Sometimes you get what you asked for~!

Tiz good and bad I would say.

So I had my camper found! A homemade slide in truck camper in very nice shape. The camper would have come with the tie downs, the a/c and new tv he had just  bought. I worked my tail to the bone and came up a couple hrs to late. He sold it to another gentleman who came and upped my price by $400. Whats a man to do, no harm, no foul, I would have done the same thing.

Roof repair on 1984 Winnebago Chieftain motorhome

When we got our 1984 Winnebago Chieftain motorhome it had been sitting for some time.  The roof showed signs of previous repairs, none which were done properly, and not knowing any better I performed more repairs for minor leaks, again not done properly, so after a 1400 mile trip from New Mexico to Alabama, where we are located now, I decided to research rv roof repairs and discovered the proper way to repair an rv roof and thus began the process of proper repair. First I cleaned all the…

New to the Travco

Good Old Rvs. Ah yes, they sure are classic pieces of art aren't they? 

My name is Adam and I recently purchased a '66 Travco 270. I have been off and on full time in my previous rig 'Gypsy', a '77 Dodge Sportsman 20ft. She was my first home on wheels and I fell in love. Never before had I experienced such freedom and the sense of pride that goes along with owning your own home.

She was my everything for about a year, parked by the river in NV for a month before…

1988 coachman class C rebuild

Here is what our camper looked like after the last trip in sept. 2011.

I finely discovered what happened this spring when I was able to get up there and begin repair assessments.

The previous owner had a serious roof leak, and instead of replacing the whole roof, decided to rip out the front fifteen feet of rubber and ply, and replace it with luan, and then paint…

Awnser to Pat My favorite otr bus

    

     Well Pat , That is a hard question for me.  That Eagle I posted was one that was assigned to me and  kept in St Joseph at the time so kinda like my own. I remember hand waxing that old girl. But later on in years I drove for a company that was part of Arrow stage lines called Chief. They were out of Omaha Ne. and again being the only guy in St Joe they gave me a bus. It was a Prevost I think a late 80s model don't…

Valve Job

Well it's been awhile, but we did the valve job and removed all the air pumps(smogg stuff). Generally cleaned up the engine. The hard starting and rough idle problems are gone. I built a new gas tank from 14 ga steel TIG welded and just like the original .
