Hey, Michael i think the southwind is an excellent way to start isn't it? Our good old southwind is the one at the top of the goodoldrvs.com page... prior to that we used the old family 1959 Flxible bus! Cool rig, but all but impossible to keep running since parts no longer exits. We loved the Soutwind and it was a true 4 season "artic" package... that actually was... over 12 inches of insulation in the curved roof and double payne (sp?) windows. Worked great!... but.... we had HUGE problems with the transmission burning up, the somewhat strange emergency brake that tended to self actuate at 65 miles an hour and lock up the entire drive train... it kinda strangled the drive train with a yoke right behind the transission... This led us to sometimes wind us sideways going down the interstate. This, it seems, is NOT UNCOMMON for the 1990's chevy p30 chassis. You'll find lots of people looking for anwseres about this problem on the internet. It also tended to "eat' chevrolet motorhome exhause problems, i.e. it burned out the right bank exhause manaforlds fairly regularly. So, we acutally started this site originally to get rv repair advise from our friends like you when we were broken down somethere. Interesting that some of our best times were actually meeting the people that helped us repair our rv when our chevy p30 chassis broke down (note that the Southwind did not brake, bu the chevy rv chassis did. So, we finally bought the dreaded rv extened warranty and let them worry about paying for the breakdowns.
By the way Bill L from Libermore, Colorado is sitting with my right now... he just droped in on his way to Florida so we're lookin at RV Truck Campers on Craigs list as i write this. He wants to tow a boat and rv dry camp a lot and likes this idea.
Maybe you tow will meet someday in Fort Collins.
Thanks for publishing your pictures here. Enjoyed lookin at em.
Welcome, Michael! We spend a very nice week in Fort Collins this summer at the Riverside KOA just north of town. Sorry we missed you! And we "discovered" your wonderful Redfeather Lakes region. Had some GREAT fly fishing there... also forgot and hit the hydraulic levelers too high lifting the rear duallys off the ground resulting in a resounding crash. No harm done (maybe) they still seem to work. Another chap from north of Fort collins is passing by our little cabin Monday so it's Colorado week! Thanks and look forward to your articles, pictures and comments on our little rv community. Pat, Linda and Lady dog
