I was given a 1963 Terry 15' travel trailer. After two days of removing the trash, I found massive water damage, no appliances, someone actually drilled holes through the floor, ran 12v wires through it and set a battery inside the camper. There is a 2 gallon black water tank, no grey water tank. The drain for the grey tank is ran through the floor and that is it. The would thing is the camper still has the split rim wheels.
I have been trying to find everything I can on the camper…Continue

we or i should say i, sometimes get frustrated and let my thoughts wander to the idea of downsizing back to a small pull camper since just me and the little lady,but when we go and grand kids come along, it makes nice that if strom comes up ,they all migrate insaide,other wise they sleep in tents we keep on hand, we went with a friend and his wife this summer to place just south of muncie(summit lake) and was reminded how easy for us was to pull in, hook up and done,with our other campers,…Continue

Okay, we're full-timers in a '79 Winnebago and almost NO ONE offers personal property / homeowners insurance for it.
Best we found was through Good Sam but only one out of their 5 companies will even insure such an old rig.
NOTE - THIS IS NOT FOR VEHICLE INSURANCE - this is for all of our personal stuff - IN the rig. Usually considered…Continue

While my camper is in the completely torn down phase and parked at a friends house (no where near me) I get to go out and visit from time to time. I was able to start her up and driver her around a little on his land. It felt great!
Last week the wife and I had to get away for the weekend, it was our deceased son's birthday. Anyway we was riding around the hill's of Ky. when we saw a Avion trailer sitting in a yard. We turned around to look at it and a 71 Avion E-22 followed us home. The wife say's it or the Argosy will have to go. I will hold off as long as I can.
We drove her through the Mojave Desert in 100 deg temps pushing wind and climbing without overheating or any problems.
If I had the time I'd drive this 1948 GM PD 4151-266 Silversides across country.

I have been living in my new to me 1973 Auto Mate Travel Trailer for a few weeks now. I am so new to rv living it isn't funny. I have never slept in an rv til this year.
Neccessity required me to be creative with my living situation and I bought my travel trailer and parked in my own back yard to live in. I am renting out my house.
I have no running water! I filled the tank. and no water. I finally figured out that there…
does anybody own a airstream motorhome with the fiberglass exterior? I have some ???

We are serious about fixing the old gal up.So thus a question,The rubbers around all the windows are deteriorating.…Continue
