More pics up. The Bird flew straight and is now fledged.

Performed very well on the hwy., stayed cool and fuel mileage will be determined later when I fill up. The trip was short but climbed some serious hills. Northbound=40-50 mph on some stretches, south = 20-35 on the steepest.
Trailer weighs about 1400, with car about 4300.

All my planning worked out well, comfortable and stayed cool/warm as needed.

We both showered and used the toilet without incident.

The TV/XM/AC/heat/hot water/window screens etc. all worked just fine.

The solar was not an issue, we had elec. hookup.

A successful first outing !!!!!!!!!!

The steepest grade on our trip was posted at 6%. I clocked it: 7 miles with 1500 feet elevation gain.
