Upgraded the RV
« on: September 10, 2019, 10:35:03 AM »
We've been looking for some time at the possibility of replacing the coach with one of several options. Chris came home recently and said that she'd found a trailer. It would be interesting to see how two of us and two dogs would fit in  ???

I wonder what the gas mileage would be towing that thing?

I would strongly suggest a Yoga class for about 6 months prior to the purchase! ;D :))

LOL Marty. I think Chris would need to fold my bod in several places and wrap me in Gorilla tape before stuffing me into the trailer  ;D

I think if you asked the dogs, their response would be, "we like it, but where are you going to sleep?"  ;)

How big are your dogs?

I guess that would fit behind a Mini Cooper or smart car.

Heck with replacing the coach, you could put that in a storage bay and have both when you travel.
