Re: SAD day today!!!

Yeah, I am going to do the same thing soon. That does not mean I will not still take it out, I just won't use the water/sewage system. I store my trailer in the winter beside a storage garage I rent only 10 minutes away though.

You can always visit it, just to say hello and that we're thinking of you.

Yes, it was for me indeed sad to leave Cafe Egg behind, knowing she will be alone for a while now...

Re: SAD day today!!!

My egg returned to the nest last Friday for some work to be done. So it will get a drive home and I intend to take it out a few times to the mall to practice backing it up.

The new blinds etc are it's Christmas presents!! lol

Re: SAD day today!!!

Anna-Marie, one of the best places to practice reversing with a trailer is in an large empty parking lot. The marked stalls are great for backing around a corner into, and if you err there is not damage done.

....be careful WHERE you go to do this, some malls frown heavily on this practice and 'security' maypolitely ask you to 'Move Along'....
