    • It’s a really cute trailer and I know a couple of people who own them.  The one person I met who was full-timing in one was single and was towing with a Wrangler - it was about the biggest trailer that would work for her.  She was quite happy with it. I full-time in a trailer that’s bigger, but not huge by any means (16-1/2 foot box, 21’ overall).  It has a transverse bed like the TAB does and while it took me a bit to figure out how I was going to make it work, it’s not that big of a deal to keep it made up.  I know of several couples (younger than I am) who don’t mind the crawl over aspect, though at my age, if someone else was in my life I would have a trailer with a walk-around bed. As has been brought up above, it really depends on the two people.  They need to spend some time in it, trying out how to live in it, where to put their clothes etc.  I have a storage unit and visit it a couple of times a year to swap out seasonal clothes.  I have the storage unit for other reasons - I would not want to pay for one just to keep seasonal clothes in it, but since I have it, using it to store off-season clothes works for me.
    • I have it in the truck & trailer, however the only time I use it is when I can't get a FM radio reception (usually NPR stations) or can't connect on line to an internet radio station.  I agree that the compression is terrible, however since I mostly listen to voice, it is do able... If I had to pay more than $5.00 per month for each radio, I'd drop it.
    • I test rode 2 Zero electric motorcycles at a dealer demo. One was a rapid upright nekked type and the other was an enduro style on/off road police bike, about the size of a Suzuki DR400.  Very popular with law enforcement in parks and event venues - ride up and down stairs, walkways etc.  Anyhoo I had my black gear on. I'm like, "I wonder if the blue and reds are connected?" Well now don't they work a treat in congested traffic to get folks to move over a bit so you can split through.  Some drivers even put their phones down.  An electric road bike does not fit my needs due to short range.  I could see owning an on/off roader. 
    • Have the sirus subscription with all channels , music news sports nascar nfl etc. In f450 sync 2 and escape sync 3 plus app on the smartphone or computer.  Also has the travel link for traffic ' fuel weather ski and movie listing.  It automatically renews the subscription on credit card think it's every 3 years.  Also vehicles can connect to smart devices and can stream pandora from internet where you make your own channels.  Lastly they have USB ports and we have flash drives with gigabytes full of music where I ripped all our cds too ' having hundreds from the 1980s to 2005 and any new album releases we just purchase the downloads onto the computer and then copy to flash drives . Media choices are a good thing. 
    • Maybe would smell worse, but not sure if they would burn. That's my main worry. My Cat litter seems to be working so far. No new cones found anywhere. My cat also decided to get out of her "Harness" today and explore under the truck. That may reinforce the 'maybe not a good place to store food' sense.    Rod
