72 Dodge Travel Queen - Its coming alive


Finally.... found enough time & nerve to start a blog about this old gal. Took on this project in November 2012 and have not looked back since. First year rebuilt driver side of the camper (see our video - Camper Restoration PUBLIC_0001) and during the summer months finished three of the exterior sides. With a little fiberglass repair, sanding and 6 coats of marine based paint the…

The newly christened 'USRV Dreamer', finally seemed to be ready to try and take a trip & the front tires that looked almost new (actually c1990 still had the nubs) went bad before we ever got out of town. Thank goodness me and my new puppy been driving around with it for a week. Got some newer 16" tires and GM wheels from a guy on craigslist (GM wheels will only work on the front). I learned a bunch from him about tires. I learned 20+ year old tires ain't gonna make it very far. I also…

I am having a heck of a time finding rims for my 1962 28 foot Airstream trailer. I can't find anyone that even knows anything about them. I talked to several dealers and even Airstream themselves. I can't get any answers!!! I was told that rims from a mid 70s chevy would work so i bought some and the tire rubs on the shock absorber and the wheel won't even spin. Going nuts over here!!!

Fire Safety.

It should be written in stone that EVERY RV'er should have more then ONE Fire extinguisher. I occasionally get a wild hair to go L@@KING at the NEW RV's, The A's,,B,s C's, Bumper pulls and 5th's. Just to see what new and improved plastics and fiber board they are implementing in them.  3 out of a dozen or more that I walked through,,,had a fire extinguisher in them. When I questioned the saleman or woman about the lack of them,, They said that its the customers obligation to have one put in…

The Starting Point- continuation-chapter 4

Hello fellow campers, boondockers, and traveling gypsies, I posted a page yesterday and it seems it got lost somewhere in cyber space, so trying to remember what was said on that post, I will try to regain some of the info on this post.

So after having repaired all the rot on the CAVELCADE, I loaded it on my truck and it felt a little tipsy. So I went to the scales close buy and figured out why. My truck is 6600 lb GVWR stock. Even with the extra heavy duty shocks on the front, 10 ply…

The Starting Point- continuation

Hello and Good morning fellow vintage people, campers, and rigs. To all those who have left comments to my blog, thank you, but please let me clear the air for a moment. When I started this blog, I started from the beginning of my camper adventure. To those who have left comments to the chopped camper, thank you but that camper no longer exists, as you will see if you continue to follow my progress.

So with the air cleared, let me continue with this epic adventure. After mounting the…
