I am planning to buy a lake lot to put my 15 foot Lark trailer on.  I will have a deck built and will be leaving the trailer there for long periods of time.  Should I remove the tires and if so, what do I set the trailer on?  I would appreciate any information.

Long time since I have been on the web sight - It's good to be back. My question is this, we are looking at a 69 American Eagle conversion coach, asking price is $75,000, 42 footer and very clean on the inside outside looks great also. Waiting for more info on engine, trans etc etc. Does anybody have more info on this rig or clubs - anything would help. Thank - You.

1972 Bravo

Calling all campers.... I am looking to gather data on Bravo campers. There is very little information and would like to start collecting data. Maybe start a Bravo site. Please let me know if you have any history with or about Bravo campers.

Gypsy wagon

n I have read the building of several wagons, and plan to build mine close to them, with a few diffrent twists, 1 being lighter matrial instaed of solid wood, 2 being able to lower the upper cabin but instead of alot of cabnets and shelfs out of woods, using nets, and curtins for some things, the gypsys tend on not having propane for heat, and have no water tanks for stowege, fresh or brown, since the prowler has both.

Growing up we were a tent camper family.  For many years we packed up a family car, and drove all over this great country, tenting it all he way.  By the time I was 14 I had traveled thru, camped in, and seem the sites in 38 states (I've added some more as the years past since).

Dear All,

 My apologies, I have been compleatly remis about postings (this is my first). I found a bus! Yea. I call it the Orcas Island bus. The owner had put it up for auction and sadly got no bids.

The bus (with only a shred of clutch left) was shipped to El Cajon california to HB Industries. I greatly enjoyed Bob Rowsell and am sad that health issues…
