Fireball Lovers

Hi All,

I just bought a 72 Dodge Fireball Class C Motorhome - Sweet Gypsy Rose aka Rose aka Queenie. Are there any Fireball lovers/owners out there who would like to start a group - both Trailers and Motorhomes?  I'd love to hear from fellow Fireball enthusiasts.

Thanks much,

Cheers!!

My 1992 Toyota Warrior towing our 1994 Mercury Capri

WePulled our Capri from Inverness Fl. to Pittsburgh Pa without any problems. It was a little slow going over the mountains in West Virginia and Virginia. We did manage to pass a few tractor trailers that were going slower than us.

Lost the escape hatch lid

I recently bought a 1985 Real-Lite truck camper.  While I was getting it home, the escape hatch lid blew off and I couldn't find it.

I am having a terrible time finding a replacement.  I ordered from Hengs, but it wasn't quite right.  Too big and the hinge was wrong.  The opening is 17 x 24.

Any advice where I could find it?  Is it easier to just replace the whole unit?

Thanks for any help,

Amy

Four year summer project

In 2014 I committed my wife and myself to a “summer project”: restoring a 1964 Fireball Meteor travel trailer.  How hard could it be, I asked myself.  It was only 13’ long; the videos I watched fucused mainly on woodworking skills; anmd I found what looked to be a likely candidate on eBay.  The seller, Todd Anderson of Salt Lake City, Utah sold a book and CD about how to restolre one in a couple of weeks.  He adsvertised it as well maintained, ready to go camping,…

Moab to Twin Falls Idaho

Well not many problems between Utah and Idaho. Bad winds and freeway construction made it exciting at times. Resting for a few days before on to Oregon and if we live the summit at Pendleton I'll be back with more. I hate Cabbage Hill, don't know if down is worse than up.

German made Tabbert Contessa de

Does anyone have any experience with a German made caravan in the states? A mechanic buddy of mine has a 1989 Tabbert Contessa De. It is a single axle and appears to be made in general UK caravan fashion, ie no wall or ceiling studs. I haven't been able to get pictures yet but of the ones he has shown to me it appears to be in great shape.

Our travels for 2018

Well we are back on the road again after spending the winter, if you can call it that, in Tucson. Stay in one place longer than we ever have. It was nice to rest for four months in the sunshine. Started heading north on the 15th stopped in Show Low for a few days. Went to see the sights and hold off the winds. We are currently in Holbrook AZ for three days to go day tripping to Canyon de Chelly and the Petrified Forest NP. Winds are coming back tomorrow with gusts…

Ideas on long term storage safety

It seems the thieves are rampant,, stealing trailers all over, No matter what kind of lock you have on the hitch, they have figured a way to tear it off and off they go with your investment. In comments, reply how you secure your trailer of rig for safe storage.

I gave up on tongue locks, Got expensive replacing them after someone tried to tear it off and was possibly disturb and couldnt finish.

I rely on a chain thru BOTH rear wheels, across the axle, criss cross so when they…

1992 5th Wheel Holiday Rambler Imperial 36'

I don't know if I am old enough to be vintage, but I went from a 1994 Class C to a 1992 5th wheel.

I have no idea why Holiday Rambler quit building 5th wheels, mine seems super solid.

At my blog I've been writing about the 5th wheel and for 8 years I wrote about wandering in my Class C at:…
