Have you ever followed a travel trailer as it's going down the road? These things are like moving/jumping earthquakes. It's a wonder all the interior screws don't back out and the cupboard doors, etc. don't fall off. I'm just grateful when I get where I'm going the paper towels are still on the roll.

Especially on some of the washboard roads we recently travelled, not to mention a speed bump I hit far too fast.

You're absolutely right, Donna. I'm thinking that I need to rethink my storage options. (Or buy smaller booze bottles for that area...?)

Well said, Bob. Cars frequently, and houses generally, cost much more and often have significantly more issues. And it's the "standing behind the product" that distinguishes ETI.

I would go with "rethink my storage options" Carla Jean.

Cheers

This is so true, and one of the reasons that a hard shelled moulded fibreglass trailer will outlast a stick built one.

Are you crazy? Strike that second option of the list immediately.

I am sure you must have typed it in a moment of weakness.

Carla Jean, if you downsize your bottles we can "store" the larger ones for you.
