Up to 50% of heat in your RV can be lost through single pane windows. Installing double pane windows is not in the cards for this old boys wallet. So, what to do? Bubble Wrap, of course.
I've been using bubble wrap for years in our trusty old cooler in summertime. Ice lasts about 1.5 day in it. After getting a delivery one day from Harbor Freight I was left with a nice sheet of bubble wrap. It was just about the size…Continue
Lately I've been thinking about what caused our wreck in Colorado. Could it be that the GMC Yukon's ABS breaking system overrode the brake controller so that the trailer brakes did not engage? Is this possible?
We really want to get on the road again but can't seem to get over our near death experience. Maybe we could if we can learn what caused the…Continue
Well, ever since we wrecked our bumper pull travel trailer and suv on Colorado's grooved pavement a few months ago we've been in search for a good old Class C. Since I usually screw up buying classic campers, I though I'd ask my friends on goodoldrvs.com to give me their recommendations on buying a used class C motorhome. I found a 1989 Cobra Class C in Texas on Craigslist with a little over 30,000 miles on… Continue

Being an old "ad hack" and retro camper guy I've always loved vintage RV and vintage camper logos so I thought I'd start a blog here and ask folks like you to add vintage rv logos, posters, book covers or anything else you think is cool, vintage and retro. Thanks for adding your additions here.
Just click on the little "black camera" logo above your comments to add yours!
Note: pizel sizes of 300 by 280 pixels or so work best. If…

Don't camp at Twelve Oaks campground because if you do you may stay forever; many folks here seem to have set down stakes for good. We're here at Twelve Oaks RV Resort in Sanford, Florida about 12 miles from the Orlando. Just about right; 20 minutes to Disney and Orlando, the airport or only 30 miles to ocean… Continue

Well, it's 11 degrees including wind chill at the Cabin so we're leavin for the sunny isles of Florida. One of the first things I always do is a complete walkaround of the travel trailer and my trusty old GMC Yukon. I always check the tires carefully, particularly the Korean tires on the travel trailer. I'm a made in USA kinda guy, I guess. Found travel trailer tires at 42 pounds, 38 pounds, 46psi, and 45psi. Should be 50psi all around cold says the… Continue

We met some wonderful people at the Lakeside KOA just north of Fort Collins. And, they had some neat stuff! Check out the very custom generator mount for our friends from Elko, Nevada. Perfect for any 5th wheel. Anybody know of a company that makes such a neat rear mount genny bracket? Let us know in Forums. Most 5th wheelers need one. And, the very trick recumbent (sp?) bike was customer built in Wisconsin for our other rv friends featured here. Add… Continue
