Balboa owners

Hello, I'm looking for other Balboa Motorhome owners, I made a website, albeit, basic right now, to house this info.

balboamotorhomes.com

I'd like to connect with other owners, compile manuals, info etc. for current and future users. Looking for detailed history about Jensen Marine, stories about Balboas, etc. 

Thanks, Bill

Found Fuel Filter

Searched the entire fuel line system for a filter.

Hidden between the propane tank and the frame, I find the bugger... finally.

Not only do I find the filter, but I find a kink in the steel hose which was apparently caused when someone moved the propane tank to access the filter. This is why this rig was crapping out on the hills. Guaranteed.

Wonder how long the last owners put up with that??…

Slide out sofa / bed to Jack Knife Bed Conversion

Have a older 16' Layton camper. Has anyone converted their rear slide out sofa / bed to a jack knife sofa? Is a conversion kit or hardware made? OR Is there a better option?

1983 Apollo 3300 DB

Just purchased a 1983 Apollo 3300 DB. Frame is in great shape but a lot of work ahead. The 453 Chevy runs fantastic but some water damage inside. Cannot wait to get started and update everyone on the progress! Happy RVing everyone

California PSPS and fires

So we just experienced 5 days of no electric in our home due to power shutoffs in case of fire and at the same time another big fire that came within 30 miles of us.  We never used the generator before and hoped that it being 38 years old wouldn't be a problem.  It worked!  So thanks to our old motorhome we were ready if we had to evacuate and we suffered little with the power outage.  Thank you Onan!

Hi everyone I have a 1977 Dodge that I bought new rims for. I have 6 16.5 in rims for sale if anyone is looking for some. I swapped my old ones for some Ford rims. They need paint but are good rims. I was asking 300.00 but that's negotiable. I'd like to see if someone can use them instead of just scrapping them. Call or text me at 443-968-6535 or email copman87@aol.com

1971 Holiday Rambler Travel Trailer Manual

Hello, I just bought a campsite that has 1971 holiday rambler travel trailer on it. It is in very good shape, but unfortunately the previous owners could not provide a manual for it. Would anyone have any ideas as to how i might get one? Thanks in advance.

Hello New to GORV! Looking for anyone with any info on Juno Real-Lite

Hi all,

So glad to have found this website!  My husband and I just bought a 1984 Juno Industries Real-Lite truck camper in pretty decent shape.  Found the info on here and bought a brochure off Ebay today.  Really trying to figure out the construction method.  Anyone know something about these old campers?  Thanks and am looking forward to sharing some pics when we pick her up this week.

Does anyone else own a TEC travel cruiser motorhome?

We just purchased a 1975 TEC travel cruiser 25 ft motor home with a Chevy 454 engine. Does anyone else have one? TEC also made Travel Mate and lark motorhomes as well. There's little info on them so would be thrilled to find another owner. TEC stands for Travel Equipment Corporation.

Rolled my trailer in high desert winds

The good news is, my carpenter & I repaired it last summer! Completely refurbished rare 1962 Shasta Deluxe Airflyte (16'). Will be selling it at the biggest rally in WA state Mt. Baker Vintage Trailer Rally right after Labor Day. Any idea what to sell it for?
