Love what you'v done with your trailer. Birch is a great ideal. I have a hired 1969 yellowstone, but I don't think my hubby is as excited about it as I am. I'll show him your pics. This is our first camper, what a

Hi Lisa - nice to talk to another Terry owner.  Yes-my cabinets do have a toe kick at the bottom.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  I am in the process of getting some pictures together.  I just bought the camper a few months ago and only work on it every other weekend.  So far, we have replaced the entire ceiling and put black and white tile in the bathroom floor.  From the pictures, your camper looks exactly like mine.....even the color of the stove!  :)  Just curious as to what kind of furnace you are putting in it now?  We put a furnace/air conditioner underneath of the long sofa.  We plan to take the old furnace out and use the space as storage.

Thanks for your insight. Did you do any metal reinforcing? My huband knows how to weld and my father-in-law has a torch. We kinda want to add support. Again the craftmanship of this thing is suprisingly chinsey. I swear we are going to replace everything by the time we are finished. I like your pics, that is alot of work, and inspiration!

Greetings Craig and Lisa! Thank you for welcoming us! Your rv sounds super neat! This weekend we were ripping out carpet and dry rot! Its really exciting that their are other people who have fallen in love with an old rv too! I cant wait to go through and see what everyone has done. And about the duck issue, ironically the only graduation we went to this year was at osu for my cousin!

Lol, thanks but I'm an old lady of 46.  In addition to that son-in-law I have 3 daughters(18, 20 and 22) and a grandson who will be 3 in October. Can't wait to take him camping! He already thinks the camper is about the coolest thing since juice boxes.

Hi, thanks for the reply.  Where are you in Portland???  Dreaming today on my way to work about getting the old girl detailed and painted [in time]---  also hope to get the old decals.  I'm so excited.  Will love to hear about camping ideas.

Thanks for the happy greeting and welcome.  My name is Yohanna.  I have a 1965 Aloha 16 ft. that I've been restoring for several years.  It's my little Zen Temple and it's just cute.  Now I'm seeking a bigger trailer, to possibly live in, like a 50's Airstream or Streamline.  Do you know about the Rollin' Oldies Vintage Trailer group?  They are a local (PDX, Salem, Eugene, etc) vintage trailer group. We have rallies during the summer, where you bring your trailer for the weekend and camp, then there's an open house to tour as many trailers as you can in a few hours.  It's wonderful to see all the rigs in various stages of restoration.  There are some amazing ones, and some relatively plain but all are wondrous.  ROVT is on Facebook. Good to meet you.  Yohanna

Craig and Lisa,


Thank you for your note.I love old Flx's. I have owned a 1945 Clipper ( needs lots  and lots of work) for bout 18 years and have done nothing to her except drive her around Oregon. She was RV'ed in 1950 and is in it's original condition. Since my heart trouble, about 8 years ago, she has been in storage . Now that I am feeling a lil better I want to start a redo. Anyway thanks for the note. It"s always nice to hear from peope who loves these old beautiful buses. Let's keep in touch.

I've retired for a few years (which, for a freelancer, is not marked by a specific date) and my wife just this spring has retired from her work.  We've traveled in Europe and Asia together plenty, but living in a travel trailer together (with very few motel nights) is something like working on a job together.  It is nothing like taking a cruise or a tour.  All logistics, all maintenance, all set-up and tear-down is a cooperative event.  We're very good together, but I'm not gonna lie -- it's taken 38+ years.  We're having a ball.

Thanks for the kind comments! Re my '63 mobile scout's condition, those pics are the day after I towed it home. So that is the (fairly good) condition I bought it in.


I did not know this would be such a project and I don't even have a garage/shop it will fit in! It does have water damage around most of the windows and the roof vents, but not too bad. The worst is on the back window.  Anyone know where I can get replacement birch sheets?


You guys have done amazing things with the Terry! Wow. It's going to be a beauty when it's done. You are an inspiration, but I don't think I'm that talented to do such a large restoration job!  Maybe (I hope!) my trailer is in OK shape. I will tear off that birch in the back and see how she looks.


Thanks again for the pics and information!
