Thanks Becky, I just poke in now and then. I intended to have more to add to our finished trailer but alas, back home, work again, winterizing already and so forth. We head out every Spring for San Diego. The camper worked very well in all respects. fans, stove,water, shower,head,and especially the pull out bed.
At times it was like home. Our dog Daisy has to go out at night and that is a bit of a problem with the door now partially closed off. Dolly has to squeeze through. Our bed opens to a full Queen size now.
Take care, enjoy you writing.
Paris and Dolly vonRabenau

I guess I can say I'm learning when it comes to this camper thing! Ugh! We are finished with the framing on the sides and placed the windows so we can figure out any extra framing etc. (I put up pic) I would have so much fun going to see trailers like that-Rob and I always talk about going to "green" seminars before we build our retirement abode! What a fun excuse to travel and learn. Ideas too!

Becky- sent my uncle a note to you and gave you his email on our "friend" request I sent you.

I'll see if he's interested (My Uncle) I'll drop him an email tonight. I'm so intrigued with ebooks and the whole bit- I teach art to school age youth and have done murals for so long- all the local teachers are always wanting me to come in and help with projects. My two are college and High School! I have been playing with trying one out on but maybe I need to look into your suggestions...

Becky- I'm reading your profile and I think of my Uncle Jim- who lives in Mosas Lake, WA. He travels the US and teaches instinctive shooting to Border Patrol and police groups. His name is Jim Gregg. He also has a hover craft he uses to take groups hunting and fishing. His biz is called C.O.P.S- combat oriented polices schools. My Mom grew up in Chehalis, WA and my Dad in Centralia. Anyway- she always did everything. Hunt, fish, built furniture, raised us, was a wonderful cook and could "fry it up in a pan" as they say. I miss her- she'd be right in on doing this camper with me. WE saw many big RVs this last weekend- my daughter did a Sand Soccer Tournament in Oceanside ,CA (1st place!) anyway- ours looked so small when we drove up the drive! Ha! I kind of like that though.

He had it for sale on Ebay but I actually found it on a vintage trailer site. Then called and bought it direct. The guy had talked the surfers who owned it (original-42 yrs) out of it but realized it was too much wood and fiberglass for him to re-do. Good for me because I don't think I'll get rid of this one once we finish! I have to stay true though and make it a "surf van" in blues and wood and chrome. We even want to "hang" a wooden surfboard down the side that will flip down as an outside bar....

Becky, the mural on my trailer is reminiscent of the wonderful artist Linda Carter Holman. Knew I wanted a mural (lots of dings to disguise) and had a print of hers hanging in my living room, so she was the inspiration. Would love to lie and say that I did the painting but I cannot! A local artist/sign painter took home the print and the trailer and, voila!

Becky, bet Virginia is very lovely this time of year. Sooo glad Koko has a freind to play with. Lady's friend, sugar from down the street, comes by every morning for a romp every morning... which usually entails playing chase with their toy over me while I'm waking up. They're a joy to see having so much fun! HAve a wonderful week! pat, linda & lady dog

hi Koko and Becky. Did you get to rv on your trip with Koko?
At 3:36pm on June 11, 2009, Pat Daly said…
Yes, Lady dog is very knowledgeable about wrenchs and such. She tells me what sizes to use and what to fix next.

Lady says "hi Koko"!

Becky, Lady dog want to know your dogs name and how VanDone is doing. Lady also mentioned to me that she thought you should get a vintage Shasta trailer or the like and tow it behind you van. Lady thinks that this might give you the best of all worlds; a "base camp" in the trailer and the VanDone for mobility. Here is Lady telling me how to take the engine apart... again!

Hey, Becky. Welcome to our rv camping community! See you've visited some real nice areas. We love rving and I particularly love fishing and we will be spending this summer fishing Colorado near Fort Collins in the Pudre river and Redfeather lakes area and then on to washington state for some late summer salmon fishing. We'll post a blog when we start our trip. A few fishing pics in blogs from our Arkansas trip (rained out mostly) and my friend catching a darn weird fish called a spoonbill paddlefish... kinda ugly. Not like the silver bullets off Virginia!
Anyway, we all look forward to seeing any photos and your posts and helping in any way we can.
Oh, I almost forgot. click on the Sisters on The Fly link under Vintage RV Links on the right hand side of the page and see their very neat fishing photos and their vintage campers from all over the US.
