April 28,

"T" stands for the "Trip"...

One of the items that is part of the across the county round trip is that we are picking up a car, a 2002 Honda Accord, in Washington DC and bringing it back to California. It may turn out to be a toad, not sure yet.

I spent several hours this morning researching tow systems versus shipping the car back by a private carrier versus renting a auto tow dolly. You would think we were launching a space shuttle with the amount of information I gathered today.

The conclusion is to rent a auto car dolly for $440 dollars, the rental place gives us 11 days travel time. To add a permanent tow system took to much time and several thousand dollars, and the auto shipping cost was about $800. Plus, we want the use of a car on the return trip.

I was back at the RV today checking lights and found a license plate bulb burned out. I know, its a very small item, but I'm a bit quirky about all the RV stuff working.

It's about 8 pm now, the rest of the evening I'm researching RV campgrounds for the trip coming down from Washington DC to Jacksonville Fl.

You may want to check out Ebay for a tow dolly. I bought a 2008 TowMaster last fall for about $800. It was in perfect conditon and have gtten my money's worth our of it in about 6-months. I saw the same cost for renting a tow dolly from U-Haul for a trip to Florida. Neither of my cars can be a toad, so the tow dolly has worked out great.
