Memory lane with an old RV.

The greatest thing about getting a project RV,, isnt just to take something thats unique or different and re-do or rebuild.

It goes deeper then that. A lot of us here on GORV's, are the Baby boomer generation, (some older,, some younger). But our age group grew up wayyyyy before computers and color TV's especially flat screens.

During our younger years,, we watched Dad go to work, Mom stay home and hold the fort down and raise the kids. (excluding single moms and dads etc)  We…

Friendly competion between friends.

I have a old friend Ive known for many many years,, and hes a Diehard Bumper puller or go home in shame type of guy. He hates,, and I do mean Hates 5th wheel RV's. He complains that they have sooooooo much wasted space and harder to pull,, very unstable when towing, etc.

Total justafiable RANT

Ok peeps,,, I have to rant on this one.

When you are going to TOW a bumper pull trailer, Please Use the correct Hitch ball. Never ever expect a 1 7/8ths ball will work where a 2 inch or 2 7/8ths ball is required.

Use the correct hitch ball,, put in a lock pin on your hitch, criss cross BOTH safety chans and connect the break away cable to the reciever hitch,, and make sure your lights are plugged in and…
