I think we found the one

It's not pretty, but it's so cool! 

1978 Dodge Cruise Master-Sportsman edition. 

The miles are a little on the high side 93,000 but the way this thing started right up and drove like a beast down the road... there's no way we can pass this deal up. 

So far it looks super sturdy, we didn't see any soft spots or mold. YAY! 

Nice bunk bed for the kids. Nice bathroom with a small tub. 

All the stuff that needs fixing I believe is simply…

RV Parts Country In London Kentucky

RV Parts Country is probably now going to be my first and foremost place to shop from to buy RV parts from. I found a website with a better price than these guys, just by 3 bucks, on an RV shower tub and I was on hold with them for almost 30 minutes and then they hung up on me. After that I called back to order and then they said I hung up on them. This really made me frustrated. Obviously they didn't want my business. I called RV parts country and they answered the phone and was nice to me.…

Keep Your RV Fridge Cool and Food Fresh

The typical RV refrigerator is smaller than the one in your home and if you're like most people you tend to overstuff it, making it difficult for air to circulate and maintain an evenly-distributed temperature. This can also cause some of those meat and dairy items to smell a bit after just a couple of days.


This inexpensive removable refrigerator fan will run for 30 days on two D-cell batteries and has a charcoal filter to absorb odors as it circulates the air in your…

I know the community of young families that full time isn't a huge one. But we are joining the small group. We have 3 small kids, under 8 years old. They are super excited for this adventure. And so are we.  So as far as the kind we are looking for, I think we have decided on a c-class bunk house.

New fulltimers

We are stepping out into the unknown, and beginning our full time RV life. We will be purchasing our first RV this month (hopefully) And we are wondering if any experienced fulltimers would have any advice for us, on how to tell if an RV has dry rot? and stuff to look out for when buying an older used RV.

Totally new to this all

Hello to everyone here.

Please let me start by saying this my first RV larger than a pop-up. I just purchased a 1977 Wellimgton Mfg, Brittainy model 24', GMC chassis, 400 ci, 63000 mi, Class C motorhome. The selling points for me were the healthy smoothness of the motor AND the new roof, so it is watertight, having the sole leak fixed by the mechanic I bought it from. All in all it is very clean for being 35 years old.

This will be my new home, I am going to be a fulltimer. Not… Continue

Bar Option

I have been engineering and designing rv's since I was 19. I'm almost 47 and still loving it. Not that I would ever one-up anyone, I got to play around with a "Bar option" on a decent budget. See attached: Awning and ramp door were electric and bar was on drawer rails so it could slide. Best thing about this unit is the door was the entrance to the rear bath and it all folded back up into the unit @ 27" in depth! I had so much fun with this. You could not tell it was there in transit. Love…

Thoughts on keeping the outer shell not painted

Hi, all,

I am debating about what to do with my Red Dale TT. Its paint is in need of stripping, I know a power washer is all it needs to remove the old paint because it is peeling, but I am considering keeping it unpainted on the top and then painting the bottom half. I want it to stand out and I like…
