old travel trailer no bathroom

Need advice or suggestions on a porta potty and shower.  Seems like a potty with separate tanks will cost under $100.  Would like to hear from anyone in my situation.

where were you when the lights went out??

Hey Gang,

Caravan (RV ing) in Australia

We went to Australia for 4 days in severe weather, a cyclone, flooding, high winds! But the bright spot was we rented a mini-van camper and drove from Melbourne to Sydney. It was kinda neat to stay at their RV parks and meet the native Australians touring the coast as well! See the photos attached to my page.

I Remember.....

I remember, The days when I could walk down the street and not worry about being hurt by anyone.

Gas Prices

I am the proud owner of my second glastron.  My first was a 1970 and the one I have now is a 1969.  It was driven to Northern Michigan by a friend 15 years age and has been in his pole building since.  The mice and other rodents were using it as a storage unit in the walls.  I have started to redo it a little at a time.  We will be moving to California this spring so it will be stored at my sons home in Wisconsin.  My plan is to spend summers in wi and continue…
