German made Tabbert Contessa de

Does anyone have any experience with a German made caravan in the states? A mechanic buddy of mine has a 1989 Tabbert Contessa De. It is a single axle and appears to be made in general UK caravan fashion, ie no wall or ceiling studs. I haven't been able to get pictures yet but of the ones he has shown to me it appears to be in great shape.See More

"Great list of tips. I would also add pressurizing your water system to the list. Never any fun to pull in to the campground for vacation only to find your winterizing missed a pocket of water and burst a line. Last year in my dewinterazation I found…"

"I would rivet it back on. Drill 1/8" holes through the door and the hinge that appears to still be attached to the trailer. Then I'd use 1/8" aluminum rivets to secure the door back to the trailer. If it were mine I would drill out…"

"Bought my Argosy in 2000 for 2 grand. Have put a ton of work into her but not that much money over the years. With the popularity of vintage my Argosys value has been on elevator ride way up. 5 years ago I started carrying agreed value insurance on…"

Drew commented on George Glovier's blog post Grey Streaking
"You can spray it with a 50/50 mix of clorox and water. It will remove the streaks but will also strip the wax from the paint. You will have to re wax any areas that you use this on.  Another option is to use rubbing compound, again you will…"

Making a rock tamer

So back in August the wife and I were pulling our Argosy to my mother in laws house some 60 miles due north. Unfortunately my wife's father had passed so we were going prepared to stay for the weekend. We didn't leave home until after dark on a Thursday evening. So in a construction zone of a two lane stretch of the journey we ran over what appeared to be a painted 2x6x8 laid across our lane of traffic.…
