Hey TinKnocker

Looks good, with tailgate open could be the inside of our F150, we have the Patriot too, but not the toolbox. How do you reach the toolbox, are you tall? I see you have rollup cover, we got the trifold but blocks view of fifth wheel plate which I could see with old truck without cover, so had to use the tape trick to line up.

Another month or so until your trip to Escape, right. You must be getting excited. Even if bad weather there it won't be anything like we just had here, our grandkids were off school three days, the snow blew around like crazy, our border crossing closed for nearly two days, now the cold has arrived with temps around -18C (0F). Can hardly wait to get out of here in Feb. to head to the west coast.

Adrian

David H; Thanks David, It truly is a labor of love when it comes to camping!

Emers382; Thanks Adrian, LOL no I am not tall 5' 3-1/2" hehe but I manage with a small step ladder. Yikes that's cold! -18, all we can do is wait and see? We originally where going to pick up in March or April but with our new president elect I would feel a little more comfortable with our trailer in our back yard.

Mary; "Never know what might come next..... You better keep an eye on her TinKnocker!" Thanks Mary our eyes are wide open but our trailer is a calling so we must go

Really like those Patriot hitches. I hear good things from their owners.

I know this was meant as a joke, but in actuality mules have an undeserved reputation for stubborness. They're very smart and will not do something that they deem stupid or dangerous - they have lots of common sense.
