Our "new" Old VW Westfalia Camper Bus...

While on a National Parks vacation last year we saw old VW buses everywhere and they all looked like they were stuck in a time warp, back to a simpler time when camping just meant being outdoors and spending time by a campfire with the family.

Our old bus rolled off the assembly line in 1969… There was No personal computer, No WWW Internet, No Video Games, No Cell Phones, Not a single “luxury”…Basically to me what it might have been like going camping with the Skipper on Gilligan’s… Continue

We made it home alive!

RV Service in Alva, Florida

There is an RV dealer in Alva, Florida at 6345 State Road 80 it's about 10 miles west of the town of LaBelle. They won't rake you over the coals for parts and service. They will drop what they are doing for a vacationing family to do what they can for you. And are glad to share knowledge to the do it your self type, and if your an RV'er that's normal.

I retired from there last year but still go in to consult (for free I might add) if a real nightmare shows up (I liked nightmares) They are… Continue

Help! I need siding for my shasta!

I just purchased a vintage 1966 shasta. I drove all the way to Prescott, AZ to pick the trailer up. Once I got there I found the exterior of the trailer to be a little more damaged than I expected. I went ahead and purchased the trailer because the interior was so great. I need help on finding someone to restore the exterior aluminum siding or finding the siding to replace myself....

Any suggestions would be great!

Should be 50psi all around cold says the… Continue
