I received two inquiries of interest today about my Hi-Lo Tow Lite and wrote the following to both inquirers-
Thank you for your interest in my HiLo Towlite. I was going to write a new HiLo forum ad about my TowLite since it seems to raise and lower OK, and I towed it a short distance without problems. I lowered it and pulled it to the side of the yard on a slight hill where I should have had it before, since there was never any sign of a leak until I left it on the level in front of the house over last winter.
I have the $2800 bill of sale and the receipts for most of the $1000 of new equipment it now has-
4 new tires (less than 1000 miles)
new battery charger/power supply
new water pump
new shroud for Penguin air conditioner
new RV cover
I think it is road worthy and you could could tow it back to Kansas.
It will take me a while to take pictures since I have to tow it back to the one level place in my yard when it's not raining in order to raise it and take photos. I may have a few pictures which I'll search for. I also have the TowLite "Owners Care and Instruction Manual".
I'm also sending this to someone who came and looked at the HiLo, Clyde Cash from North Carolina, but darn if it didn't rain, so we couldn't pull it on my slick grass to where it was level, and in addition his wife wasn't in favor of buying it, but you may want to ask his opinion of the rig since he's been inside it and has owned a similar rig.
My opinion is that it is usable right now (although there is obviously a pinhole or two leak in the front half of the roof), but it is a project to get half the interior walls and ceiling back in good shape like they were before. They have been stripped down to the exterior wall. I just turned 80, and it's too much of a project for me.
I haven't been able to find the title, but would apply for a duplicate if there was interest in it.
