Well guys every thing went smooth, after I got use to towing some thing so BIG! (I am use to towing my tear drop!) We made it home just fine but boy did we go through the gas. I can only imagine how much gas the big boys go through.

Have a great time!! and remember to post photos of all new work!

I took a look at your trailer and have a couple questions. Is that your spare tire mounted on the tongue? Has the propane tank and holder been removed? If you can find time to post a photo, it would be much appreciated!!
It also looks like there is has been a round cover installed where the original heat exhaust port was for the furnace next to the door? Can you describe what it is?

Yes that is the spare tire on the tongue.... The propane holder is gone. I think the round cover it some type of pluming vent they put there in place of the heat exhaust the furnace was removed. she was using it for fresh air.

Hey, Kirkman,

Did you buy your CT off Craigslist? I saw one referral from a Craigslist ad here on the forum that should be removed if it is the same trailer. The spare tire looks the same in your picture as in the Craigslist ad.

Do you have a front bathroom?

Well, have a great time with it. Someday, I hope to see a CT up close and personal. As rare as Uhaul VTs are, I have seen 2 of those but still no CT.

Walmart FirstUps with screens does a great job of adding to living space. When we had our Burro (and still with our VT) we prop it against the trailer with one side of curtains tied away, so the door opens into the FirstUp. We put chairs and tables there and spend most of our time there when camping.

Thanks Cindy!
I have a first up and do that with my tear drop often. I was planing on using it with my U-Haul also.
