Good Morning happy campers, and not so happy. Well continuing the saga of the starting point, after having many trucks in my life time, I was in dire need of some transportation, previous truck wasn't getting the gas mileage I needed, and repairs were too costly, so I sold it. I stumbled on my current camper hauler, 1987 Dodge D250. I found it via craigslist, and after purchasing it for $1200, took it home and started cleaning it up, and found the original window sticker from the…Continue
Since joining this Vintage Camper, I have been urged to start my own blog and fill folks in on what the heck I'm doing in sunny south Florida with my Honor Built 8' slide in camper.
Hello my name is David, I live in my Honor Built "Aztec" camper, which I found on Craigslist last summer 2014, in Chilecothe, OH, that had been stored for almost 40 years in a well built barn. When I answered the ad for the camper, $500 asking price, I fell in love with it at first sight. All the cushions…Continue

I am currently working on a 69 Nomad. I took the hubs off and am booking into why the brakes where on working. I found the brake shoes, bearings and tires online.
Yesterday I connected the power for the first time and everything worked but the air conditioner.
I am also having to revisit the Oven and furnace since my light stick ran out of fluid.
On of the biggest contributions is a book I found at the used book store by Bob Livingston, second edition.
I am trying to do…
What have I been doing that I'm NOT supposed to be doing and what have I've been doing thats constructive?.

I began to write this blog so I can share my experience of rebuilding my Vintage 60's Yellowstone Camper. My plan is to post videos and pictures of my progress.
One day as I was peacefully ejoying my quiet retired life, my son came home and decided we needed to clean out the garage! We ended up with a large pile of scrap we didn’t know what to do with. Chris got creative and started welding pieces together creating beautiful art. That looked pretty interesting…Continue

We just came in from a day of work on the H.H. Our floor was shot so taking it out was more a matter of sweeping up rot, pulling nails, sweeping rat crap, and figuring out how the thing was put together. Unlike other trailers we have worked on where the entire floor is built and finished, and the walls built on top of that floor the HH is different. The floor is independent of the walls. The whole system is different. Directly on top of the angle iron and channel iron frame is a flat…Continue

I did find the mfg for this trailer..I's Gold Star out of FT. Collins..
Pat has suggested that we talk about what we are doing with our older motor home Recreational Vehicle, and how that work is progressing. I think that a 28 year old motor home RV qualifies for the term "classic" or perhaps "vintage," so it should meet the definition for "older," so it might fit in here.
I had not really intended to get a motor home RV back in the summer of 2013. It just sort of happened. It had belonged to a…Continue

I was waiting for it to warm a bit before we went out to work on the Holiday House and I saw this invitation to start a blog. At 62, computers in general, and "new media" in particular are as foreign to me as a foreign language. I have never blogged, or journaled and anything that took time or effort on the computer. As a general contractor by trade, I feel much more comfortable doing the work than talking about it. But what the heck, why not give it a try?
The story of the Holiday…Continue

We are 2 Southern Women who have been traveling in an old Class A RV for over 2 years now. We started out just trying to visit every single Florida State Park with RV camping. But as with anything else in life that requires quite a bit of money to keep doing. So about six months into our adventure we decided to become volunteer workampers in the Florida State Parks to help pay for our site fees. We make and sell handcrafted items, I have written a book (Insiders Guide to Campground Hosting…Continue
