Sandra, I made the straps for the microwave
myself from 3/4" wide 1/8" thick aluminum I bought at Lowe's. They're strong enough to hold the microwave, yet fairly easy to bend the right angles needed at top and bottom for fastening with machine screws and nuts. They do a great job!
We did a 3 day trip to Letchworth State Park, a NYS park often called the Grand Canyon of the East (Letchworth State Park Information
). We've been there many times over the years. It's a favorite now because it's close to our kids and grandkids, and they camped with us. It was a family affair!
By the way, towing the Parkliner
with our 2013 Escape
with the factory tow package, we got 21 mpg (and more) at 58 mph.
Any of other questions or whatever Sandra, just let me know.
