Has anyone ever heard of a 1969 Wildcat made by Wildcat Travel Trailer inc made in Elkhart IN? I am looking for more information and any other owners out there to connect with to get tips and tricks to this camper.

Lets call it what it really is......RV Age discrimination

Today I called the BBB to discuss with an agent about this RV park age discrimination that goes on here in California RV parks. I was informed that this was a 100% legal practice and free from the ANY discrimination law. After I picked my jaw up from the ground, I remembered what another member of this site told me, she basically enlightened me to the sad fact… Continue

Simply heartbroken

Well it seems my dreams have been shattered. I was to purchase a 1983 Winnebego Pace Arrow, the body was great engine good and it was ready for me to customise to not only accomodate my disability (I'm a returning Wounded Warrior) the older model is far better for the changes I needed. Today I told the guy I must let it go, due to the fact that I can NOT find a RV Park that will let me stay a while, why? well it's undesirab;e becaue it's older...What's next people?

working 003.jpg working 007.jpg

I bought two Glastron Motorhomes on June 30 of this year. One is a 1969 and one is a 1970. No real difference between them but I can use some parts off of them to swap if they are any good. So far the 1969 has the most potential…

Back from our First Little 2 day trip to try out the Motor Home

First of all we had a great time and did not want to leave but had some business to look after today that could not wait or we would still be at the Georgian Bay! When we got home I actually sat in the MH for over an hour in the driveway making little to do lists before we head out again!

On our travels we saw a lot of older ones on the road so there are a lot of them out there thats for sure!

While setting up tho we had a mishap and the awning pull down strap…

new 318 poly exhaust manifold

As luck would have it, I was talking (whining) about trying to repair or find a replacement 318 poly exhaust manifold at a local parts store, and one of the staff mentioned having a 1965 318 at home. He called the next day with the manifold removed and we bought it for $60.00. It lines up with the old manifold and should hopefully be a good fit. From the photos you can see the new and old… Continue
