Thanks for the great advice and ideas everyone. My wife and I are spending a lot of time talking to each other about this. Nobody else understands!!!

Ron showed me his 19 here in Ohio, then we drove up to Ontario to see Alf and his Escape Hatch. The border guard on the way home really did'nt want to believe that we drove 250 miles to spend an hour or so looking at a trailer....I explained that its a special trailer.

Hey fudge_brownie are those road bikes or mountain bikes you are hauling around?

Your ideas are great. We hope to get one or the other on order soon.

Hi: SeldomSeen... A big part of my preference for the 5.0 stems from the fact there's no bending or kneeling required to hitching up. It's all at waist hight. The older I get the more waist I have...and my knees doeth protest!!! Yes it is a positive tow... you have to keep reminding yourself that's a trailer back there.
Depending on which truck in the F150 line, 2dr. or 4dr. short box you get the hitch can be viewed thru the cab window. Personally I prefer the full 4dr. pickup for versatility.
Too bad it was so cold out that we didn't spend any time looking at the hitch part.
Aren't border guards supposed to view everyone with suspicion? Alf

Methinks we have a few in Calgary too.
Even I was once falsely accused.

J Mac- To be precise, Pollock Pines is in the upper Sierra Nevada foothills, halfway between Sacramento and South Lake Tahoe on Hwy 50.
