I have only pulled a trailer once (with the family boat on it for like, ten miles to the marina) and it was about twenty years ago, I'm a bit nervous. I have been lurking on this forum for about six months while researching what type of trailer we wanted, and it has been a tremendous help. well... i guess that's about it for now. I'm pretty much a complete newbie, any advice or helpful words of encouragement is very much appreciated.
We were in St. Augustine in February 1984, if memory serves.
The overnight temperature dropped to SEVEN degrees. And, the power went off at the motel. We had our winter clothes, and always carried sleeping bags in winter, so hauled them into the motel room (which had only a light
blanket and sheet - and electric heat) Crawled into bed in our clothes and bags.
Next morning, the power was back on, the sun was out, and the whole town was a crystal palace of icicles where folks had left their lawn sprinkler systems running to prevent freeze up.
We visited the old fort, the only people there in our boots and parkas.
