Welcome aboard grayhackle !!! Its an honor to have your experience here. Glad your still hang'n with the '96. Our '02 is doing very well. We've only had it since 7/4/10 but we are very impressed. The older units seem to be well broken-in by now, so its easy for us to keep on-top of things, and learn as we go.
We're not towing, but still spending alot of time in it. (nearly every weekend)
Look'n forward to hear'n from ya !
