Thanks for the welcome! We are excited to get started on our Fireball! It seems to be in great shape, cabinets/handles, appliances (minus fridge), windows, heater, etc. are all original in look great! My husband insisted we have double axles on whatever I found so I'm sure he appreciates them too. The previous owner had the original rims (minus the baby moons sadly) so we're working on restoring them. I'm so excited to watch and learn from everyone here!
Hi Pat; I love the conversions depicted on your webpage. To be honest I would far prefer to do a restoration of a vintage motor-home than front the money for a new rig. Most motor homes spend about 95% of their lives parked in someones driveway/shelter, with very low milage. Thanks for all your help in showing me around. Don
Hello Pat, I received your message about featuring my 1948 Spartan on Members Restoration Area but I don't see it when I go to home page. Thanks for the comments. The wood is birch paneling with a fruit wood stain.
Thanks Pat... so far things have gone well...even the black water thing. You got me curious now though, we will have to get that movie and check it out! One thing we have noticed though is our gray water tank is so small! The showers are going to be short! ☺
Hi Pat: Thanks for the suggestion & comment on The Dutchmans. I guess he is in luck with a vintage Shasta. Wow lucky for him. I'm big on recycling and trying to make the most out of what is available. I take to heart having a keepsake (Custom Vehicle) burn down. I think the anger and fearful precautions set in after learning of my fire cause. So to help someone first hand rebuild is the least I can do. Thankfully he wasn't a full time RV'er. As for building something from the the beginning, well my Tandem Axel TearDrop camper is moving right along. I'm calling it "Tremble" .If you ever get the Dutchmans address I'll send hime a case of beer anyway.
Hello and thanks for adding me to this group. I;m excited to learn as much as I can about vintage trailers. Yes, I own a small RV park in Missouri. I get to have fun with campers ever day...and I have to tell you, I only seem to get the very best and friendliest campers. Aren't I lucky. Here's my FaceBook page: https://www.facebook.com/PheasantAcresRVPark and here is my webpage: http://www.pheasantacresrv.com/ Trout fishing is two miles from me on Maramec River. It is a beautiful stream which the photos on my sites will attest to. Later...as a camper is pulling in right now.
Thanks' for the Holiday Blessing Pat. Merry Christmas! If you like Christmas Music, the web site surfmusic.de has a "Christmas Music" selection in it's genres offerings'. Good music is always nice at the Holidays.
Pat, We just bought a "Rolite" camper. I am looking to refurbish the gears, chains and drive train to make the camper operational again. Are you acquainted with anyone who knows of parts to restore it? I haven't been able to find parts online.
