Looking for advice on transforming truck camper...

...into a small trailer. 

I'm selling my truck and buying a van, so I don't need the two camper projects I've gathered.  I only have one set of jacks, so if I get rid of the '68 Frolic, and keep the (approx) '70 Real-Lite, I was thinking of cutting off the cab-over bunk, and slicing off the two feet at the back that currently has no floor and fixing it up and attaching ti to a trailer frame. 

I could leave the two feet on the back, it'll have the trailer floor…

Vintage Yellowstone camper, and metal art.

January 24, 2015

I began to write this blog so I can share my experience of rebuilding my Vintage 60's Yellowstone Camper. My plan is to post videos and pictures of my progress.

One day as I was peacefully ejoying my quiet retired life, my son came home and decided we needed to clean out the garage! We ended up with a large pile of scrap we didn’t know what to do with. Chris got creative and started welding pieces together creating beautiful art. That looked pretty interesting…

1961 Holiday House

I was waiting for it to warm a bit before we went out to work on the Holiday House and I saw this invitation to start a blog. At 62, computers in general, and "new media" in particular are as foreign to me as a foreign language. I have never blogged, or journaled and anything that took time or effort on the computer. As a general contractor by trade, I feel much more comfortable doing the work than talking about it. But what the heck, why not give it a try? 

The story of the Holiday…

1965 FAN!

She's not the Style Liner I've been trying to buy from the 'hoarding farmer' but she's mine!  Soon as it warms up, I'll put my carpenter to work on the mess someone made putting in a microwave--and then roll on a whole lot of Kilz.  Then pick a color that…

Need Help on Load Leveler Hitch Chain Adjustment for Travel Trailer

I've got a queastion about my new load leveler hitch bars. How do I tell how many chain links to tighten up to equalize my hitch and trailer? I'm doing 2nd chain length and it seem ok and pulls very well, but my friend said he thought that it was too tight and seemed that the back of my suv yukon was being pulled up. Any ideas? How tight is too tight and how loose is too loose?

Thanks for helping me figure this out! Pat
