Thanks for all the info. I just emailed about the Little Joe
to see if some customization can be done to bring it into my weight limit. It may be a possibility. With all my research and Googling, I have never come across that item before - Thanks.
I will check out the items made for motorcycles, but I think I have looked at them in the past and wasn't comfortable with the idea and size. Like Donna said, buying something where you have to be "laying down to pull on your pants" is not something I want to invest $ in.
As far as a tent trailer, they are nice, but I want something a little more secure. I had looked at the Tentrax and others in the past, but I would like a "hard shell" around me, if possible. I am not a tent person - maybe would have been when I was younger, but I am not younger anymore.
And I believe that some of the RV parks won't accept them. I was hoping to do this trip slowly. I have moved cross-country twice and always in a hurry - would like to enjoy this one.
The screen room that I wanted to take with me is just one of the lightweight, pop-up types. It is for the "girls" to run around in and be "outside" after a day's traveling. I will have to fashion a floor and figure a way to secure it. Both of my cats are escape
artists and will be looking to get out. They are now allowed to go in and out whenever they want - this will be a BIG change for them - should be a good way to drive me nuts at the same time
I am doing as much planning for them as for myself. What a sucker!
I will continue to work on this. As I think I mentioned before, I may have to buy a small motorhome and tow the VW. Will cost more and the gas mileage will be horrible, but may be my only way of doing this.
This has become a project to be conquered. But I truly appreciate all the info. Glad I came onto this forum.
