just to let my rv friends know that we stopped the leak in the 1968 travelmaster after I poured the sealant to all the seams and corners. Been working on this for at least 6 mths. We are proud of this rv and wife is out trying to find another one . Keep up the good work and welcome to all the NEW MEMBERS!!!!!

We bought our first camper less than a month ago (2 weeks to be exact) and we are really excited. We had been looking for a “Scotty” for more than a year. Although our Scotty is more than 40 years old he is in pretty good shape. Not really good enough to take on a trip, but certainly weekend worthy. We chose a state park not too far from home, Cloudland Canyon. There were many more parks close by but we had visited all of them and this was a special trip.
At one of our favorite local hangouts and do some dry camping. We have had weddings, Thanksgiving, Easter, birthday parties, family reunions, and just plain old camp outs here. Christal clear spring waterContinue

If you bought a vintage trailer or are looking for one you already know how hard and frustrating it can be. We have all looked on Craigslist either finding a good buy only to find out it is beyond repair or priced way beyond our budget. My wife and I found our 1966 kit for 500.00 and actually were looking at 3 different trailers at the same time. All were priced between 500.00 and a 1000.00 I might add none of these were advertised at all. Sound's interesting huh! My wife thought I was crazy…Continue
Does anyone know where we can get an owners manual? The seller said it was in the RV but it was not.

I got this from a Friend a Few years back when looking for a Vintage Camper. Wishbone
The State of Kansas allowes an antique vehicle to be titled with a bill of sale only. An antique has to be 35 yrs. or older. So, a 1975 or older can be titled in the state of Kansas. You need to have the trailer inspected by the inspection person(s) in your county, take the pink piece of paper, your bill of sale and the insurance card of the towing vehicle to the treasurers office to get a…Continue

Disclaimer: I am NOT an expert on anything. I have spent the past two years researching and reviving a 1957 Yellowstone for MY purposes and am learning a lot along the way. I am always happy to share my own experience to save someone else the “joy” of the learning curve as it were. My background includes ~6 years as a machinist, a lifetime of breaking then fixing things, 5 or 6 classic car restorations, and more recently the lure of the Internet to help bring me answers to new things. …Continue

The new fuel pump I installed now has a pulse. The high pitch noise matches the engine and comes from the pump in the fuel tank. I unplug the pump and fuel guage and the noise stops. This is an 89 Pace Arrow on a P30 frame with a 454. New pump again or is this a common noise? Lowering the tank is the only way to get to it. Help

Real helpful with the topes (speed bumps) in Mexico ,all most no springs last

Many of you no doubt survived through the latest storm that devastated our state of WV and surrounding states. Power was off for days and in many places weeks!
Here is my Ole GMC that is truly a survivor. Big tree limbs fell on top but never caused any damage what so ever!…Continue
It has been pretty hectic here at home. The old GMC camper we worked on has done two excursions and performed flawlessly! We did break down and get a satellite set up because we are TV junkies.
I also have other interests as well. in my little shop in the basement I build custom motorcycles and have been doing so long before American Chopper hit the TV airways. I know that this is a camper forum
but many of the skills I used on the camper came in handy on this…Continue

People tell me it can't be done but it is just 1995 Willderness 21 footer fifth wheeler and a light weight at that . I've seen Toyoto 4 cylinders with a camper chasis. My Ranger has a towing package and has pulled a 21 ft old 69 Holiday Rambler, which is a very heavy camper. What do y'all say? Hadn't put the hitch in yet. I'll let u all know what happens. comments are appreciated if helpful and not discouraging. I'm tired of the nay sayers....
Well another day in the rv world where a manufacture turns ther back on a consumer without seeing or listening to their concerns.You would think that with all the money, and resourses the general public has, just a courteous call would show real honest business practice. So I will resolve myself to spend my resourses elsewhere so I can get a better bang for my buck.
I also want to say that to my fellow rv`er`s do all research possible on Awning `s being purchased. Keep moving on…
