A buyer goes shopping.

We pull up to look at an RV bumper pull (B/P) that was advertised locally here for approx $4,000. This is a 1999 model 30 ft.

Typical ad says, was used for a short time while house was being built, and stored under an RV steel shelter cover. Well taken care of, all maintenance done on regular basis, Has roof top a/c (barely used), ducted furnace, (barely used), 3 burner stove top and oven,(oven only used once).

Reality in camping as a part timer to a full timer

So ,,,you want to Full Time? Or Maybe Part time,(seasonal).

There are a bazzillion trillion tips online of what to expect. Ive read a lot of  *TIPS,, and most of these are from Dealers and sales people. And with basic statistics, 97.5 of these Experts have never roughed it in anything older then a year old rig. They show on their video's parking in a fairy tale clover field with birds singing and fish splashing in a quiet pond, with no one else around for 300 miles. The night sky is…

Upgrading with old. Slight humor

Is it Logical Spock? Twisted humor

It was an exciting month for GORV's May. that is,, and into June to be fair,

What I have lernt,(non politically correct spelling mind you) is You can secure a wobbly antennea on a class C by finding a spare lag screw in the ole tool box and driving it into the front corner and then affixing a zip tie to hold it. That in itself is a feat of engineering. Can you imagine the time it must have taken them to sit down and using their algebra and trig education along with a 1st year college…

RV trailer, Shokem absorbers, (humor)

I started off this morning,, by getting up early,,(gasp, I know right,, scared me to). I actually got up before noon thirty five. I chuck some 40 weight and inhale some toast and being all energetic I head outside to take measurements of the RV's shocks, I lay out my tarps and crawl underneath with tape measure in hand and a pen and paper. Started off really good,,, inspecting the shocks and noticing the wasps, bees and bugs are out early to. Now who wouldda thunk it? Well, I was doing my…
