    Ok, we know lots of you have slips but may of us tow every weekend. So let’s see your rig. I'll start out with mine. It took a lot of work and engineering but I finally got it done. Adding weights to the front bumper real soon.

    Quite familiar with this scene having lived in Wisconsin for 20+ years. We don't stay home we just switch modes of transportation. :grin:
