Ive been asked about the safety factors when towing doubles or even triples on a rare occasion.
I tow a 5th wheel, and tow behind that another vehicle or a pup trailer and sometimes even both.
Some state offices in Licensing don't mention a required Federal law,, requiring the second towed trailer or vehicle must have safety chains or cable to main tow vehicle. We all know about securing safety chains after hitching up,, But when you tow doubles, ( in my case, the 5th wheel and…Continue

After looking at a number of options I chose to roof in the dome with 1/8 inch puck board. It is UV protected, very durable and flexible enough to bend n the curves. It comes in various thicknesses but I have sufficient support under it to allow for the thinner sheet.
Next step is to apply liquid rubber to the sidewalls and base after which I will remove the screws…Continue

We left Spokane, WA on the 17th of July and made it to Portland, to visit with my cousin, had a great time (installed the trailer brake controller in the Dreamer). I towed a car hauler that I already owned; with my sons pick-up and my bicycle on it. Couldn't believe how expensive you can get into a car towing system. The trailer was only a couple of years old & proven reliable. And the little truck with a matching yellow kayak on top and my pontoon boat in the back. All the toys a…Continue
I have an opportunity to pick up a Doug Nash overdrive unit for a good price. I can get a full rebuild kit for it as well. Since its used, I am considering it a rebuild able piece and expect to rebuild it before I install it. I have been considering a custom build OD transmission but, the availability of this unit is making me consider going this way.
I have a 1977 Airstream Argosy 28. Fully restored with a 454 thats bored stroked, balanced and blueprinted to a 496. I also…Continue

I'm working on the titling on this baby -- so maybe another 3 weeks before it's all legally mine and stuff.
I've been to Colorado (first time) and back in the past few weeks and yikes this so looks like a lot of work!
I'll still be working things out - and seeing if I can truly afford to do this project -- or at least get it covered up for the winter and work on it next summer?
If anyone is looking for a project and just loves Kencrafts and is…Continue
With 80% of the exterior repaired it is time to tackle the roof. There is so much tar and dried glue that there are only two options. Replace the whole roof or put a 1/2" skim of plywood over the existing roof. I chose option two and will get to it as soon as I have prepared the…Continue
Hi Everyone. Hope you all are having a great Friday. I am so pleased & happy to be a part of the Good Ole' RVers. I have been following yens for quite some time. I said these are my kind of Folks!
I need to take out my passenger window on my 1976 Winnebago Brave. I would ever be so grateful
if someone could tell me what to do. I am having a blast of reviving her back to life. Her name is Ethel. She runs great. Okeedokee, again, thanks for having me & looking forward…Continue
I have an opportunity to purchase a solar panel at a great price. My problem is that I am not sure if it is warranted. It is a 40 watt unit. Is that overkill for charging a standard deep cycle battery?
Just wondering if anyone has one or had one? We use it several times a year to tow a 20' Bayliner to one of the many lakes in Arizona. Enjoy the A/C when not fishing or towing kids and grandkids. We have made many upgrades and changes to meet our needs.
So it's been awhile since we've had a chance to do an update here as it's been a very busy summer with Bertha. The first trip to Winslow Park in our backyard of Freeport Maine went really well and gave us the confidence to take her on a longer trip (100 miles) to Lake Winnipesaukee NH, where Karin's mother has a house right on the lake. The drive was great & uneventful, and we had another great weekend camping in her with a full house of us & 3 teen daughters. We camped in her…Continue
