Started early..and just stopped and hardly anything got done...from what it feels like! Started off by going to Lowe's and buying little things that were needed for electrical and securing the fridge in. Got the fridge, got her all fitted in and painted around her to match.
Made a door to hide the fridge, kilzed it and still waiting for it to dry. Long story, but the kilz was too goopy! Ughh! So, after that is all dry, I will sand it down, paint both sides of the door, ass…Continue

We took the mirrors off the doors yesterday, they where a rusted mess. Ground all the rust and old paint off and gave them a fresh coat of paint. They look like new !!!
We are installing a microwave today and deciding where the TV and DVD player will be mounted.
Couldn't get anything done last week end. way to cold, windy and raining here in New Lebanon, N.Y.
The next leg of this journey to rebuild while trying not to actually take it apart ! From the start I wanted to be able to continue to use the camper without months of down time. concentrating on a small piece at a time so each section could be tackled and finished in a couple weeks and not months. It was a good theory, but it harder to refurbish this way. But I'm committed to it now.
The kitchen cab and sink stick out into the walk way and take up precious floor space. I am…Continue
Can anyone tell me from my pic what kind of trailer i have. No title available, previous owners don't know.
I am currently restoring a 1963 Yellowstone Camper. I am stripping off all the paint and want to take out the windows and re-install them. What would be best to use for weather stripping. Aluminum sealant, ?
Hi All--I'm so excited to be here!! I am going to look at a 1972(?) Norris Travel Trailer tomorrow. I can find NO info anywhere about these trailers. The pix look a lot like the 1965 that member Jeff has on here. Can anyone tell me about these or direct me to a source of info. Thanks so much!! Sandy

Today I went shopping at Save A Lot. It should be called Save A Little as even groceries in this store are starting to get expensive. At one time the store in Euclid had a nice meat department. Over time it has gotten smaller because of the cost of meats. 4 burger patties now a buck a piece at a cheap discount store.
But that's not what I wanted to…Continue

I know this sounds dumb. I have a 1980 Mobile Scout Vaquero 20' There is a sofa that converts to a bed over it is a upper bunk you fold down the face so that it converts to a bunk. The face has 2 doors so you fold it up and use it as a storage cabinet. I opened it by pulling it down, and now it will not fold back up. I can not fine a latch a latchs on the sides nor can I fold it back up. A piece of plywood is under the mattress and I can not understand how it folds It looks like it is…Continue

I just found a whole bunch of paper work on my 76 dodge explorer 260. It got a new motor in 97. A 440. the manual says it came with a smaller motor. It got headers put on at the same time. not sure how many miles on it now, but I know in the last few years it only went out 2 times a year. Trying to get all the little things working right.I'll keep in touch. Any ideas would be cool.

I have a '99 24 ft Aerolite travel trailer that a vent was broken and I didn't know it or use the camper for about 4 years and now the floor is ruined! Should I try to repair the floor or scrap it out and try to sell it for parts? Keep in mind I'm 61 years old and NOT a carpenter or handyman LOL How do I go about finding someone to buy it in the condition it's in? Any info would be appreciated! I live in central Iowa!

anyone in south fla? Like to know about the area.
Just informed that the GoGo Bus took third place in the Maple Festival Parade. Third time entering the parade and I took third. How 'bout that.
First went to a '70 Pontiac Judge. Second to a '88 Olds not sure the year.
Saturday was just PERFECTO WEATHER and we had a little bit of a reunion as Sabra, Margaret and Sharon showed up as the GoGo Girls passing out candy, shooting silly string and blowing bubbles. Sunday well now that was a different story as it was…Continue
I'm new here and don't know much about RV's as I have been an extreme remote back packer all my life.
Back packing in 20 miles in, carrying a 60 pound pack and sleeping on the ground is catching up to me at age 50.
I recently was given an 89 Mallard Sprint with 60,000 miles on it. It was owned by an elderly lady who recently passed away and willed to me. She loved this little RV ever much and tried to take care of it.
Mechanically it is very sound, the Chevy 350 runs…Continue
