“Escaping Reality” is home :-)

Wednesday I picked up “Escaping Reality” and brought her back to a loving home. Needless to say I was as excited as a little boy at Christmas time. I had fretted about backing her on to the parking pad; the alley was narrow, the gate was narrow and so on, but when the time came and with a little patients she went right back there.

Of course by the time we got home "Escaping Reality" was dirty from all the road spray she needed a good bath.

17B with AC. How tall is that, anyway? Just might fit in some car washes...(or are you pulling our leg?).

Beautiful trailer! Just love the pictures. How does Gonzo like it?

There are truck washes ( big enough for semi trucks ).
But, I'd like to hear more about the experience, given the vents and stacks on the roof.

Just noticed the mirror extensions. Did they help or were the standard 4Runner mirrors enough?
