    December 13Ok, our turn. Looking for a spot near Ft Meyers. Seems impossible to find anything under $1500/mnth. We can swap spots with someone if that would work. We are currently in Nokomis 1 mile from the beach. Any help greatly appreciated.

      Steve & Diane November 26 M and L:  I'm sorry I failed to make my point clear.  What I tried to ask is why not take the vehicle out of the trailer and drive it (assuming the vehicle was street legal).

      Mark and Laura Alward November 27 Couple things to know.  The tow truck driver will remove your driveshaft, most likely your generator exhaust pipe , and tie up your rear mud flap.  I asked the dealer to check torque because the driver just tightened it.  I hope he installe...  more
