We flew out of Denver and picked up our 2350 on the E450 chassis on February 3rd. Hats off to you hardy cold weather campers but we stayed in hotels on the indirect drive back to Denver via Elkhart-Columbus, OH ( for a trade show)-Madison Wisconsin ( braving the minus 11 temps to see our daughter who attends school there) and back to Denver ( 50s and 60s this week!).
We needed to hit the ground running work-wise upon our return, so the rig is in storage for now. We are very excited for some consistently warmer weather and hoping the winterization job by the PC folks protected the plumbing on our arctic journey home.
The next step is setting up a Wrangler Unlimited as a tow vehicle. I ordered a Tomken ( http://www.tomken.com/detail.php?id=390
) Winch bumper for the Jeep with optional tabs for a Blue Ox Aventa tow bar. The Jeep will not have a lift so the after market bumper will eliminate the need for a base plate and preserve the clearance we already have.
I am estimating (wont know for sure until the bumper is installed) an 8 inch difference between the PC receiver and Jeep bumper tabs so I hope an 8 inch riser will do the trick to level the towbar.
As far as supplemental braking, SMI or Unified would be my first two choices, but an RVi2 dealer is about two blocks from work. I hope this choice on the side of convenience doesn't bite me in the butt later.
We head to Vegas for another tradeshow at the end of March and then on to Palo Alto, CA, so hopefully, I'll have all this together in time for a shakedown trip before then.
