Nice!

Couple of questions, is it worth the effort to do the entire length of the Natchez Trace? We did about 50 or so miles of it back in Sept before heading to Huntsville after the Ollie tour. What we saw was very nice indeed, not sure about the entire length though.

Have you noticed any difference in MPG since installing your topper shell?

Since the first photo was taken we have added a Camper Top to the Sierra. That's our Doberman "Reacher" with his head out the window.

That is one fine looking rig! We have the 2013 version of the same tow vehicle, love the power and performance!

A few pics of our new-to-us '85 UHaul CT13... on the way back to central IA after picking up north of Cheyenne WY, at rest stop in western NE... in the shop, before 'unfolding' the rear-end collision damage... and, with the cracked shell 'bandaged' together, and the conversion to 86 Chevy pickup tail-lights. Definitely a work-in-progress... hopefully ready for lots of camping by summer 2015...............

[I've been enjoying looking at the pics of all of your various rigs!!]

Gary. interesting story and interesting rig. With the Neon how does the whole towing experience feel? With cars as TV's the stability is usually very good.

The tow went surprising well. We have 3 vehicles--my aging Neon, with 143k, an 08 Corolla without hitch, and a 95 Ranger with hitch but also with some wheel-bearing issues.

So we took the Neon. With the 5-spd, we just down-shifted as needed on grades, and it worked ok. Felt very stable... we could feel a change in the wind-pressure or whatever when a big-rig sailed by, but it was simply noticeable--it didn't feel like some big push wanting to de-rail us. And I could sure feel the wind-resistance of the upright camper behind a small, low, light car. Still, got 30mpg or so. [versus 38mpg on the way out] So--about a 650 mile tow, with the least well-suited TV in the local fleet, and it still towed well.

By summer, I'll figure to put a hitch on the Corolla--as well as a transmission cooler with fan to safeguard its automatic trans. And I reckon that will pull the UHaul more steadily, with its somewhat bigger size and weight. [Plus--the Corolla has AC!!]

Hey Don... we have a photo of our rig parked in front of the same sign. We also have a nice aluminum patch covering the old furnace vent too. Nice!

I guess the Algonquin sign is a pretty standard pic. The cover is actually plastic and Duct tape.mi put the Grill back on before I put it into storage today.
