We'll the stock market has tanked, the world is in meltdown soooo we bought another rv! Here's the story, ok Blog, of how Miss FunFinder came into our life. Linda and I took our good old class c in for some minor fall rv service to the great folks at
here in Tulsa where we hang our hats part of the year. While we're there we check out all the neat light weight travel trailers. Then that sly Phil Collins says "have your heard or seen the new
Funfinder lightweight towable camper
"? Nope. Sooo, we take a look with Phil and we really like what we see. Long story short we bought the darn thing. 5 reasons why we bought the
light weight travel trailer: - Well made with light weight aluminum construction - Fiberglass bonded Walls - Good interior Layout with a full queen bed, nice dinette and full couch for my old back - Lots of free goodies that we asked for to go with the travel trailer. -
Camperland's excellent, and close by, service department
to do any "tweeking" of the rig that my old back can't do. Here are a few important things we had added (for free!) to Miss FunFinder travel trailer: - Real heavy duty Electric Jack. Otherwise it's 53 cranks up and down. No way with my old back. - Electric jacks on each corner to, hopefully, level and balance Miss FunFinder. - Upgraded battery to power the above. - Weight distributing trailer hitch. (no sway bars. we'll see if that's needed) Now, on any "new" trailer either "new" used travel trailer or a true new one (never had one) there's always some fixin and tweekin to do. So, here's what I consider to be the "first list" of fixin Miss FunFinder before we go down the road. Here's what Camperland either fixed on their own or at our request before take delivery: - Replaced door glass frame. Showing signs of weathering. - Lower left panel diamond place about 1/2 to short exposing interior of trailer. - Lower left corner ragged and slightly bent. - Bathroom window did not go up and down (never fixed) - Light fixture scratch and cover broken in bathroom - Removed fold down bunk above rear couch to save 80# weight (no grandkids so we don't need it) - Paint end of dinette wood trim. Raw wood showing (never fixed) - Bathroom door installed backwards so can't access bathroom without opening slide - Undberbelly not sealed where wiring and water hoses pass into coach... Mouse highway! - Can't fill freshwater tank from hose with exterior filler. Seems like it's designed to have water poured into it by a pitcher or something. No hose connection and hose won't fit into entry. (not fixed/replaced) - Remved and reinforced freshwater tank in underbelly with steel straps. Important that you probably have this done in any newer travel trailer since they are usually only supported at the ends of the plastic tank and we're goin into some hard country with ours dry camping. Check back on our light weight travel trailer blog of "Miss FunFinder" every week to see what we find and upgrade.
