First time Rv buyers.

I  was asked by a few friends over the years,, what do I look for when buying a used RV,,,Motor home, trailers. (which includes bumper pulls and 5th wheels).

I first look at over-all structure. Looking for damage, especially water damage.

I walk around the outside looking at the siding , and looking underneath at the under carriage. This will include, holding tanks (if equipped).

I will check the tank drain valves for easy movement and any leakage.

I look at the…

She had a loft area for her bed and tiny kitchen with a single sink, A table top single cooking burner that runs off small coleman…

Lessons Learned the Hard Way - Part 4

The past few months have been some of the hardest for Good Ole George and I - both emotionally and financially. Was planning on heading for warmer climates as I can't stand the cold. Then my brother-in-law fell off a trailer and broke his neck so headed to Washington State to help out as the hospital they air-flighted him to was an hour and a half from their home. He had an angel watching over him that day. He was in surgery approx. 14 hours but came through with…

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!

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.
