Yup, that was me, I work in Chilliwack sometimes. I imagine you must have been the one with the dark blue Frontier. I saw you guys checking the colour of your decals, against the colour of the truck, with Kim.

I was having the underneath spray foamed as we are heading for the Rockies next week until Oct 6th and I don't want to have worry about the tanks.

Hi: Not so Big Al... We have a slider hitch, but have never slid it!!! I should have used it once... but the ding in the cab of the truck isn't that BIG. Alf

Hi Alf; Normally, how much room is there between the trailer and the cab of the truck. We have a fairly narrow lane to bring it down and some abrupt 90 deg. corners.

Hi: Not so Big Al... I think we have about 31" which takes care of most all our turns. The slider allows another 8" of space...and I must try it some day and take some pic's when I do. Alf

Hi: Not so Big Al... Returning from Virginia my wife wanted to shop at Grove City Penn. I picked two spaces in a virtually empty double row about as far away from the stores as could be. When we were ready to tug off to Buffalo all the spaces surrounding our rig were full . That was an abrupt 90*... outa there.
The big thing to remember is swing wide at first because the trailer wheels will track a shorter inside arc than the truck. Power mirrors really help specifically at gas pump islands.
This pic. shows the space between T&T. We had a nice level pull thru on this trip up north, and stayed hooked up for 3 days of R&R. Alf
