Henry's Elastomeric &/or Snowroof?

These are two products I don't find much said about, although both specify that they are good for RV roofs.

Any experience or opinions?

Why I had to reup

To my surprise, I was dropped from this site, so I rejoined and have been approved.  My Profile was still intact so I guess I'm in again.  I have a question about the MIL strength of diamond plate to put on the front of my camper.  What MIL is good to deter damage to the diamond plate from rocks?

How do I know I am buying the right siding pattern on-line

Does anyone know the siding pattern on a 65 Aladdin. It is so confusing on-line and I do not want to purchase and ship the wrong one.

Ive been told to measure the distance in inches form break to break (not 100% sure what that means) however, I do not have the camper in our possession right now. Does anyone know? it may be the same for 60's shastas

I am making custom Retro Knobs and Drawer Pulls

These are just samples of what I can do. You can see more photos at this web site on Etsy where I sell them…

Happy Trails Leads to Tragic Ending

Well, I honestly don't know where to start. First, we are alive, and all 3 babies are alive and ok.

  We started our morning off by finishing up for everything we needed to do, loaded the trailer on the hitch, my husband Greg took a couple of pictures of us in the toaster and ready to go. Life was good until 20 miles down the road on the freeway to Oregon.

  Going 60 mph in a 70, she started to sway out of control. I was slowing down tremendously as she was…
