Planning to go full time in an RV is exhausting! There are so many variables to consider. Ron and I had hoped that our 1997 Suburban would be able to pull the trailer that we fell in love with at the last RV show we attended. However, after Ron did some researching on tow capacities, we discovered that the Suburban wouldn't be the right vehicle for the job. We needed something that would tow a lot more weight.
I'm happy to report that Ron found a perfect match and it's sitting in our driveway :-)
"Red" is capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds, is a comfortable ride and goes along with our 'R' theme. LOL
Red is a 2003 Ford Excursion. Ron jokes that he drives a modern car that was made in this century :-) My Camry is a 2000 model but it was made in the 1990's...
We chose the Excursion because, like the Suburban, we need the back area to fit our work equipment and also enable us to pick up a full 48" x 96" sheet of acrylic (or another material) for fabricating.
After the upcoming trade show we'll get the house ready to go on the market. Once the house sells, we can purchase our dream trailer outright, pay off the truck loan and start off debt free!
It's so exciting to say these words: Retirement Here We Come!!!
