Getting ready to paint the Toad...

Well: we're getting closer and closer to laying some fresh colors on the Toad!
I called Tiffin, and got the BASF paint codes...
The Missus is going to stop at the shop, and make a deal this week.
(It's a surprise for my Birthday at the end of the Month... )

Oh! One other issue has been decided... We're going to get a little bit larger trailer (with brakes!) , and let the Toad become a "Trailer Queen"!

Pictures will follow; once the paint dries.

One more thing... I gassed the little bugger up this morning, and got 65.1 mpg!

Cool, that'll look great I'm sure. A buddy of mine bought a Jeep Gladiator and had it wrapped in the same colors as his MH. He didn't want to paint the Gladiator as it's a "Launch" edition, so he wrapped it. Cost him $3,500 but it looks great and he got to keep the factory paint.

The trailer is all aluminum, so we're just going to leave that "as-is".

But I will get a sign for the Toad's rear window

"The squirrels are just resting"...

How about: "Patience. I'm pushing this RV as fast as I can".

I originally wanted that one.
If we were towing it four-down: it would have been the only logical choice.
Since the Toad will be a "trailer Queen": we figured it to be more accurate to say that we're not pushing the squirrels beyond what the Labor Laws allow...

Update: They've got the paint figured out, and just need to free up a bay...
But I've been busy buying crap for the inside of it...
