Just retired with a not so good back after 30 years of semi-trucking,and now going to full time R/V with something very small and conservative,,,and would appreciate help with some ideas..I have a small S10 that gets 25 mpg,and willing to switch that , but love to be with people every day,so need good gas mileage,,Was even thinking of starting with a Casita trailer ,or mabee a VW eurovan ? Any ideas welcome and would like to be married again one day Thanks George 360-953-2184
Thank you for the warm welcome, and the tip on the tar! Other than having to learn all the systems, my biggest hurdles are controlling the leak/fixing the roof/damaged paneling, and figuring out where to go and what to do about energy (generator?solar? no idea!). So the tar tip is HUGE for me. Thanks! Even though I'm getting ready to 'rough it' I still want the interior cleaned up. I'm ripping up the carpets and fixing up where my clothes will have to go. If the mold issue runs away from me, I'll get sick because of allergies. So I'm trying to get the moisture levels under control. The roof is the first stop on fixing that problem.
Luckily, I had a gentleman by the name of Robert Stringfellow give me the rundown on my engine. Robert has been oil/lube fixing trucks and whatnot for over 15 years, and before that, he was in the airforce. Nice, intelligent guy with a crazy hotwheels collection in his work truck. He said that the antifreeze is good, checked the transmission fluid, belts, hoses, all systems on the engine side are a 'go.' He said I got a great deal on the engine actually, which is good, because I don't know squat about them. I just heard ford is more durable, and that chevy is easier to work on. I bought the RV from a guy in Maine who owns a Tire Garage. So, he was a motorhead himself, and put all new tires on the rig. I may not know much about RVs… but I know a guy that own a tire shop would have serviced the RV a little better than someone who used it for recreational use. He sold it because he is going to buy his friend's RV to upgrade. I think I have a new hose/belt that came stocked in the RV… I just have to figure out how to change it.
Thank you again for the warm welcome, and the blessings! I sincerely appreciate it and wish you the same! I'm a young 31 years old, coming from the east coast. I'm not a religious gal at all… but if I stumble across a good christian lady in my travels, I'll be sure to tell her I know of a friendly trucker on the prowl for a kindred spirit to take the 'long haul' with!
