that If this device is ever found to be useful, it could be a blessing to us city drivers who must fight for the limited supply of legal parking places not to mention clogged and narrow streets...the very reason that our Schefenacker is on sale in the classifieds. It would be nice to have a way to lenghten the shorter wheelbase of the Tahoe just for towing our 28' Safari but then remove and store the extra piece for moving around the city.

Our TV will definately be changed in 2007 and the Suburban or pickup will have to be bought but in the mean time we are open to suggestions. We are encouraged by the fact that the Hensley Arrow was not greeted with open arms from the start.

Yours' respectfully

Sharon & Winston

CORRECTION: That should read 227 inches and not feet for the length of the Dodge pickup. Thank you.
