Just got back from a short hop trip for the Christmas holiday. We call them mini vacations. Did not have any set driving plans, just stayed close to home to save gas money and ended up in Paridise, CA. We still love camping in our motorhome anyway. Rain on the roof and "I love a Mystery" on the radio. A trip to Oregon for Thanksgiving was our "big" vacation for the year. The motorhome ran like a champ and it was a great trip. Lots of fun with family.

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.

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 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

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
