Well we are still full-timin. Traded the TT for a class A,sold it,moved to Texas and bought an '81 Executive class A 38 ft Dodge M600 chassis 440-3 motor. Will be here for the forseeable future. Oh yes,we still live in it. Parked at my wife's mothers. Have several projects to work on. Will post pics when I get another harddrive. This one is way too small,only good to surf with. Ed

New Aristocrat

Hi everybody - I think this is one of the best RV websites around. We just bought a 1970 lowliner that has been completely re-done inside and out. I think its over kill and I spent way to much money for it. We still have our 66 lowliner and plan to sell one of them. (?) My question is this - the 70 lowliner is vary heavy and I pull it with a 86 3/4 ton chevy suburban the problem is I'm getting a lot of sway. I have installed a sway bar and shorten the hitch but it still is a little wobbly.… Continue

Should I buy This Classic Class C RV?

Well, ever since we wrecked our bumper pull travel trailer and suv on Colorado's grooved pavement a few months ago we've been in search for a good old Class C. Since I usually screw up buying classic campers, I though I'd ask my friends on goodoldrvs.com to give me their recommendations on buying a used class C motorhome. I found a 1989 Cobra Class C in Texas on Craigslist with a little over 30,000 miles on… Continue

1988 Winnebago Warrior restoration project

My wife and I have recently purchased a 1988 Winnebago Warrior motorhome based on a Toyota chassis. It is in desperate need of a interior refurbishing as well as some minor work on the exterior.

I have started another blog at www.toyota-motorhome,blogspot.com to document my process. We would like to take it to Florida next winter, so that is my motivation to get it completed. I will continue to update my blog with any… Continue

I could use some help!

I've got my eye on an old camping Trailer that has been just sitting behind a farmers barn for the past several years. The weeds have grown up around it and I know it has not been moved in the past 3 to 5 years.



I'm looking for a vintage camper to rehab as a project, and use for camping. What should I be looking for when evaluating an old trailer like this? I'm not afraid of having some work to do, but I don't want to put time and money into a bad trailer either. I know enough to… Continue

Medical Care and Hospital Warnings

In all the years I've camped I've never had any problems with hospitals allowing me to park and spend the night while visiting family or friends who were sick, and that I had to travel out of town to see. When I need a place to park while traveling through strange cities I often look for a hospital or Wal-Mart because I know they're open 24/7, I can find food, wifi and a security guard if needed and because most welcome travelers. Hospital cafeterias, if you didn't know it, have the best and… Continue

Kings Highway Maiden Run

Hi everyone. We took our coach out for its first run up to Big Bear Lake last weekend. It was a good shake out for the old motorhome. The weather was fantastic and we wish we could of stayed all week. We stayed at the Serrano campground witch is right across from the lake. If your ever in Southern California don't miss it. Hope you all have a great Labor Day weekend. Amy + Frank

Holiday in France

Hi everyone,



We have returned from our holiday in France - but the Sportsman came home earlier than us, due to a broken clutch!



The interior living of this MH is superb and we (David and I) plus our two grandchildren aged 7 & 9 found lots of space for us all. We just need to update the front bit i.e. gear box and noise!



The MH world in France is great. They have "Aires" specially for MH's, really large "car parks" with electriciy hook ups, fresh water, grey… Continue

Good truck for pulling?

Dear All,

We are shopping around for trucks that have enough 'umph' to pull our 77' Prowler. According to the note on the trailer, it weighs 6000 lbs. dry. We've heard good things about the Toyota Tundra with the bigger engine. But we also heard that going uphill, the front can lift up. Any recommendations? We've never owned a truck before (just cars and SUVs).
Thanks for your insight!
