    I've received messages from others. It's not as uncommon as you'd hope! Quality is poor. Construction is poor.

    Camping Branbury State Park, Brandon, Vermont, Lake Dunmore

    It really is amazing. Back in the mid 2000s I used to work for Gannett newspaper company in Pensacola, FL and Gannett asked me to interview in Burlington, VT. I knew VT was up in the corner somewhere but I had to check a map lol. From the moment the plane landed in Burlington I was in awe. I was...

    2015 Honda Odyssey and Air Bags

    The c-frame is definitely a no go anyway for a wdh. So in regard to air bags, they worked marvelously and the drive was excellent especially towing our 1700 lb ‘97 Starcraft. They added up to 1000 lbs of lift. But the ones I bought (air lift 1000) were low quality and did not last thru 1 Vermont...

    2019 Rockwood Manual Winch Install | Electric Winch Be Gone!

    If you remember, last summer while we were yard camping for a week, the electric winch started lifting our popup roof all on its own. It bent the winch mount, it ripped canvas from the roof... so to SAVE the week, I installed a local trailer winch which required a little cutting and a little...

    LEAKING ROOF REBUILD! New Rockwood PopUp Camper Leaking EVERYWHERE!

    At the end of last year, I could see places on the roof that were leaking. Wood was getting wet and damaged. I wasn't surprised. This new Rockwood 2280bhesp had already proven to be assembled in a sloppy rush. And since I did not have good experiences with previous service visits, I decided to...

    We did find a nice blanket-thread nest :) When we first got the camper, I worked on the underside of the popup and sealed all of the holes I could find, but mice are incredibly good at finding a way. Ya never know :)

    Popup Prep 2021 Ep 1 - Mouse Poop and a Customized Harbor Freight Trailer Dolly 22” Tall

    We were surprised to see so much mouse poop all around the popup this spring. But before we can have a look inside, I need to modify a new Harbor Freight trailer dolly so that it’s tall enough to safely reach our Rockwood 2280bhesp. My 9 year old daughter concepted the design. I did my best to...
