    Road Trip

    Well...3034 miles in my truck, 452 miles on the motorcycle, stops in NM, WY, CO, and SD and I am back home. Went a little off the schedule that my wife and I had set up but that is what adventure is all about. Rolling with what makes you feel happy. And happy we were. The pup pulled nicely...

    Road Trip

    Just put new tires on it last week. The old tires did not show signs of uneven wear, just some dry rot. So I felt it was best to go ahead and change them out. Gas stops are all planned out and my wife and I will be swapping out on driving. I am used to driving long distance in everything...

    Road Trip

    I took the trailer out for a 100 mile run just to see how the bearings reacted. The hubs were nice and cool (considering the temp here in Texas is around 100 deg) So far I am not worried about them anymore BUT I am not stupid enough to believe nothing will go wrong. So going along with the...

    Yellowstone Camping

    Thank you for the information. I will do some more research. Still have a little time before we head that way but I know I need to make reservations soon before they are all gone.

    Yellowstone Camping

    My wife and I are going to Sturgis in August but are thinking about going to Yellowstone while we are there. Looking at the web site I can see a lot of things are booked up already for the sites we are looking at. Does anyone have any advise for places outside the park to stay? And do they...

    Turkeyday camping!

    I wish I was going to be camping. Or anywhere else but at work. But I will be at work, eating what I assume will be cold turkey and sides from Luby's. Yay for me. But I guess someone has to do it. Everyone that is hitting the roads be careful, have fun, and have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

    1998 Palomino Mustang roof total complete build

    Great job on the roof. Wish I would have seen your work before I took mine apart last week. I tried to go back with like materials and no cross braces(mine is a 75 Coleman and did not have any cross bracing to begin with) and it did not work the way I would have liked for it to. I have some...

    Sagging roof

    Finally took my roof apart. Turns out there was not any wood in it at all. No supports of any kind. Just foam sandwiched by thin metal. When I took it apart I thought it was going to be easy to put back together. It was just the opposite. I used some glue that was supposed to be good for...

    Snake bit....

    Thank you all for your concern. They both continue to recover. And what a lot of you are saying is the same thing we were told by the doctors in reference to the younger snakes and their lack of control. One good thing about this situation is that the hospital is not far from TSP. So...

    Snake bit....

    Went out and had my first camping trip in my "new" pop up camper and enjoyed it. We stayed at Tyler State Park. The bad part of the trip happened on Sunday night, 3 days into the trip. My brother in law, his daughter, and one of my great nieces were all 3 walking towards the truck to go home...

    Spray Seal

    I got a 1975 Coleman Brandywine that is in fair shape but has some roof sag issues. I picked up some stainless steel sheets and plan to replace the roof in the winter once the camping "season"is over. (I live in South Texas...it is never really over). But for now this is what I did. Along...

    Not new to camping, but new to pop-up's....

    Hello from Dayton, TX. I recently was given a 1975 Coleman Brandywine. Other than the roof, it does not seem to be in bad shape. Me and my wife and kids hope to get some good use out of it.

    Sagging roof

    New member, new owner. I was recently given a 70's model Coleman Brandywine Pop up camper. The roof is sagging some because the previous owner had something sitting on top of it. Can anyone tell me, or let me know where I can find, what kind of construction is in the ceiling and would it be...
