Alf, maybe the safest, but probably not the best!

Driveway camping

Remember the blanket tents over the clothesline when, as kids, we camped in the back yard?
Mom would come out and check on us, which, looking back, was probably a good thing.
We dreamed of taking 100 mile road trips and camping in a real canvas tent.

Actually I'd look forward to such a trip, hauling ### out but returning leisurely, while towing upon the return trip. Sounds like my annual treks to Osoyoos where we dodge tornadoes and storms in midwest. Made it across entire US in 96 hours driving 4x 12 hour days. When do we leave?

That was the first year when I got altitude sickness in Colorado, learned how to handle that now. The second trip was a breeze, so to speak...

My wife has made it pretty clear that such a rushed 2 week trip is not something she is interested in, so I'm sure we will end up paying for delivery.

We did it in 3 and a half weeks, from central Texas, which is a similar distance. It was great fun, including visiting friends/family for 2 nights in several locations and 5 nights at Ft. Stephens SP on the Oregon coast (Fall NOG). But the last 3 days, when we had to get serious about getting home (and drove 10 hours a day), were a drag. I wouldn't've wanted to do it if we only had 2 weeks, either... although I'm very glad to have seen the ETI plant (and Chilliwack).

Greg,
I am a retired Federal Law Enforcement officer and a long time camper. My Escape will be finished the first of the year, previously had a Casita. I would consider picking up and delivering your trailer. I know the price would be less then what you are being quoted. I tow with a Toyota Tundra. If interested let me know.
Dave

Mel,
If your 5.0 is hatched 1/1/2016 then it is a 2016 model not 2015 as described in your avatar.
