When we were up there, Sarah said they expected the trailers to be bumped up 3 months in their schedule. But, of course, that was said before they even upped the production, so who knows what will actually happen once they do.

I'm hoping to make the Mississippi River rally in the fall if I'm lucky. But I'll have my new toy to play with before hand, it comes in 4/2. Busy April, 4/1 with Escape and 4/2 with it....

Interesting hope. So, let's see, if you're the first one to call on April 1st, you'll get the first slot for a 19' in January 2017 (unless that spot is already reserved for ya ). And to make the rally, you'd need to have it done by about the middle/not quite the end of September to make it back to the Mississippi River by the end of the month. So, if they can increase production enough for that to happen, they would actually be more than the 3 months ahead of what Sarah said they hoped for. That's assuming they get into that new building pretty darn soon. And since our trailer is originally scheduled for the end of December, that means it should be done even earlier than the end of Sept that Sarah suggested. DANG! That is GOOD NEWS!

I've got a site booked for the Fall NOG and it sounds like I could actually be using it and will have a bit of time to get the blinds installed and other things inside the trailer. YAY!

So, yeah, when you get an actual confirmed date (increased production date, not the one they may first give you) on when yours will be ready, let us know and I can plan on getting ours a little bit before that.

Jim, when you first posted your change of plans I was very excited for your decision to downsize. I was equally excited for your secret in the garage. I knew you must have been lurking on a Mustang or Corvette forum, but didn't know which. Great decision on the Mustang, and remember, "You only live twice".

Hi: cpaharley2008... You're going to have to change your handle to "Mustang Sully" or some such thing. All that raw Hp can get you in a heap-o-trouble... QUICK!!! Alf

The 1967 wheelbase is 108 inches (2,743 mm) - just as long as typical SUVs currently used to tow Escapes. There are lots of other issues, though, such as too much rear overhang. Good thing this isn't a serious suggestion

The current car with a "Mustang" badge is, of course, essentially completely unrelated. About the same in wheelbase, though.

A few hundred pounds of hitch weight would fix that!

Back in '67 all that cast iron certainly did weigh down the front - apparently about 58% of the car's mass. The current Mustang has better balanced weight distribution (only 52% to 53% front, depending on engine).
