I look forward to showing the trailer after I pick it up. I myself have not seen the 5.0 TA. I will get my chance in another month as I registered for the Niagara rally in Ontario.
When going to Arizona, hope you are going down the coast and to southern AZ. Northern AZ can have a couple of feet of snow. Have a great trip home!

Cheers,

Warren & Marlene

I have to see how much it costs to ship my camping gear before I make the final decision.
Sounds like a great trip! Much better than January across Canada...

My guess is that shipping the truck will be more expensive than I would be willing to pay, but I haven't checked rates for doing that for about 30 years. If you don't mind driving and have the time, it can be done reasonably in about five days - faster by crazy people.

Heading across the continent is different from heading south, but when not towing winter weather isn't nearly so much of an issue.
