@Mike. Sorry, I forgot. I guess we still do not exist. Mary and Bob could have made us real, but Kevin either got the flu or, as we now think, got food poisoning at Universal Studios, so we had to miss seeing them. We putzed our way home, since I can't drive with my elbow surgery, and Kevin was sick.

Well, Cindy, I don't know about you, but I do know that Kevin exists! We had a nice conversation at Algonac while I was admiring the VT. Hope to meet up with you sometime.

Hi Deb and Ron, we've already chatted by PM but I wanted to you here on the forum! You're at the right place to get your questions answered. Lots of knowledge and tons of information in the archives. Besides "meeting" all the kind and helpful people!

OK, Pam, so you saw our VT. Except according to Francesca, it has to be seen moving. Did you see it moving?

Deb and Ron,

No one has remembered to tell you that if you leave the Uhaul stickers on or buy a new set from Goosler, you will constantly be told/asked, "I did not know that Uhaul rented campers. We had 5 of these at least on our trip to FL. One even offered to buy it.

I talked to someone on the phone who claimed to be Cindy, but without actually seeing her can I be sure it was???? Another addition to our list of near misses!! Kevin and Cindy will have to make a Florida trip again next winter, we have reserved our "winter guest" site on Jekyll for next year already. And does the list of known VT's include the one we saw in upstate NY? Now working on connecting with Jane and Greg in SC that have a CT.

I long ago lost count on VTs. Here's my recollection: one somewhere in OH; Ray Horner has surfaced and has his VT still; Mike's; one in Nebraska somewhere; Ami's in CA if he still has it; the new one in AZ now owned by Deb; Roger Kimble's; one in Idaho; mine. And now my mind fails me, but since I don't exist, who cares if I have no mind. Anyone think of one that someone who does not exist has forgotten?

CindyL or she who does not exist.

I remembered three more VTs: Matt's in SF, one in Canada, and the other one in NY that used to be Mike Szabo's.

Thanks all for your comments about the hitch. That's what we thought - if it works and it's sturdy, then don't touch it.

Thanks for the welcome and the information you provided. I'm always searching on the web for ideas - how-to's - as well as parts.

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, the hitch is integral to the master cylinder assembly for the hydraulic brakes. So, it is critical to make sure it all slides properly and that the brakes work.

Send a message via Yahoo to Kevin A
Had to chuckle at your disclaimer about "influence of painkillers." Hope you are OK, though.

By the way, on your list, what is a UHaul resistration site? Is that where UHaul owners resist all other trailers?
