I can't believe I just found this thread today!

Congratulations, Donna, on your new baby. Are you going to install a bowling alley down the middle? It looks big enough. We only have room for one person at a time to be standing. LOL

Glad to see you made it to your B&M home okay.



(You do know that dual axles require consideration.)

Tom, you may know I purchased a 2014 Ford F-150 w/ecoboost. I filled up the fuel tank just before heading to Chilliwack. I did the posted speed limit the entire way. Sometimes that was 70mph, sometimes 60mph and sometimes 50mph. Whatever it was, I maintained that speed limit. I averaged 16.8mpg. Coming home, same road pulling the new 5er... only heading south. I drove 57-65mph. Tried to keep it at about 60mph. I got 16.2MPG. OMG, OMG, Everyone has talked about a trailer 8" wider and about 2,000lbs heavier than my 16' Scamp being a bit of a fuel hog. I didint' find that at all! Time will tell, but right now... I'm a happy camper

That's incredible! It has a nice streamlined shape to it, Donna. No doubt that helps. I doubt we get much better mileage pulling our Scamp 13 with our Forester. Engines are always more efficient when they're not working near max capacity.

Now I'm picturing you sitting in your zero-gravity chair with your Carmen Miranda camping hat on. You're in a campsite, but instead of watching the people walk by, you're facing Ten Forward and grinning from ear to ear!

Congratulation Donna!

I cannot think of anyone who would appreciate this moment more than you.

Many good memories ahead.

Interesting connections on this date. In 1776 The USA declared Independance from Great Britain.

In 2014 Donna launches Ten Forward and on the other side of the pond the HMS Queen Elizabeth was launched with a bottle of whiskey.

I wonder if Donna had an official ceremony and if so, did she use champagne, whiskey or ???

Way to go girl!

Your rig looks awesome Donna, I am so excited for you.
My only concern is if you ever come up here to Canada in the winter you may have troubles finding it, it will blend in with the ski hills and the snow drifts.
we got our 2 month warning from ETI for our finalized build sheet. Now our stress/excitement starts.
See you in just over a week

Donna: I'm so happy for you! The new truck really puts it together, too. (Although if you really want to be a YouTube sensation you might have gotten a Smart Car instead

It will be a while until I can see it in person, but I'm sure it will be a real hit at the meets. Someone should put together an intro package, complete with a multi-media presentation, a band, and maybe a chorus line. I can see you squirming now.
