We did our shakedown cruise this weekend. First time out this year and checking out brake, exhaust and carb work. First time towing the bullfrog our samari. We took off Thursday after work and headed to Diamond lake. Got there a bit after dark but just a stop over for the night.
We woke up to…Continue
Yesterday (Sunday) we worked ALL day from 8am to 9:38pm doing the inside, decorating and found out that Rosie has a leak in the copper tubing below the kitchen sink about the size of a dime. I about died when this happened. This is going to set us back a few weeks. *SIGH*
Didn't get one thing done in Rosie today as planned. We were supposed to have a sanding party, but Mother Nature decided differently for us! It poured rain all day! Ughgh. Although, one of our best friends,…Continue
I am building an awning for our 1966 Kit companion. Cost around $150.00. It is 11 feet long by 8 feet wide. Looks almost original, doesn't require ropes to hold it down and stores in the trailer. I will post pictues soon! Almost every thing was bought at a local hard ware store including the awning material. Sounds interesting? Pictures's soon.
We just bought a 1975 Dutchmade camper. She is 19.5 ft and fully intact. I wish to restore her. I have done vintage boats and yachts but my first adventure into the world of RV. I am a cabinet maker by profession and have a full shop and resources for a rebuild. Need mostly cosmetic work or so it appears. The original appliances are there except for the furnace. The great thing is all of the original documentation, including manuals, sales brochures and original owners notes are in perfect…Continue

Has anyone had any dealings with BHA Solar kits? Saw their add, wondering if they are worth the money. Thanks in advance.
Enjoy the photos then click the link and read about the trip.
Started early..and just stopped and hardly anything got done...from what it feels like! Started off by going to Lowe's and buying little things that were needed for electrical and securing the fridge in. Got the fridge, got her all fitted in and painted around her to match.
Made a door to hide the fridge, kilzed it and still waiting for it to dry. Long story, but the kilz was too goopy! Ughh! So, after that is all dry, I will sand it down, paint both sides of the door, ass…Continue

We took the mirrors off the doors yesterday, they where a rusted mess. Ground all the rust and old paint off and gave them a fresh coat of paint. They look like new !!!
We are installing a microwave today and deciding where the TV and DVD player will be mounted.
Couldn't get anything done last week end. way to cold, windy and raining here in New Lebanon, N.Y.
The next leg of this journey to rebuild while trying not to actually take it apart ! From the start I wanted to be able to continue to use the camper without months of down time. concentrating on a small piece at a time so each section could be tackled and finished in a couple weeks and not months. It was a good theory, but it harder to refurbish this way. But I'm committed to it now.
The kitchen cab and sink stick out into the walk way and take up precious floor space. I am…Continue
Can anyone tell me from my pic what kind of trailer i have. No title available, previous owners don't know.
I am currently restoring a 1963 Yellowstone Camper. I am stripping off all the paint and want to take out the windows and re-install them. What would be best to use for weather stripping. Aluminum sealant, ?
Hi All--I'm so excited to be here!! I am going to look at a 1972(?) Norris Travel Trailer tomorrow. I can find NO info anywhere about these trailers.

YES Malinda and I will be holding a Memorial Day picnic. Place will probably be in the metro parks. Stay tuned.
Today I went shopping at Save A Lot. It should be called Save A Little as even groceries in this store are starting to get expensive. At one time the store in Euclid had a nice meat department. Over time it has gotten smaller because of the cost of meats. 4 burger patties now a buck a piece at a cheap discount store.
But that's not what I wanted to…Continue

I know this sounds dumb. I have a 1980 Mobile Scout Vaquero 20' There is a sofa that converts to a bed over it is a upper bunk you fold down the face so that it converts to a bunk. The face has 2 doors so you fold it up and use it as a storage cabinet. I opened it by pulling it down, and now it will not fold back up. I can not fine a latch a latchs on the sides nor can I fold it back up. A piece of plywood is under the mattress and I can not understand how it folds It looks like it is…Continue
I just found a whole bunch of paper work on my 76 dodge explorer 260. It got a new motor in 97. A 440. the manual says it came with a smaller motor. It got headers put on at the same time. not sure how many miles on it now, but I know in the last few years it only went out 2 times a year. Trying to get all the little things working right.I'll keep in touch. Any ideas would be cool.
