Well, I don't know about that being a record, and I'm glad your deal worked out as good as it did, but I want to share something I just found out this past week, about trailer towing.
The Fuel Pump suddenly went out on our 99 Tahoe and we were close to home so we managed to limp into our garage. The Tahoe never would start again so I had to have it towed to the Mechanic and $1,022.91 later (which was for a new fuel pump, filter and 4 new Shock absorbers) we brought the baby home.
What got me to thinking was, what if that happened while we were in the middle of Wyoming, or someplace like that, would my AAA and Car insurance towing cover bringing the Tahoe AND the Bigfoot
into civilization? I found out that my Car Insurance would not pay anything for towing the trailer and only $75 total for towing the Tahoe. Also, we have the basic AAA membership and that will only pay a hookup charge and towing up to 4 miles for the ''cars''.
In other words, I ain't got no stinking towing protection for my trailer. This could be a big problem if we're far away from home. I found out that I can upgrade the AAA to an RV protection that will tow BOTH the Tahoe and the Trailer up to 100 miles. This will cost an additional $69 to bring the AAA up to the Plus package and then up to the RV package.
I'm going to explore Good Sam and other's but you can be sure before we go on a long trip, again, we'll have towing protection for the Trailer as well as the Tahoe.
Just never thought about it before this week and want to prompt you all to check your coverage.
Also, I would like to hear from any of you who have already dealt with this issue.
