I thought I posted here when I 1st joined, but it seems not!
We bought an '84 19'fw Scamp
in April of 2015. It seemed a fair deal, but after purchase, and the upgrades we did, it was an adequate deal. Not unhappy, but we just did not have enough knowledge at the time.
We purchased Mae West in KY, drove her home to MO with a small, '88 toyota (the po used a small ford I think). We thought the small truck was adequate, and really, Truck did a fine job, but my dh Carl was concerned at the age and reliabilty. So we traded in Bluebird, our hybrid Sonata for a Toyota Tundra, and though the gas mileage difference really stinks, Bluebird could not help us in our endeavor!
We named the Tundra (I name many inanimate objects in our life, my weaving & twining looms for example) Lennie.
was named Mae West because she is very curvy, and Mae was a bit of a scamp! Lennie was so named because I discovered that Jerry Orbach in real life was Mae's chauffeur for a period of time. Jerry is not a great name for a truck, but the character he played in Law & Order, Lennie seemed just right!
I will be putting a vinyl saying on Mae in the near future "the shortest distance between two points is a curve", and Mae West on her tire cover, so you will know it is us as we pass you on the highways and byways!!
Not sure they attached, but I tried to put pictures of Truck and Lennie pulling Mae.
We also raised Mae by 8" to allow for the taller truck, and put on a new gooseneck system. So, we have the original hitch attachment for sale
if anyone needs one!
