It's all over the internet, Walmart, Cabela's, Outdoor World and Cracker Barrell are going to prohibit, if not already, the overnight rest parking for RV's.
2 Walmarts in Waco area along with Cabela's have banned over night campers, Due to a few DIRT Bag retards, Yes I said retards, because these type people are Not right in the head. Store manager had to have Hazmat crew on standby while he had several employees power wash a section of the parking lot. All because a couple brain dead…Continue
hello all. I just purchased this motorhome. It’s in pretty amazing shape for its age. I am excited about this new project. I am going to start with a good cleaning of the inside and out. I am going to do run some sea foam through the engine and fuel system, followed by a full tune up and possible brake replacement on the front. I am interested in any information you all may have on this particular task that I have undertaken. I look forward to chatting with you all about…Continue

So a little back story. I am very very new to RVing!! I love vintage RVS or I should say anything Vintage. My obsession started a couple of years ago and when I saw some show on TV. (I have no idea the name of) We love to camp. We don't get to do it often maybe twice a year, but I think that's because sometimes we just want to go for the day or maybe just 2 and the thought of setting up everything and taking it all back down the next day just doesn't appeal to us. So an RV or TT would be…Continue
Still working on the old buggy. The inexpensive stabilizer works great. This is a 1985 Chevy G-30 van chassis and am trying to install the Air Lift 1000 in the front coils to level up the front end and ease the loading on the shocks. Their web site says to stuff the bellows in between the gap in the coils, not open enough, and the hole in the lower control arm seems too small also. Is it necessary to remove the lower control arm to install? Any experience with this out there? Thanks C
Does anyone have a good way to clean the grey streaking on a painted aluminum trailer?
Finally had a warm day, 38 degrees and basically no wind so I got the ceiling tore out and 2 of the panels cut.
Warning about RV Nation. They had the padded vinyl material. Started to order 3 yards of it and when i got into the checkout process, they were going to charge me $201 for shipping on $58 worth of product. Uhmm nope, ain't goona happen.
Found a place called All Vinyl Fabrics. They had a padded marine vinyl. Little more expensive, it cost me $75 but…Continue
We traveled down to Yuma, Arizona last week, and I wanted to share a couple of places for free camping. I am traveling with two other RVers that are planning on taking advantage of 'medical tourism'. Between us we are getting dental work, eyeglasses and medications filled. Los Algodones is very popular for those things with snowbirds. Many stay near the border crossing at the Que Casino which offers free boondocking, but is crowded and noisy. We opted to stay further out and try out some…Continue
Looking for a little advice/experience on improving the drivability of a class C 1985 Mallard. Drives perfect on a smooth road, no traffic & or wind. Trying to sift through the steering stabilizer, shock, Air Lift conundrum becomes baffling after a while. Obviously the suppliers are a great source of info, HUH!
Yours Truly C& D aboard " Adrift". Still on the prowl for September.

Something different other than travel but I do wish the Browns would just go somewhere!

Incredible week (and a half) out here so far. I wasn't sure what to expect but despite the isolation, I have to say everything is much more intense than I anticipated. I don't think I've managed to capture it in photos yet, but the desert is beautiful. Yes, it's very dry, very rocky, but the play of colors and textures has caught me in awe more than once.…Continue
I'm a little slow with my report, but I made my final destination on Thanksgiving, and found "the tribe". For those of you that don't know, I'm doing my thesis research on solo female RVers and vandwellers. So while my ultimate destination is the Rubber Tramp Rendezvous (RTR) in Quartzsite, my final physical destination was Ehrenberg, AZ, 17 miles west of Quartzsite. There, on BLM land the 14 day rule is in effect, but not enforced.
So, many RVers that are going to the two…Continue
So back in August the wife and I were pulling our Argosy to my mother in laws house some 60 miles due north. Unfortunately my wife's father had passed so we were going prepared to stay for the weekend. We didn't leave home until after dark on a Thursday evening. So in a construction zone of a two lane stretch of the journey we ran over what appeared to be a painted 2x6x8 laid across our lane of traffic.…Continue

I have to say the first leg of my trip, from Asheville, NC to Denver, CO was stressful and there were several times I was close to turning around and packing it in. Those that I've caught up with on chat have had the dubious honor of providing emotional support. In addition to the strangeness of sleeping in new places every night, I was dogged by a mechanical issue that still hasn't been resolved (I'm on my fifth mechanic now and just won't know whether the last fix resolved the issue…Continue
Hi everyone, we just joined. I have a 1981 33 RB. Factory handicapped accessible unit. The Apollo is in very good original condition. I am trying to figure out the value of the unit. It has handicapped driving controls. Extra wide accessible door with lift. No dents or rust. Has all the extras including dual furnaces, dual air , Onan generator airbags automatic levelers etc. which work. It even has the original microwave with the browning element inside on top that works, as does the…Continue
