Might suggest you see if the fire extinguisher can be put in a recessed holder too. If that is what it is between the steps and door.

What a beautiful trailer! I like how the truck striping matches it. I see you'll be in Algonac in September. Joanne and I will be in the crowd waiting to see it. Congratulations!

Tom

You are right Jim and you can certainly see the difference in size especially the width. But despite your comment to me about seeing a TA in the future for us I think we are in Dave and Sandy's camp on that where we would rather not spend more to move up but with limited retirement funds would rather spend more time south in the winter!

And speaking of Dave and Sandy we are following in their footsteps from their recent MN trip. This was this afternoon. Click image for larger version

Sorry Alf did not mean to turn your thrill to be home with EH2 into a travelogue

Alf, What kind of extended mirrors are those on your Frontier (I can't tell from the photo in message #9), and are they wide enough to suit you with the new 5.0TA? Also, how is your Frontier handling the additional weight of the new camper, and does it have enough power to push through the tandem axle tire slide when turning sharply - especially backing up? We're looking into getting a Frontier as our next TV and just wondering how yours is handling the extra weight and maneuvering with the tandem axles.

Hi: War Eagle... The mirrors are from 1A Auto : Aftermarket Auto Parts, Car Body Parts, Replacement & New Automobile and Truck Parts | Buy Discount Car & Auto Parts Online They are powered/ heated and extend. Simple swap out, plug and play. I put them on in prep for the 5.0TA and glad I did. Fronty is doing just fine with the new 5.0TA. Taking the mountain passes in the slow lanes, and pushing back up hill at home isn't a problem either. I don't want to give up my Fronty just yet.

It was great to meet you Alf and to put a face to the name. Donna, ask Alf what he was doing on Thursday night with a hack saw. Lol

Alf, I'm envious! I hope you get to enjoy the hell out of it! I'm hoping when I get closer to retirement age for one of these!

Hi: Marinab... Nice to meet you too. Sorry I was to busy giving 5 cent tours to come by and see your "Biggar/Escape".
The hacksaw was used for the first "Reace approved" modification!!!
We drove out to Surrey BC. and got a S/S Spitfire 180 BBQ at Dickinson Marine. Some assembly required. It was 1/2" to tall to fit in the new storage hatch, and Reace showed me how they adjust the opening flange for the propane bottles. A quick trip to the great Home Hardware in Osoyoos for a hacksaw and some magnetic driver bits etc etc... and presto "It fits"!!!
You never know when company drops in.

Hi: TomK... Thanks!!! You'll find out what "Fiberglass Flu" is like when you get the new Scamp. If the symptoms get to bad "Take two aspirins and call me in the morning"

Glad to hear you made it home safe from the trip, Alf. It sure was great to meet you and Maryanne. Some day after we retire, we will have to make it out your way. )
