We spent a lot of time during the week installing a new clear window in the entry door, a towel bar in the bathroom like the View had, a towel bar under the galley counter, and motion detector lights in the hanging locker and under the sink. Amazingly we got all our stuff into the available storage spaces with space left over. Even though the Trend has half the storage of the View we have all we need for a 21 day trip. We planned to leave the house at 7:00AM only to find I had lost one set of keys the previous night. We never did find the keys and finally left at 8:00 for a campground near Oregonia, OH.
We stayed at the Olive Branch Campground with nice level sites.The Trend is a dream to drive on the Interstates with very little push from trucks, much less noise inside, large rear view mirrors, and a great brightly lit dash display that shows how many miles we can go on the gas remaining in the tank. It looks like a full tank can take us 336 miles at 65 mph. The dash display also shows the date, time of day, and outside temperature. There is lots of power and passing trucks is not the problem it used to be with the View. At one point we were doing 70 mph and hardly noticed it. Tomorrow we head 210 miles to Catawba Island on Lake Erie. We will stay two nights and spend Sunday at Put-In-Bay.
