I really disliked the 1980s patterns on the walls of my Minnie Winnie. I went to WalMart and purchased three rolls of Contact Paper in the black and white speckled granite pattern along with two rolls of Contact Paper floral patterned tape to use as trim. It was easy to put up, has held up very well and is washable. I started in the bedroom and liked it so much that I ended up doing the bathroom and kitchen, too. What do you think?…Continue
I just discovered some dry rot in my trailer. It's a very small spot but I don't want it to get any bigger. Previous owner said it leaked in the past but they fixed it. I'm wondering about the best way to find out exactly what is leaking. I've put a tarp over it for now. Any suggestions would be very welcome. Thanks!
During our travels this summer we stopped at Virgin Valley for the night. One of our favorite camp grounds, where we met Mike. He was living in the back of his truck, enjoying life and the people he met. As with most folks we meet and like, we said stop by if you get out to the Oregon coast. Well a couple weeks after we got home Mike showed up and stayed in his truck at our shop for a couple of weeks waiting for a appointment at the VA hospital. Joy and I being GORV folks thought Mike…Continue

Hoping to get some help with sourcing brake drums. All four drums are blown - unrepairable - and I need to find replacements. Fronts need to take 12" 2" and the backs take 13" x 2.5". I've had my mechanic looking for the past couple of days and they can't find anything that will work.
Thanks in advance!!
Shepherdstown, Antietam, Harpers Ferry, Sharpsburg and Gettysburg - names of formerly unknown little towns that played major roles in the Civil War. If you are a Civil War buff or if you just like to explore quaint little towns - this is the area for you! Each town is just a short drive from the Baltimore/Harford County area which makes it…Continue
Well... After three 1986 Allegros I will say good bye Good Old Rv AND HELLO 2001 Allegro.... still love no slideouts. Safe Travels
Got my used 1995 21ft fifthwheeler a few months ago. I figure to hit the roads in it in a couple of years when I start drawing my retirement checks. Even tho it is old it looked new. Right now I'm customizing it to me and my husband . So far I've added a blow dryer that hooks to the wall and a under the counter toaster oven. I plan on putting a better mattress in it because the one thats in there is just not good for these old bones. I plan on getting a 19 inch Flat Tv to mount on the wall,…Continue

People stop and look at the back of my RV. I see them in the parking lot of Waffle House when I am eating breakfast - stopping and sometimes pointing. I like that. I hope I am bringing back some favorite memory. You see, I have become stuck on stickers - oval ones that tell where I have been, round ones that represent my favorite music, square ones that let everyone know what I stand…

I am researching vintage fabric and have found a couple of good sites, but so far I have not found a fabric that really WOWS me. Any suggestions on good sites OR places to go to purchase fabric for curtains and/or upholstery in the SOCA area? We are about 20 mins North of San Diego.

The trip to the mechanic ended better than I anticipated. Two new batteries, new belts, tune-up, fluids, new wiper blades, installation of my license plate (which coincidentally has three letters and three numbers…..wait for it…the letters are SHE. I love it when the cosmos conspires to support me!) All for less than $200. The downside is that the mechanic told me She has lots of things that were jerry-rigged and he is concerned about me driving long…Continue
George (Ms. Toiga and George) had two minor accidents recently due to the poor rear view provisions inherent in most RVs. Many RVs have rear view cameras now, and the prices have come way down on these, but I wonder if there could be something better? In the early 1970s there was talk of rear view periscopes! With the right array, one could have rear viewing comparable to front vision all in one place, instead of drivers, passengers, center, and many times blind spot mirrors. Has any…Continue
