Hi all you Smarties out there. Just a quick note if you have to leave your Smart sit for a while. We went on a 4 month RV trip with our motor home and left my Smart at home since we have not installed a tow package yet. I hooked the Smart up to a battery minder(not too hard to do, but you have to remove the passenger side floor to get to the battery) and put a bottle of Sta-Bil into the full gas tank. On our arrival home, I disconnected the battery minder and little Smart started right up. I really missed the little guy on our trip, but was happy to find out it did well sitting at home (under our RV port). We did meet a couple from Arizona that had a class A toy hauler (Simba by Safari) that had a Smart Car inside it. Really good way to go--no towing!

Welcome to Arizona. We live here in Tucson for the winter also where our red Passion still gets comments where ever we park it. Fran

We've been carrying our Cabrio with us in our Damon class A hauler this year instead of our usual sidecar motorcycle rig. We LIKE it. It's going with us next month heading out to Arizona for the winter. Nuthin better than cruisin the Apache Trail on a sunny day in January when it's butt-deep-snow in Chicago...

Makes it all the sweeter!

Put the top down. Enjoy...
