Cheap or Free RV Insulation with Bubble Wrap

How to Insulate Your RV Windows with Bubble Wrap

Up to 50% of heat in your RV can be lost through single pane windows. Installing double pane windows is not in the cards for this old boys wallet. So, what to do? Bubble Wrap, of course.


I've been using bubble wrap for years in our trusty old cooler in summertime. Ice lasts about 1.5 day in it. After getting a delivery one day from Harbor Freight I was left with a nice sheet of bubble wrap. It was just about the size…

Pondering the Wreck

Lately I've been thinking about what caused our wreck in Colorado. Could it be that the GMC Yukon's ABS breaking system overrode the brake controller so that the trailer brakes did not engage? Is this possible?

We really want to get on the road again but can't seem to get over our near death experience. Maybe we could if we can learn what caused the…

Should I buy This Classic Class C RV?

Well, ever since we wrecked our bumper pull travel trailer and suv on Colorado's grooved pavement a few months ago we've been in search for a good old Class C. Since I usually screw up buying classic campers, I though I'd ask my friends on to give me their recommendations on buying a used class C motorhome. I found a 1989 Cobra Class C in Texas on Craigslist with a little over 30,000 miles on… Continue

Lady Dog's 2009 RV Misadventure Ends In Disaster - Colorado's Grooved Pavement Did Us In

Well, it was a Misadventure after all. Colorado's grooved concrete pavment almost killed us and destroyed both Miss GMC Yukon and Miss Funfinder, our bumper pull travel trailer; They have ended their days in a wrecking yard in the high desert of Colorado. I guess a fitting place to end it all after so many good miles… Continue

Headed to Pensacola for the 4th, pulling my Jaco. Some of the kids And grandkids want to go to the beach. When I get back I will take some picks so everyone can take a look at my future project.

Well, unfortunately it is on the back burner for the time being. To many things going on right now. It is a good running machine.

Thanks for the welcome! We are excited to get started on our Fireball! It seems to be in great shape, cabinets/handles, appliances (minus fridge), windows, heater, etc. are all original in look great! My husband insisted we have double axles on whatever I found so I'm sure he appreciates them too. The previous owner had the original rims (minus the baby moons sadly) so we're working on restoring them. I'm so excited to watch and learn from everyone here!

Hi Pat; I love the conversions depicted on your webpage.  To be honest I would far prefer to do a restoration of a vintage motor-home than front the money for a new rig. Most motor homes spend about 95% of their lives parked in someones driveway/shelter, with very low milage. Thanks for all your help in showing me around. Don

Pat, I now see them, I was trying to view from iPad which didn't show the photos on home page. 

Thanks again for the comments and feature.  I'm enjoying the Spartan and will post more photos soon.

Hello Pat, I received your message about featuring my 1948 Spartan on Members Restoration Area but I don't see it when I go to home page. Thanks for the comments. The wood is birch paneling with a fruit wood stain.

Thanks Pat... so far things have gone well...even the black water thing.  You got me curious now though, we will have to get that movie and check it out!  One thing we have noticed though is our gray water tank is so small!  The showers are going to be short!  ☺
