Now you need a vintage Power Wagon that has been updated in the Running Gear dept to tow it wilh
For now, I'm gonna tow it with my new late model pickup... Miller and I are gonna do some serious camping this summer... and we are also gonna outfit it to be our event trailer for the HAMB Drags and what not. I'm super, super excited.
You are welcome to come on our annual guy trip to Bowling Green for the Hot Rod Reunion.
Clippers are cool. It’s on my list...
My advice- farm out the polishing...trust me.
Great job Dad!
It's ironic how Millers desire for a vintage camper has also infected his dad,you & your son are going to have a great time together and make memory's that he will share with his children years from now.
I wanted the camping experience with my youngest granddaughter and searched high and low for the same model my grandparents had when they took me camping,a early Shasta was found and we have taken Veda on several camping trips.
I have enjoyed teaching her and watching as she has become more confident with new found skills HRP
We need a high-five smilie!
Trailer looks very nice, and I'm sure Miller will be an expert in no time. Congrats!
when i was younger i didn't consider it a campsite if a car could drive to it, let alone any type of camper. hiking in, with just a sleeping bag, and a fishing pole. now, i consider watching tv in the sun room, camping......
You my friend are not right! HRP
See...I prefer 'rustic' campgrounds. The type of place from which most ppl stay away. I don't need lectric or running water. I do take my tent, too but that's for colder weather.
Yeah... I kind of hate the outdoors.
Camping: Is the art of getting closer to nature while getting farther away from the nearest cold beverage, hot shower and flush toilet.
I served my time sleeping in tents,rain and mud I am a lot older and a little wiser,our little Shasta serves us well. HRP
You will soon find the term "Glamper" as irritating as "Rat Rod".
reminds me of a Jeff Goldblum quote, in one of my favorite movies "the big chill";
zipping up, as he turns toward the camera.
"that is what i love about the outdoors.......it's one big toilet"
I think to prepare for your maiden voyage you should watch a few old movies about campers. Two good ones that come to mind are The Long Long Trailer with Lucy & Desi and Lost in America with Albert Brooks & Julie Hagerty.
