    When you go camping use an insect repellant called Cutter, it works. Back to the garage and the A v/8

    Boy howdy that is turning out nice. If It has't already been done I think I would fab a cover for the ac that matched the shape/design of the trailer a lot better.

    We made the coast in only two days despite a gnarly thunderstorm around Tucson.

    My wife and I just did our first little camping trip in ours...612 miles and 3 cans of bug spray! But my camper is nowhere near as nice...

    So where is a good site to research these types of camper trailers?

    Thanks,

    I found this one through an expired craigslist ad. It’s a wild story and I made all sorts of stupid mistakes... but Lucky and John basically saved me.

  19. How did you like that? We have some good ones here this time of year. That was part of a tropical storm and not really a monsoon. It's gets rockin' here sometimes.

    Clean off. The wallowed out wheels looks as though the lug nuts weren’t tight. 100% my fault for not checking.

    Thankfully I’ve got John and Lucky helping or I’d be screwed.

    My view right now:

  24. Fit's in with the recent thread, you picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel, your not the first guy to be in this situation. HRP
     
  25. Did the trailer get hurt inside or just that glorious outer metal?

    We slept in Las Cruces, NM last night. Tonight we should be just outside of Ft. Davis, TX at Prude Ranch if everything goes well.

  29. I know I am going to offend some Airstream guys but man the front of that camper is far and away better looking. HRP
