With the countdown to Alto clock showing less than 70 days, I decided it was probably time to get into gear and figure some things out, like how Bella is going to actually tow the Breeze. After a bunch of research with my Facebook group archives (thanks, Altoistes!) and some conversation with a local RV friend, I screwed up my courage and called Torklift Central, the local place that invented the Eco-Hitch and was recommended by no less than 4 people when I was asking around. The woman on the phone was very helpful, confirmed they had an EcoHitch in stock, and set me up for the following Friday to get it installed and also get my 4-pin wiring converted to 7-pin wiring (which I’ll need for Breeze, but please don’t ask me details of why because I’m a little fuzzy on that part).
After I dropped off Bella, with a backward glance as if to say “be nice to my tow vehicle, guys” I walked around Kent for a while. It might rightly be called the armpit of Seattle. It did have a lovely little Japanese-themed park but a paucity of benches on which to sit and enjoy the views.
