hey Pat & Fellow RV'ers

Pat and everyone else it's been a LONG while since I posted.  Finances have kept me sidelined from traveling and enjoying my rig BUT I was blessed with a trip to Pigeon Forge, I am here now.


Hope you don't mind Pat that I am enclosing a link to my blog.  Have no time to post in multiple sites.  I am sending part one and if you care check back in and read the rest.


Heres the blog:…

Started to fab up the electrics in my van

I have had the bed section partition walls made for weeks now. But I had a CD player/radio that I wanted to use in the van. I shaped up a board with a form fitting hole to accept the radio and cut a matching hole in the front partition to hold the radio- obviously I needed 110 volts to run it . I am planning on making a section  of extension cord that will attach to the beaker box and then this will feed the receptacles in the van. Can't install this stuff until I get the walls done.

1965 FAN!

She's not the Style Liner I've been trying to buy from the 'hoarding farmer' but she's mine!  Soon as it warms up, I'll put my carpenter to work on the mess someone made putting in a microwave--and then roll on a whole lot of Kilz.  Then pick a color that…

Insulation is in!

Finally got the walls insulated with foam core with metalized film over that I added 6 inch thick R-19 fiberglass so it should be nice and cozy and pretty much sound proof. Also insulated the bed strutcure walls with foam core to help with keeping noise down.

Now on to installing the plywood on the interior walls.

Okay finally snapped  a few pix to show the ongoing work. I used cardboard to make templates for the rear corner walls and also the beginnings of an overhead console.…

RV Wholesale Campers On the Block

While doing a little snow birding in Florida, I ran across a couple guys out on the lake where I was fishing that was camping in the same park as me. After some small talk over the bass, they told me if I needed to upgrade my camper to check them out. They own a company called RV Wholesale Campers and he kind of gave me a gist of the prices on everything. I'm not in the market to buy anything new now, but it was definitely below…
